ORLANDO, FL – With the Miami Heat taking a commanding 2-0 lead over the Milwaukee Bucks, former Wildcat Andre Iguodala brings valuable playoff experience.
There has been a lot of great basketball action so far in the Orlando Bubble, and part of that has been the play of the Miami Heat, which can in part be attributed to former Wildcat, Andre Iguodala.
Still the only remaining Wildcat in the NBA that is leftover from the Lute Olson era, Iggy is the 16-year NBA veteran that still brings plenty of knowledge and experience and more importantly joy to us fans that get to watch him compete.

Having been drafted by Philadelphia all the way back in 2004, he may not quite be the same player as he once was, however, his impact in the playoffs can still be seen and felt.
Iggy is the same player that helped guide the Golden State Warriors to the NBA Championship in 2014-15, and earned Finals MVP in the process. Averaging 16.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game through six games, Iggy came up big.
Beyond his offensive contributions, he was more known for the stellar defensive play on NBA Superstar, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
However, that was a few years ago, and age has caught up with Iggy a bit.
In this playoffs, he is only be averaging 4.2 points and 2.8 rebounds per game, however, he again brings that playoff experience and pedigree on a team that is performing well currently.
As it stands, the Heat took a commanding 2-0 lead over the NBA’s top team the Milwaukee Bucks last night, and it has been a great team effort in seeing Iggy continue to bring value in this league.
He is also one of the few remaining Wildcats in the NBA Playoffs, so it is always great seeing our former guys succeed! As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
