The Sixth Man Andre Iguodala | FB2

Andre Iguodala

“I’ve always loved reading. It came from my mother. Reading was simply a nonnegotiable in my house. If you weren’t reading, you weren’t achieving. The other thing we read at home was the newspaper. This also came from my mom. She insisted on it. She made sure we were keeping ourselves educated. I learned to be interested in world affairs, business, culture, and media. I learned how stories were told and how media and journalism worked. We were well educated, well mannered, well taken care of, and critical thinkers.”

==========

"On the first day of seventh grade I walked into my first-period classroom. We had been given our bell schedule the day before, and I was excited to sit down and get started on a new year....

But I knew something was off, because when I walked into the room, I noticed that all the other kids were white.

I had been placed in the honors track. I didn’t yet think a lot about why it was that the honors track meant all white students except for me.

The teacher stopped me almost immediately.

“I think you might be in the wrong classroom, dear,” she said.

“Nope. Right one.” I still wasn’t really aware of what was happening. Obviously, I had read my schedule and knew which classroom I was supposed to go to. That’s just basic.

Still, she seemed unconvinced.

“Are you sure?”

“Yes, I’m sure, ha-ha.”

This whole thing was silly. I was already headed for a seat, thinking this little interaction was over. But it wasn’t for her.

She followed behind me.

“Can you show me your schedule, hon?” she said.

This time she seemed a little more forceful. It was then that I started to understand. I presented her the schedule I had crumpled in my hand. She looked it over for a moment.

“Ah. OK,” she said quietly. “Take your seat then.”

Did I really get asked to show my papers?

The freedom to be unaware of racism simply doesn’t last long if you’re black."

and yes....

+ colleges do ruthlessly exploit amateur athletes while some coaches get 7-figure paychecks, the school rakes in the alumni donations and the sports TV media make a mint. They should be paid. If they don't make to the Bigs, and very few do, they have been used and left broke.

+ the media are wolves. With 24/7 coverage and sports media full of hacks, who live off of, or even make up, rumors, and too many so-called "analysts," the media is a pain in the ass to athletes and annoying to some of us fans. Many are simply jealous they don't make the money that these athletes do.

+ Philly is a brutal town to play a sport in, any sport, because the fans are so nasty and well, they have the media as described above. As an example, Iguodala mentions a long interview he did with Sports Illustrated. He says SI got it right, but some in the Philly media took some of his comments about a teammate out of context and made him look as if he was attacking his teammate. This got the Philly fan base roiled up all over again over what was essentially a lie.

"The fans and press in Philadelphia are like the fans and press nowhere else. And that’s a good thing. None of us could stand it if the whole country was like that."

+ the officiating was blatantly biased.....

"Kevin Durant was averaging eight or nine free throws a game in Oklahoma City. In his first year with us, he averaged six. Steph, over his career, all with the Warriors, has averaged between four and five free throws per game, and I’ve watched him come into practice the next day with quarter-inch-deep gashes on his arms from plays that were not called. It’s hard to imagine a back-to-back MVP, unanimous the second time, only getting to the line a handful of times per game like that. Most guys who average 30 points a game shoot way more free throws.

I recently had an assistant coach from another team text me after we played them. He and I went way back to my teenage years. He wanted to congratulate us on keeping our composure during the game. “What do you mean?” I asked. “Our game plan,” he said, “is just to foul the shit out of you. We tell our guys every time-out, just foul the ball handler every time. We know they’re not going to call it.”

So we know that the scouting report on us for most teams is, essentially, rough them up. Knock them around. They’re not going to get the calls.

Even though this had been my sense all along, it was still surprising to hear it so obviously stated by someone else in the league. Why would this even be the case? Does the league feel like we’re too good? Like we could just blow teams out, which would drive down viewership?"

Some reality check....

"Basketball is often for people who have no other choice. If you genuinely have other options, you wouldn’t go as far and face as much. You play for fun, but once it gets serious, once it becomes life-or-death, most people will, if they can, find something a little more stable and a little less critical to do with their lives."

And if you happen to follow pro basketball, you will know how the Warriors franchise "signed off" on putting Kevin Durant into a play-off game where a resulting achilles injury may have have ruined his career. The franchise may have realized he was moving on anyway, so let's try to squeeze more out of him before he goes.

"The reality is that this system of professional sports is set up to squeeze literally every last thing it can out of the horses. When that much money is at stake, for that many people, your personal health and well-being is going to take a back seat to their bottom line. This is why guys are on the sideline getting pain pills and injections, going to surgeries, getting cartilage and bones and ligaments rebuilt, trying every random, weird, experimental treatment under the sun just to get back out there and play. The human body was not naturally meant to bang up and down a court for eighty-two games. It just wasn’t. You have to break yourself in order to do that. You have to, in a sense, break nature."

Assay of diet for pyridoxine by microbiological methods gives a truer representation of “i’ve always loved reading. it came from my mother. reading was simply a nonnegotiable in my house. if you weren’t reading, you weren’t achieving. the other thing we read at home was the newspaper. this also came from my mom. she insisted on it. she made sure we were keeping ourselves educated. i learned to be interested in world affairs, business, culture, and media. i learned how stories were told and how media and journalism worked. we were well educated, well mannered, well taken care of, and critical thinkers.”

"on the first day of seventh grade i walked into my first-period classroom. we had been given our bell schedule the day before, and i was excited to sit down and get started on a new year....

but i knew something was off, because when i walked into the room, i noticed that all the other kids were white.

i had been placed in the honors track. i didn’t yet think a lot about why it was that the honors track meant all white students except for me.

the teacher stopped me almost immediately.

“i think you might be in the wrong classroom, dear,” she said.

“nope. right one.” i still wasn’t really aware of what was happening. obviously, i had read my schedule and knew which classroom i was supposed to go to. that’s just basic.

still, she seemed unconvinced.

“are you sure?”

“yes, i’m sure, ha-ha.”

this whole thing was silly. i was already headed for a seat, thinking this little interaction was over. but it wasn’t for her.

she followed behind me.

“can you show me your schedule, hon?” she said.

this time she seemed a little more forceful. it was then that i started to understand. i presented her the schedule i had crumpled in my hand. she looked it over for a moment.

“ah. ok,” she said quietly. “take your seat then.”

did i really get asked to show my papers?

the freedom to be unaware of racism simply doesn’t last long if you’re black."

and yes....

+ colleges do ruthlessly exploit amateur athletes while some coaches get 7-figure paychecks, the school rakes in the alumni donations and the sports tv media make a mint. they should be paid. if they don't make to the bigs, and very few do, they have been used and left broke.

+ the media are wolves. with 24/7 coverage and sports media full of hacks, who live off of, or even make up, rumors, and too many so-called "analysts," the media is a pain in the ass to athletes and annoying to some of us fans. many are simply jealous they don't make the money that these athletes do.

+ philly is a brutal town to play a sport in, any sport, because the fans are so nasty and well, they have the media as described above. as an example, iguodala mentions a long interview he did with sports illustrated. he says si got it right, but some in the philly media took some of his comments about a teammate out of context and made him look as if he was attacking his teammate. this got the philly fan base roiled up all over again over what was essentially a lie.

"the fans and press in philadelphia are like the fans and press nowhere else. and that’s a good thing. none of us could stand it if the whole country was like that."

+ the officiating was blatantly biased.....

"kevin durant was averaging eight or nine free throws a game in oklahoma city. in his first year with us, he averaged six. steph, over his career, all with the warriors, has averaged between four and five free throws per game, and i’ve watched him come into practice the next day with quarter-inch-deep gashes on his arms from plays that were not called. it’s hard to imagine a back-to-back mvp, unanimous the second time, only getting to the line a handful of times per game like that. most guys who average 30 points a game shoot way more free throws.

i recently had an assistant coach from another team text me after we played them. he and i went way back to my teenage years. he wanted to congratulate us on keeping our composure during the game. “what do you mean?” i asked. “our game plan,” he said, “is just to foul the shit out of you. we tell our guys every time-out, just foul the ball handler every time. we know they’re not going to call it.”

so we know that the scouting report on us for most teams is, essentially, rough them up. knock them around. they’re not going to get the calls.

even though this had been my sense all along, it was still surprising to hear it so obviously stated by someone else in the league. why would this even be the case? does the league feel like we’re too good? like we could just blow teams out, which would drive down viewership?"

some reality check....

"basketball is often for people who have no other choice. if you genuinely have other options, you wouldn’t go as far and face as much. you play for fun, but once it gets serious, once it becomes life-or-death, most people will, if they can, find something a little more stable and a little less critical to do with their lives."

and if you happen to follow pro basketball, you will know how the warriors franchise "signed off" on putting kevin durant into a play-off game where a resulting achilles injury may have have ruined his career. the franchise may have realized he was moving on anyway, so let's try to squeeze more out of him before he goes.

"the reality is that this system of professional sports is set up to squeeze literally every last thing it can out of the horses. when that much money is at stake, for that many people, your personal health and well-being is going to take a back seat to their bottom line. this is why guys are on the sideline getting pain pills and injections, going to surgeries, getting cartilage and bones and ligaments rebuilt, trying every random, weird, experimental treatment under the sun just to get back out there and play. the human body was not naturally meant to bang up and down a court for eighty-two games. it just wasn’t. you have to break yourself in order to do that. you have to, in a sense, break nature."
