Andre Iguodala has announced his retirement.
Golden State’s Andre Iguodala officially announced his retirement on the 13th (Korean time) after Golden State’s 2023 NBA온라인카지노 Playoffs journey concluded.
Iguodala, who entered the professional stage with the ninth overall pick in the 2004 NBA draft, slowly improved over eight seasons in Philadelphia. In particular, in the early 2010s, he led the team with Cruz Halladay and Evan Turner, and in 2011, he was selected as the All-Defensive Second Team, and in 2012, he was honored with the first All-Star selection of his career, rising to the ranks of stars.
After spending one season in Denver, Iguodala joined Golden State in July 2013. His shooting weakness, which had been pointed out since his debut, was obvious, but he built a core lineup with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green with his long arms and excellent physical defense.
Iguodala’s defense, which was named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team in the 2013-2014 season, the first season after the transfer, was the hidden driving force behind the birth of the Golden State Dynasty.
In particular, in the 2015 NBA Finals against Cleveland, he came off the bench and tied LeBron James tightly, becoming the first protagonist to hold the Final MVP trophy in his arms without starting during the regular season and finals.
Iguodala played the role of a veteran as a locker room leader who held the center of the team from the bench, even though his skills declined as he got older, and won four championships with Golden State in 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2022. occupied
After signing a one-year contract with Golden State last summer and hinting at retirement by appearing on a podcast called ‘Point Forward’, Iguodala put an end to his not-so-glamorous but heavy career with this season.
