Iguodala: I’m Happy Teams Want Me

(Andre) Iguodala isn’t asking anybody to feel sorry for him. As part of his reward for being a member of the U.S. Olympic team and an NBA all-star, the 28-year-old forward will be paid $14.7 million during his first season in Denver, which also could be his last. Iguodala can opt out of his contract in 2013 and seek a spot on one of those super teams that are all the rage.
“I’m happy to be in the NBA. Happy to still have a job,” said Iguodala, a versatile player blessed with superb defensive skills who ultimately fell out of favor in Philadelphia because he never seemed comfortable being the man to strap a team on his back. “It’s just a blessing, because only 400 guys get to play in the NBA. And I’m happy to be a player wanted by so many teams.”
His words were pure, 100 percent fake sugar. The smile on his face seemed to be applied by paint. Iguodala is no doubt an ultimate professional. But, I had to know, was he really happy to be joining the Nuggets?
