Denver Nuggets forward Andre Iguodala spent 8 seasons here in Philadelphia in a battle of love and hate.
Iguodala was a really solid player and defensive stopper, but never reached the All Star level heights that fans here in Philadelphia expected from him.
It also didn’t help that his initials were A.I. and that was pressure in itself trying to carry the franchise reigns from the Answer, Allen Iverson.
Days after getting traded, Iguodala fired some negative shots at Sixer fans and head coach Doug Collins.
Iggy now wants to let bygone be bygones, and wrote a heart-felt letter to Sixer fans on his website via Crossing Broad.
I would like to take the time to thank you and all your devoted sports fans for the passion, loyalty and spirit that you gave to me during my eight seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers.
Thanks as well to the 76ers organization, who gave me the opportunity to fulfill my lifelong dream of playing in the NBA and provided me with a great front office of dedicated people to work with. I would also like to thank all the coaches, trainers and teammates that I was blessed to compete along side and build lasting relationships with here.
Tonight I begin a new chapter in my career but I will always share my accomplishments with the city and the organization and I thank you both for all that you have done for me.
I guess Dre decided to go green, and not take out a newspaper ad.
