    Lakes tough to day ‘No’ to: Pelinka (the overmatched) and LBJ (the matchless).

    Iggy will do what Iggy will do.

    How much is that?

    How many millions would he conceivably have to turn down If we cashed the full remaining MLE for him?

    Iggy is a team player. He didnt care much about being a bench or starter in Golden State. so pretty sure #2 wouldnt be too big a deal to him.

    actually iggy did care that he was benched that first season and the season after... https://bluemanhoop.com/2019/07/13/golden-state-warriors-andre-iguodala-struggles-bench/
    it only became a non-issue because lebron had to play by himself with kyrie and klove out in the 2015 finals and gsw won the championship by default. had they lost? would've been a completely different story. and pretty sure he had some deep-rooted issues with it, otherwise he wouldn't have said "i only do what slavemaster tells me to do..." in 2017-2018. by the end of gsw's run, it really did seem like him and kerr weren't as close as they once were.

    honestly at first, when igoudala was traded to memphis, i wanted no part of him. then after the clips got kawhi and pg, i was thinking the rockets really needed someone like igoudala. but now after remembering how much of an asshole iggy really is and the fact that anyone associated with gsw makes me want to puke, i'd rather the rockets go for jae crowder if it's anyone on memphis. i mean, let's say we get igoudala and then win the championship -- i don't want igoudala to be any part of the reason as to why we win a championship. him and kerr will just repeat their nonsensical crap saying they really would've beaten the rockets in 5 regardless of cp3's hamstring or not. don't want any part of igoudala... insensitive, conceited asshole of a player.

    Lakers prob more likely imo. Bc now if u move AD to 5, Kuz to 4 and Iggy to 3 that could be a legit lineup

    Personally I think Iggy is over the hill. He'd build a house with bricks over here

    He can still defend and that makes him worth rostering in the west -staring down the barrel of Kawhi and Paul George.

    No brainer to sign him if he'd like to come here.
