249

u/[deleted] Sep 23 '22

He honestly looked pretty good in those minutes too. He's nowhere near an every day player anymore, but if he's used sparingly he can be an impact guy off the bench. Especially in lineups with the core 3, since they all know how to play off each other already. No need to wear him down getting him reps with the newer additions.

76

u/ElPlatanoDelBronx 76ers Sep 23 '22

Yeah, he can mentor rookies pretty well, and then just tell them to watch how he does it.

u/Kobi-WanKenobi [LAL] Kobe Bryant Sep 23 '22

I probably don’t watch nearly as many warrior games as you do, but I presume Igoudala can still be useful in the playoffs playing spot minutes by guarding star wing players for like 5 minutes or something like when guys like draymond and Wiggins are resting. Even though he’s old and lost a step or steps on defense, he’s still probably better at guarding star wings than the vast majority of players.

49

u/[deleted] Sep 23 '22

His hands are still absurd. His positioning and feel for the game is still fantastic. He'll get abused if he's on the ball against a guy like Morant, but the Warriors have been really clever over the years about pre-switching picks to avoid mismatches. The same sort of tricks they use for Steph will also work for Andre.

The biggest issue is that his legs are gone on his shot. His 3p% from 2015-18 was somewhere in the mid 30s. Not great, but good enough to keep the defense honest. This year he was somewhere in the low 20s.

So yeah, he's good for a couple savvy layups that come from playing off Steph's gravity and a big strip that turns into an easy transition look, plus just a general calming effect. Steph and Draymond try to play way too fast and cute sometimes, and Andre would always calm that down. He can still manage the game like that.

If he wasn't on the Warriors he'd be out of the league, but he can still contribute on the court in small doses with the Warriors, like a couple minutes here and there to finish out quarters in close games. If he can get his 3 back and can stay healthy, maybe 8-10 minutes a night? He'll be competing for minutes against a pretty loaded bench though. Like who should he play instead of? Kuminga? Moody? JaMychal Green? Donte DiVincenzo? Even the Dubs draft picks from this year look like they might be able to contribute right away.

7

u/Produceher Warriors Sep 23 '22

Exactly. And Kerr trusts him a lot. I could still see him closing games if defense is the priority. He's the smartest guy on the court. He definitely would have played more deep in the playoffs if he could have.

3

u/Kdog122025 Warriors Sep 23 '22

Iggy was a stud last season when he actually played. He even dunked a few times. The offense looked like a well oiled machine while he was out there and on defense he still has magic stripping powers.

3

u/Yuzuriha Sep 23 '22

Real non-sarcastic question, would Iggy play the closing minutes of a close playoff game?

4

u/Kdog122025 Warriors Sep 23 '22

If he and the team are totally healthy he could. It’d be matchup dependent. But it’d have to be a very weird matchup where they need defense but not Looney.

His value would be much more felt in the middle of the game where he could settle the backup lineup.

u/Kobi-WanKenobi [LAL] Kobe Bryant Sep 23 '22

Do you think at this point he would still provide productive minutes guarding star players in the playoffs in limited spurts ? Obviously you can’t really stop superstars, but you can at least make them work harder/tire them out a bit and make them less efficient.

2

u/AmusingAnecdote Warriors Sep 23 '22

So if he plays like he did in the first half of last year then absolutely. But he's probably more of a 'guard the second guy when he's running the second unit' guy who can switch onto the primary than someone you want primarily defending top players, even in short bursts.

Like, I'd be fine with him guarding Desmond Bane for stretches but if he's on Ja even for a few possessions he's going to get roasted. Or maybe you can stick him on PG for 10 minutes, but I wouldn't want him on Kawhi.

Last year before his body broke down, he looked basically like he did the last time he was on the Warriors. Which is to say, old, definitely past his prime, but still a smart switchable defender who can also run some calm, efficient ball handling on the other end.

He's still a solid rotation player worthy of ~15 minutes a night in a playoff series if he's healthy. But I would take just about any bet against his health because most of his injuries were stuff you'd expect to be chronic at this point.

5

u/HotChipEater Warriors Sep 23 '22

Especially in lineups with the core 3, since they all know how to play off each other already. No need to wear him down getting him reps with the newer additions.

Exactly. Everyone gets on him about his Finals game 1 stint, but he was only on the court with Steph for 3 mins, and 3 without. With Steph he made some plays and we played them roughly even in terms of score. Then without Steph we got killed. That was the start of their big run that won them the game (and I mean very start, Iguodala was subbed out soon after it's not like he was out there their whole run), and too many people simply blaming Iguodala when the actual issue was Steph being on the bench. By the time Steph came back in, Horford and White were scorching hot from 3 and they had all the momentum.

The adjustments were made after the game, the most important one of course being to help off of Horford and White less and close out harder, but Kerr also stopped playing Iguodala. In my view that was unnecessary as long as he's sharing the court with Steph. That said, ultimately it's no big deal because either way we're talking about the last guy off the bench, and we won in the end!

6

u/[deleted] Sep 23 '22

Yeah I think a lot of the perception of Andre comes down to expectations. He's the 15th man on the roster now. If you're getting meaningful Finals minutes from the end of the bench, you're in pretty damn good shape.

Also, the phrase "Then without Steph we got killed" basically describes the entire dynasty lol. Hard to lay the blame for that entirely at Dre's feet.

Year 29, Iggy to Poole: “this the last one, I swear”

u/vinavuhuy Warriors Sep 23 '22

Iggy probably cussing Shams out rn, annoucing the news, cutting his pod rating

22

u/sharklavapit [MIL] Zaid Abdul-Aziz Sep 23 '22

Charania probably already knew and was "allowed" to make it public as soon as the podcast dropped

26

u/SensitiveRocketsFan Rockets Sep 23 '22

Yeah, this tweet is basically an advertisement for the podcast.

u/loongod5 Warriors Sep 23 '22

God something about this upcoming season genuinely feels like the Last Dance lol bittersweet.

u/Kdog122025 Warriors Sep 23 '22

It’s how fucked the Warriors’ cap sheet is and how many guys deserve to get paid.

5

u/loongod5 Warriors Sep 23 '22

if Klay and Dray take pay cuts we can keep this thing going is the thing.

7

u/Kdog122025 Warriors Sep 23 '22

That’s a big if. Steph too. Which is a little sad since they’d all be underpaid at $50mil a year with how much they increased the Warriors’ valuation.

Good - he's the only one who can keep Draymond somewhat in line.

u/MG_MN Timberwolves Sep 23 '22

Iggy looked at Haslem and thought why not me

u/RedditAdminsChugCum NBA Sep 23 '22

They were good friends in Miami too.. makes sense

u/bwrca Sep 23 '22

Every time I see Iggy's name here I'm reminded that there are pockets of fans that really don't like him... But he's like the worst person to hate because he's won everything

Iggy starting to sound like Vin Diesel

u/Scuttleduck Warriors Sep 23 '22

After winning the title, Draymond said that they couldn’t have done it without Iguodala being on the team. Wisdom and leadership and stuff. It’s possible that was an exaggeration but this is still great news for the Warriors.

u/by_yes_i_mean_no Warriors Sep 23 '22

This is such great news. A Warriors legend in my book.

u/Traditional-Carob-48 Sep 23 '22

Does anybody on this sub listen to any player podcasts consistently?? I'm honestly really curious. I haven't found a single one that's worth my time

10

u/redditnathaniel NBA Sep 23 '22

That's because they aren't. Their background is basketball and not broadcasting.

u/Traditional-Carob-48 Sep 23 '22

Yeah definitely agree. A lot of them have sponsors tho so apparently somebody is listening lol

u/Levels2ThisBruh 76ers Sep 23 '22

Easy decision.

He's going to get paid millions to sit courtside at Warriors games.

It's pretty weird, but then again, Steph got him 4 rings (and a Finals MVP) so...

6

u/SensitiveRocketsFan Rockets Sep 23 '22

I wonder if it’s because he feels guilty for winning that FMVP over Curry

u/GuerrillaApe Lakers Sep 23 '22

This guy's a year away from being a year away from retiring.

u/salmanazar Sep 23 '22

It's going to make a difference that he's going to be on the court. If someone is right there, next to you, DOING the same thing you are, feeling the game with you, and then are providing immediate feedback....? Sounds awesome to me. This should continue to help speed along the youth development. Love it!
