In the first quarter of Monday’s game between the Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers, Warriors’ guard Stephen Curry threw one of the longest alley oops you will ever see.
Curry has recently been told by Warriors’ head coach Mark Jackson to limit his turnovers and throwing picture-perfect 70-foot alley oops to Andre Iguodala is a good way to do just that.
When the Warriors added Iguodala in the offseason, getting out in transition even more was probably a big part of their plan. Curry, Iguodala, Harrison Barnes and Klay Thompson are excellent athletes and we could continue to see excellent plays like this throughout the season.
The Warriors signed Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million deal. Iguodala spent the first eight years of his career with the Philadelphia 76ers until he was traded to the Denver Nuggets before last season in part of the four-team deal that sent Dwight Howard to the Lakers.
Iguodala has averaged 8.7 point, 6.7 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game in his first three games.
