When the Sixers drafted Andre Iguodala last year, Sixers fans didn’t really know him, now he is a fan favorite. The guy has hops, throwing down huge jams night in and night out. But he isn’t just a leaper, the kid has game. He became the first rookie this season to pull off a tripple double.
ANDRE IGUODALA, it turns out, is a practitioner. The 76ers rookie practices the lost art of impacting a game without necessarily scoring much. He didn’t score at all until the third quarter of last night’s 107-84 victory over the NBA defending champion Detroit Pistons, but he did just about everything else other than tape his teammates’ ankles. And before it was over, he emerged as the first rookie this season to record a triple-double, finishing with 10 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, helping the Sixers climb to 33-34 and remain No. 8 in the Eastern Conference playoff seedings.
