Andre Iguodala's letter to 76ers fans a reflection of his class


Did you see Andre Iguodala’s letter to Sixers fans on his website? You can read it here.

"I would like to take the time to thank you and all your devoted sports fans for the passion, loyalty and spirit that you gave to me during eight seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers," Iguodala wrote. "Tonight I begin a new chapter in my career but I will always share my accomplishments with the city and the organization and I thank you both for all that you have done for me.”

Say what you want to about Iguodala, but the guy has always carried himself with dignity and class – and this is a perfect example. It’s always good to see the unfiltered writing of an athlete and this comes off as sincere.

Of course, fans are entitled to react anyway they so choose, and it will be interesting to see what type of reception he receives tonight at Wells Fargo Center.
