Here’s what happened. Sixers down by 3. Time expiring. Iggy shoots a three. Misses BUT gets fouled. Awesome. He hits the first one. Hits the second one. And then…
Misses the third one. Misses a chance to tie the game. Then, with the Sixers still down THREE mind you and with even less time left in the game (about 11 seconds) he gets the ball and shoots a TWO point jump shot that again clanks off the rim. Is he the dumbest player ever? Why are you shooting a two when you’re down three with 11 seconds left? Good God man, you might be the dumbest 80 million dollar player ever.
Here’s what one of the writers over at Liberty Ballers, the best place to go for all things Sixers, wrote about the miss: “Despite a very good overall game, one that saw him score 19 points on 11 shots, dish out 5 assists, commit no turnovers, and hold Stephen Jackson to 14 points on 16 shots, I’m sure all the talking heads will mention tomorrow is Iguodala’s missed free throw. Whatever.”
Well, yeah. Of course that’s what all the talking heads will talk about. Because it’s called a “FREE throw” it’s supposed to be a gimmie. But with the game on the line, he choked. Cause he is a choke artist. He is a great third man on a team, a decent second option and a horrible “super star.”
He needs to make that shot. But he didn’t and he never will.
You know why all the “talking heads” will be talking about that missed free throw? Because he is the Sixers “Best Player” and he is making 80 million dollars and he is supposed to win games for us. But he doesn’t. He never did. Actually, check that, I remember that one playoff game against Orlando when he hit a three pointer to win the game. But you know what’s funny about that? He missed a free throw that would’ve put the game away just a possession earlier. Then made a miracle three and acted like he was the shit.
He’s not the shit. He is shit.
Get rid of him and let Turner take his minutes.
