Andre Iguodala said that getting traded to the Miami Heat reinvigorated his love for basketball.
“I kind of got excited about basketball again. Playing with [the Golden State Warriors], we go to the Finals every year, and the media scrutiny behind every single move — you get exhausted. You’ve had a good break, but then you kind of see where the game’s trending, you don’t know, it’s like, ‘Where do I fit in?’,” Iguodala told Nick Friedell of ESPN.
Iguodala was traded to the Heat as part of a package that also involved Soloman Hill and Jae Crowder.
Iguodala said his versatility can make an impact for the Heat.
“It’s kind of a blessing in disguise, like this is the perfect spot. I can do a lot of different things here. A lot of different things. It doesn’t have to be just defense or just passing. Or just in the corners. It’s going to be good. It’s going to be good. I’m going to do a lot of different things.”
