Very nice Brian.

Those are pretty nice numbers for someone who is just "average" and "extremely overpaid".

The one thing I've been banking on all summer is the fact that he's such a hard worker.

Look what hard work can do. MJ went from 13% to 37% from downtown in two years. If he can do that, I think Iguodala's good for a couple percentage points.

The fact that he shot so many more 3s last year and still improved his % is heartening.

I hope Iggy won't have to play that many minutes this coming season, I feel that most importantly his turnovers go down while all his shooting percentages should go up.

If he could somehow go back to shooting about 80% from the line and about 48% from the field, we have a winner.

I think it's obvious to all of us who've followed the team the past few years that Iggy is more than an average player.

We know what we're gonna get from him and Miller and probably Brand over the season. The X-Factor will really be Thad.

Thad and Lou, probably. The positive is that they really don't need to get much out of Thad, but I'll get to that when I do his Looking Ahead piece. He's up next.

You spelt my name wrong and you mentioned Fat Lever in the same comparison as me. Really Brian? Really?

Fixed the mis-spelling, good eyes. Fat had 4 awesome years in the middle of his career. Sorry, Scottie.

Excellent points, especially the 3pt %. I'm surprised how bad some of those players shot, not only for their 4th season, but for their careers as well. Most of them are known as great shooters from the outside! I dont know why Iggy gets such a bad rep for his outside shooting. What he did last year was as good or better than most of those players.
I'm also excited about his size difference over the average SG. He should be a nightmare for most of them. He's taller than Ray Allen, Raja Bel, Ben Gordan, C Mobley, Dwyane Wade... just to name a few.

Absolutely. I think he's probably taller than most 2 guards, stronger than just about all of them.

Brian, I love the optomism but 22 pts a game for Iggy? The problem will be if he tries to justify that contract with more scoring. For the better of the team it would help if he averaged 17-18 pts a game with the efficient future superstar Thad young getting more looks. If he leads the league in assists for sg's then our win totals will be maximized.

I think he bumps his scoring up on fewer shots. More efficient. The guys who will lose points are Andre Miller and Willie Green (hopefully). 22 may be too high, but it's not out of the question. I don't think he'll have to press to get there, offense should be much easier for him.

Definitely appreciate the insight Brian it is intriguing that he stacks up pretty well.
I’m not sure if these are the same commenters but everyone seems a lot more satisfied with Iguodala now that we have no choice.

It seems the Philly sports scene is not too bad these days
