Of course, they may have taken him 20 picks too early, and they were debating whether to trade up to get him when no one else seemed even remotely interested, but that's beside the point.

|The man of the hour is non other than the exit-interview skipping, rumor mill grist, scourge of Philly.com (AKA the best player on the Sixers), Andre Iguodala. Let's take a look at how his on-court performance measured up to my preseason predcitions.|
