Andre Iguodala doesn't like being called 'Iggy'


This season should be an exciting season for not only the team but the fans of the Golden State Warriors. With having one of the best young shooters in the league in Stephen Curry and adding a veteran like Andre Iguodala is going to make this team a lot better than they were last year. And that’s saying something.

Last season Golden State didn’t do that bad as they picked up the sixth seed in the Western Conference with a 47-35 record. I figured the team would fall off a bit after trading Monta Ellis but they held up fairly well. Iguodala is going to add more fuel to Golden States fire, which could lead to this team winning around 55 or maybe closer to 60 wins next season.

I strongly believe in this team and believe signing Iguodala is going to help them a lot for as long as he remains a Warrior. One small thing about Iguodala is, he doesn’t like to be called ‘Iggy’ by just anybody.

“I’ve never liked that, since I was a kid I was called that My teammates can call me that, they know me and can get away with that. But I’m not good with the name.” Iguodala told CSN Bay Area.

Hopefully reporters take note of this interview and don’t make the mistake of calling him ‘Iggy’.
