‘Star sixth man’ Iguodala retires after 20 years in the game

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala is retiring after nearly two decades in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

“I’m retiring to spend more time with my family,” Iguodala told the ESPN-owned Endscape website on Monday (Nov. 21), according to the Associated Press.

Iguodala, who made his NBA debut with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2004, joined the Denver Nuggets in 2012 before moving to Golden State in 2013.

During his six years with Golden State, he won championship rings in 2015, 2017, and 2018.

He briefly played for the Miami Heat in 2020, but returned to Golden State the following year to become a member of the 2022 championship team, collecting a total of four championship rings.토스카지노

The 2015 championship game, in particular, was the pinnacle of Iguodala’s career. Facing the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers, Iguodala had a breakout game that helped Golden State win the series 4-2.

Iguodala became the first player in history to be named Most Valuable Player (MVP) without starting a game in the series.

After averaging 11.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 4.2 assists in 1,231 NBA games, Iguodala joined Team USA at the 2012 London Olympics, where he won a gold medal.
