Andre Iguodala Double Crossover Sends Quincy Miller Into Oblivion

Andre Iguodala, Quincy Miller

This was a sequence you might have seen on the And-1 Mixtape Tour 10 years ago when fans would faint from the feints and bedlam would erupt by the dribbling chicanery of Hot Sauce.

Injuries and busts and yes, even old age, all played a part in this one, but now that the fantasy season is ending, here is this year’s All-Disappointment Team.
