Introducing . . . Andre Iguodala

Andre Iguodala says he never demanded to be the last 76er introduced by the public address announcer.

Introducing . . . Andre Iguodala


It's almost silly.

No, it IS silly.

It's a report in the Denver Post saying ''The word out of Philadelphia is that Iguodala demaqnded he be announced fifth and last during pregame introductions, despite the addition of Allen Iverson to the lineup.''

\"That's crazy,'' Iguodala said before tonight's game against Golden State. ''That doesn't even sound like me.''

Iguodala is the last Sixer introduced, but that's because the team made a decision to introduce Iverson fourth.

Sixers president/general manager Ed Stefanski said the report ''has no merit.''
