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. Except this was Andre Iguodala performing a double-crossover on Quincy Miller during an NBA game. Miller was so thoroughly bamboozled by Iggy, he was left grasping at air and falling on his face.

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. Many league titles probably came down to no-name players like Alec Burks and Darren Collison making huge contributions but much of the season was dominated by the continued absence and abysmal play of these five should-be studs.

Many players flourish after the All-Star break, coming back rejuvenated and lighting the league on fire. Kevin Durant, for example, took it up yet another notch and has averaged 35 points, seven rebounds and six assists on 51 percent shooting since returning. Read More »

Bob Myers

While the players receive all of the attention on the court, it is the general managers who construct the teams off the court, in hopes of leading their organizations to great success. Without these executives, it is difficult to fathom how professional franchises would properly function.

At the end of each season, the NBA gives out the Executive of the Year award, which is voted on by executives of the league’s 30 teams. The season is now closer to completion than it is to its start, and the race this year is certainly tight. Read More »
