Where Iggy Ranks

Where Andre Iguodala ranks among the Sixers' all-time leaders.

Where Iggy Ranks

Many basketball fans in the city have been hoping for Andre Iguodala's departure from the Sixers for almost as long as he has been here. And now that he's leaving, he has certainly left his mark.

He is seventh on the Sixers' all-time scoring list (not including the franchise's tenure in Syracuse). He leaves having played more regular season games than Charles Barkley and averaging more minutes per game than all but three players that have pulled on the red, white and blue.

Here is where Iggy stands among Sixers' career leaders:

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
