Andre Iguodala Takes Passive Swipe at Allen Iverson


Photo: Penn Live

Last night, Barack Obama delivered what could be his final State of the Union address. Following the speech, House Speaker John Boehner nearly tore the president’s arm off, giving him a handshake that made Obama’s head thrust backward like that of a meager child who had absorbed a direct hit from an angry dodgeball. 

But it was what happened during the speech that interests us: Andre Iguodala and Spencer Hawes engaged in moderately entertaining banter on Twitter, and that led to this comment from Iggy:

Now, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who he’s talking about– seemingly one Mr. Allen Iverson.

  1. I was trying to come up with some comment about Iguodala bing a loser like Obama, but then I realized it is the sixers and no one cares about the sixers.

  2. mk…”no one cares about the Sixers” as in you don’t. I do, so blow me and every other Sixer fan. They are an awesome team to watch and deserve support.

  3. Yeah the Sixers are great.
    They won the championship right?
    What’s that? The playoffs haven’t started yet?
    Get lost then.

  4. Dont think thats what he meant. Spencer sent a similar message that was against Obama, and Iggy was supporting him, didnt mean to take jab

  5. I gotta agree with Jake on this one. Apparently Spencer Hawes is a political nut. Per his wikipedia:
    “Hawes is a conservative Republican and a critic of Al Gore’s documentary An Inconvenient Truth.[9] ESPN reported on draft night that he loves to debate politics and has a ‘God Bless George W. Bush’ bumper sticker on his automobile. Hawes has appeared on the Lars Larson Show, a conservative radio talk show.”

  6. Is it just me or is Andre Iguadala the only one who believes he is the leader of this team… He is the self proclaimed leader, and will never will be the real leader.

  7. iggy made the comment not hawes. has nothing to do with hawes, really. just seemed like he was making a joke, which was aimed at iverson

  8. ..again…WHO CARES!!? They are athletes having fun via Twitter…
    If Republicans win (they won’t, because apparent “front runner” Romney reeks of “rich, white male who does not care about the middle class”) this upcoming election…again WHO CARES!!!??!?
    Nothing major will change in Washington, they have built the black hole of governments, no real measurable progress, just “he said, she said” drama on blast via lobbying TV/Radio network conglomerates.
    Seriously wtf was that “Stop Online Piracy Act” and “PROTECT IP Act” bulls*it all about. Its crap like that, that gives me no confidence in our government.

  9. “No one cares about the Sixers.”
    You obviously do if you’re reading and commenting on this post.
    I think people are wrong to assume that Obama is going to walk away with the election just because the Republican Party is unable to nominate a competent, likeable candidate. The truth is, one of the biggest reasons Obama won in 2008 is that people voted for him that had never voted before, and probably never will again, because Diddy and Oprah told them to. While celebrities always blindly throw their unwanted political opinions around during election time, 2008 saw this on an extreme level, and it actually influenced the outcome of the election. I don’t think you’ll see nearly as much celebrity campaigning this time around.

  10. when a news agency, website or blog posts a TWIT and calls it news – I call them SHIT

  11. “Nothing major will change in Washington, they have built the black hole of governments, no real measurable progress, just “he said, she said” drama on blast via lobbying TV/Radio network conglomerates.” – Aaron
    Some of the wisest words ever written here.

  12. It was in response to Spencer Hawes’s posts about the SOTU. It has nothing to do with Iverson and if you had researched this at all, you’d realize that. Wow what a miss.

  13. Asked Iguodala about the exchange pregame. He says neither he nor Hawes wrote that about Iverson. I believe him.
