Iguodala Turning into Sixers Leading Man?
I DON’T KNOW WHETHER two free throws can change a legacy, but for one night, at least, Andre Iguodala was finally what Philadelphia had begged him to be – the leading man, the guy who made the plays that carried the team to victory.
It hasn’t been too much to ask. After all, he is the Sixer with the biggest contract, the one who has been sold as the face of the franchise.
Now, let’s be real, because sinking two free throws with 2.2 seconds left isn’t exactly like draining a long jumper the buzzer to win.
That’s the realm of the Michael Jordans, Larry Birds and Kobe Bryants.
Still given Iguodala’s star-crossed history as a Sixer, Philadelphia will gladly take what he delivered Thursday night.
