Last Word on Iguodala

January 21, 2011 Adam Thomas

This is it, after this, I will no longer be posting about Andre Iguodala.  But I had to post about last night.

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.


The Sixers Blow…another game

January 20, 2011 Adam Thomas

That seemed impossible.  Up 4 with 20 seconds to play, I thought for sure the Sixers had the game in the bag.  But then, of course, they blew it.

Mark Zumoff said something like this right before the final Magic play of regulation, “Well, the Sixers are up 4 with 20 seconds left to play…you would think they’re gonna win unless the unthinkable happens and they foul someone taking a three pointer.”

Aaaaaaaand….guess what happened?  THAT!  EXACTLY THAT!

Andre “I am the biggest idiot and the worst 80 million dollar player ever” Iguodala tries to follow his man, puts a hand in his face and gets called for a foul as the player drills the three pointer.  Was it a foul?  Of course not.  But here’s the bigger question: WHAT THE HELL IS IGGY DOING EVEN GETTING NEAR THAT MAN WHEN THEY ARE UP BY 4 WITH 20 SECONDS LEFT?  GET AWAY FROM HIM IGGY YOU FREAKING IDIOT!  GET. AWAY. FROM. HIM!

Even if he makes the three pointer, guess what happens?  The Sixers are still up by one, they in bound, get fouled, shoot free throws.

That’s how smart teams do it.  But this is the Sixers.  Morons.  Losers.  And let me repeat that one more time.  They are losers.

They pissed away a 7 pt lead in the 4th quarter.  A second before that Magic 4 pt play, Lou Williams missed a free throw that would’ve put them up 5 and made that 4 pt play inconsequential.  But he clanked it.  Cause he is a loser.

Then, after the Magic tied the game, what play do they draw up?  Have Lou dribble the final seconds off the clock at the top of the key and launch up a terrible long range fade-away three pointer that almost drops.  Genius.  Freaking idiots.

Oh and since it worked so well at the end of regulation, they choose to do the same play at the end of overtime, only this time, they let Iggy dribble down the final seconds only to clank a lay up because he is a loser and a waste of space.

Trade him.  Trade him.  TRADE.  HIM.

And forget this team.  At best, they’re a 7 seed getting eliminated in the first round.  At worst, they’re what I watched last night.

Forget about them.  The rest of Philadelphia already has.
