Never... 99.9 percent of the time he will miss the last shot... he will hold the ball until there is 2 seconds left and take the shot and brick hard... He then turns around makes a weird dumb looking face and plays with his jersey while walking off the court... Every ****ing time to... And yet we still continue to give him the ball in that situation so I really don't feel sorry for us. I have never hated a player more in my entire life than I do Iggy... I don't care what we get for him but he needs to go.

What? Are you confusing him with someone else? With exception to this year, he has only missed 6 games in any prior season and that was in 06-07. He played all 82 games in the other 5 seasons haha.

Not on that play if I am not mistaken... Isn't that the final play before over time? He just ran down and tossed it up if I am not mistaken... Aside from that Iggy also has missed many big fts in his career... Turner was the reason we stayed in that game at the end... He had the last 6 points in regulation and some big boards.

Do some research before you post. Iggy has played 486 of 492 Sixers games before this season through a span of 6 years. In other words he's missed six games in 6 years. Often injured my ***. He has value. Stop slinging poop.

What are you talking about? The winning is true, but Iggy has played about 200 + straight games coming into this season. He just got injured this year and took a couple of games off. He was averaging 17 - 7 - 6 last year, and he's only making 12 million a year. I think that's pretty darn decent.

alot of you mix up the term "best player" with "most athletic player". he's not the best player nor shooter on the team. and he's made 1 out of his last 14 last possession shots. iggy should not have the ball in his hand with a game on the line, PERIOD

What? Iggy has hit the game winning shot for Philly more than once before. He did it against the Lakers, Magic, Grizzlies, and Timberwolves

You dont let your rookie handle the ball with the game on the line unless he's the best player on the team...which Turner is far from.

Its not smart basketball... He is a playmaker true... He is athletic true... But he is not a good jump shooter by any means... His best work is when he goes right to the basket but instead he holds the ball near the 3 point line until there is next to nothing left on the clock and takes a jump shot instead of playing to his strengths... He does it every time... There is no excuse for why he does or why they allow him to do it... If the team wants to continue to run that play like they usually do then you allow the best shooter to take the shot... Esp when you have a team with no superstars.

I agree Turner should not have the ball on the last shot but there was 3 seconds left in regulation with no time outs and they had the ball all the way down the other end... It was irrelevant who got the ball because it was going to be a pray and shoot shot anyway... Overtime was the key... You don't allow a guy take the last shot when he misses it almost every time and yes iggy does miss it almost every time. Go look in the game day thread... Before the last play happen I said... OH no... Iggy will now hold the ball until the final 2 seconds and then take the final shot from the 3 point line and brick hard... He will then walk off with a dumb look on his face while playing with his jersey... and Guess what it happened... It always happens... Its beyond predictable... Iggy is an over paid role player... He wants to be the man but 99.9 percent of the time falls on his face... I truly Do not know what is worse... Him continually taking the shots or them allowing him to continually take the shots...

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

There are players in the NBA who play well under pressure regardless of how bad they've played the whole game. Iggy falls into that category as well as Jeff Green, Monta Ellis, and even Kobe. It should have been in Iggy's hands. Period. Besides, he was wide open during the inbounds play.

Iggy isn't a bad player at all. He's just hated by fans because of his contract (which is managements fault) and erratic play that most go to guys face. Stephen Jackson was the same type of player for the Warriors. He not only took way to many shots, but took bad ones and turned the ball over like crazy. Warriors fans hated him. But in the end whether you like it or not he was the best scorer and defender which made up for his bad shot selection.
Once they traded him to the Bobcats last season...they made the playoffs.

Trade Iggy to a good team where he isn't the go to guy and you'll see the same result

That is what I mean... He isn't the go to guy... He should not be the one shooting the final shot... Is he the best player? Sure... But that does not make him the best shooter... I would rather have Thad Young taking the shot to be honest... I don't hate iggy because of his contract... I hate him because he continually tries to be something he isn't and that is the go to guy... He always wants the ball and that wouldn't be a problem if he played to his strengths but he chooses to go outside of the box and continually jack up shots instead of taking it to the basket.

DEAR PHILADELPHIA 76ERS MANAGEMENT, get rid of his punk ***** PLEASE! I'm so tired of him it's not even funny. He's the third wheel on most teams and a douche bag on this team!

I've always thought of Iggy as a pretty level headed and respectful player. I liked him when he teamed up with the real AI. I still think he is a very good player. I would love for the Bucks to have him thats for sure. Jennings, Bogut, Iggy. Not bad.

11-24-2010, 10:41 AM
As I said in the Sixer forum:

That wasn't that bad. He was trying to call for it when there was still time. Its not like Evan's shown anything to make us think he's a go to scorer. You guys had me thinking it was going to be yelling after the play or something. 95% of that was when he was still trying to get the ball.

You guys overreact to anything. Yes the Sixers suck and we need to make moves but he's our best player, and a damn good one. I want him gone too, but have to laugh at all the people trashing him for wanting the ball over a rookie who averages 8 ppg. Oh, and you all think he's injury prone too. Well-informed posts.

Hey, kind of like Amare.

Over-paid, often injured, and his team just isnt winning atm.

Lets break down your comment on Amar'e

Over-Paid Too Early to judge. Suns were willing to give him the same contract as the knicks just 3 yr guaranteed instead of 5. Dont say nobody else was willing to give him the 5 yr max. You just dont know that. Also So Far he earned His money.. Helping the Knicks Lead the League in blocks, almost as much as half the blocks they had all last year. Could be overpaid soon, only time will tell. But This is his first year after all, so Far so Good. He could continue to play like this year by year,.. Or Get injured for the next Four years. If he stays healthy i wouldnt regret that contract. If we make the playoffs, i wouldnt regret that contract. IF. See? Im speculating like you.

often injured- yea he has injury history. Anybody in the world knows that. He's had previous eye and knee surgeries. But is it affecting his game? Hell No. This year, Amar'e's playing one of the best defense of his career averaging 1.9 blocks Whose to say he doesnt get injured again? If your concern is conditioning Nobody knows the future... NOT even you, so STOP guessing based on the PAST...

Team isnt winning at the moment- Their Riding a Four Game winning streak, and if they win tonight Amare helps the Knicks do something they havent done since 2006... A Five Game Winning Streak. We've sucked for so long.. lol
Thats called being a difference maker, It isnt the best accomplishment but this shows Amare's presence has made a difference on the Knicks...
Team is 7-8, that isnt terrible. The East is Wide Open, because its a lot easier then the West. Last year they were 1-13.. after the first fourteen games i think.. So far after fifteen games we're in playoff contention.

False, a common misconception made by the media. Do the fans enjoy messing at times with other fans? Of course (Simple things like people having a jersey on for the other team and saying something, not a big deal) Do other teams have fans that do the same exact thing? Without a doubt. I bet i'll hear about the Santa situation, another thing that people don't simply know too much about.

I bet i'll hear about the Santa situation, another thing that people don't simply know too much about.

the santa situation is the most known example of bad philly fans, but thats not what i was referring to.

eagles fans cheered michael irvin's career ending injury as he was being carted off the field on a stretcher....classy.

you guys booed mcnabb when you drafted him. i know that a lot of times fans are upset with their teams draft picks, but it was supposed to be a happy, exciting day for a young player in mcnabb, and you guys probably made him feel like ****. and you never treated him right when he was at philly. he was the eagles savior for years, but he was treated like dirt. you guys should be happy that you got mcnabb instead of ricky williams after his crazy career.

philly fans have, on multiple occasions in history, thrown batteries at opposing teams players.

a philly fan intentionally threw up on an 11 year old girl. then, when the cops came to arrest him, he threw up on one of the cops and tried to fight him.

all this, not to mention my own personal experience at philadelphia. i lived there for 3 years and my dad took me to a eagles vs. bears game. i am a chicago fan and was wearing my brian urlacher jersey. the bears lost by 3. besides the fact that my favorite team lost, it was the WORST sporting event experience of my life. 90% of the other philly fans around me were drunken idiots. they were talking trash to my dad and I the entire game. do you know how annoying it is to hear some drunk, fat douche bag sitting directly behind you talking **** for 3 hours straight? beer was being spilled on us throughtout the game. not on purpose, but because every one around us was wasted.

i know you can say that this stuff happens at every stadium, and philadelphia just has a bad rep already and thats why everyone thinks philly fans suck. no!!! philly fans suck because its true. this kind of stuff happens at other stadiums around the country, but it happens an abnormal amount at philly. the ONLY recent story i can think of off the top of my head of another team having an incident like this is at paul brown stadium when the little kid was tackled.

the santa situation is the most known example of bad philly fans, but thats not what i was referring to.

eagles fans cheered michael irvin's career ending injury as he was being carted off the field on a stretcher....classy.

you guys booed mcnabb when you drafted him. i know that a lot of times fans are upset with their teams draft picks, but it was supposed to be a happy, exciting day for a young player in mcnabb, and you guys probably made him feel like ****. and you never treated him right when he was at philly. he was the eagles savior for years, but he was treated like dirt. you guys should be happy that you got mcnabb instead of ricky williams after his crazy career.

how'd he throw a temper tantrum? he looked disappointed...that's all. and plus, Turner missed the FT's and it cost them the game.

This.

Plus, it's an inbound play. You pass it in to either 1. Your Rookie, or 2. Your playmaker...

Seems pretty justified to me

hold on a second here.
are you guys actually pegging the blame on Iggy and Iggy alone ?

:laugh:

you guys are hilarious.


first of all did anyone watch iggy in the summer tourny ? he was
incredable. thats what happens when a good coach knows what
to do with a good player.

phillie doesnt know how to use its assets, why cant turner and iggy
co-exist ? because the coaching staff doesnt know how to make them
co-exist. there should be no problems with having two swingmen that are
that good to play the 2-3 position. and guess what the last shot should
be going to Iggy and not the rookie. thats a coaching problem right there.

if you guys actually think iggy is a problem on your team, im gonna ask you
to watch the summer games again where he out shined almost every other
player on the team.

iggy will get traded, and the 76ers are still gonna suck for a long time.
phillie can actually have somthing nice with iggy and turner together,
they should keep that tandem and make iggy the go to guy obviously
and turner as the 2nd go to guy. and build around those two.
theres no reason why those two cant be playing along side eachother effectivly
the last shot should def be going to iggy and not the rookie, to me that is a coaching error.

Its not smart basketball... He is a playmaker true... He is athletic true... But he is not a good jump shooter by any means... His best work is when he goes right to the basket but instead he holds the ball near the 3 point line until there is next to nothing left on the clock and takes a jump shot instead of playing to his strengths...

I couldn't agree more. His clutch play (4th quarter/OT+ stats) have been awful and I wouldn't want him taking the final shot under any circumstances.

'10-11:

Iguodala - (-20.7 Net48, .200 eFG% & 0.0 Win%)

Shot Selection:

Jump - 60%
Close - 20%
Dunk - 20%
Tips - 0%
Inside - 40%

It's pretty evident that this guy sucks during the 4th quarter/OT. Iggy's shot selection is horrible and the Sixers have produced 0 wins everytime he receives 25%+ of the minutes available.

he outshined because he wasnt asked to be the best player. durant did the scoring while iggy was the second swingman who could roam off the ball and play shutdown defense. when hes asked to be the scorer he is not as good. "the coaching staff doesnt know how to use him" because they dont have a scoring swingman to put next to him (maybe turner becomes that). but you cant use the guy the right way when the team is built different and with less talent than the usa team

Def off-topic but I didn't know that was a common occurrence. Apparently batteries are thrown at opposing fans also. My friends went to a Mets v. Philly game and said that after the game, batteries came flying their way and dented their car. One friend had his little brother with him.
