The Warriors' Andre Iguodala underwent a year-end physical that showed right knee tendinitis and left hip soreness, but he won't need surgery at this time, according to a team spokesman. Iguodala's physical included an MRI exam as he played through the knee tendinitis in the playoffs that caused him to miss six games in his first season with the Warriors after signing a four-year, $48 million contract. Rest during the offseason and a possible injection are in the plans for the 30-year-old Iguodala, who also missed 12 games because of a left hamstring strain that bothered him for months.

"(Jackson) did an excellent job of subbing on the fly," said small forward Andre Iguodala, who fouled out and played only 20 minutes, getting his fourth foul midway through the second quarter. "I heard somebody try to say a knock (against Jackson) is X's and O's or rotations, but tonight it was almost perfect. ... The second unit was really good for us, especially in that second quarter. We won that second quarter. You'd think (the second unit would) play a lot in the second half, but (Jackson) saw something he really liked and it got us going in the third." USA Today Sports

Bob Myers: So it wasn’t just adding Iguodala, it was adding Iguodala along with clearing up a lot of salary on our books that really made us believe the deal was worth it from our side. If somebody wanted to compartmentalize the deal, you’d say one pick was for Iguodala and one pick was to get off $24 million. Would we do that in a bubble? Yeah, we felt like that was worth it, because it wasn’t just two first-round picks for Iguodala. We would have been looking at a team, should we not have done anything and stood pat, likely the same team coming back at the five starter spots, but also without Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry, who were huge in regards to our success last year. That likely would have set us back and we didn’t really want to take a step back after having some success for an organization that hadn’t had any in so long. We wanted to try to not just maintain, but take a small step forward. That was the motivation behind the deal and moving the picks. You never know how things could have worked out, you never know in any deal. Our thought at the time when we did it and constructed it was that it was worth it. Basketball Insiders

Q: Brandon (Foster City, CA) - I liked the feature on you in Grantland. Just wanted to know how you feel being compared to Scottie Pippen and how much his game influenced you growing up. Thanks… Andre Iguodala: I’ve been a Scottie Pippen fan since growing up being from Illinois. I was also the tallest player on the court playing point guard until my senior year of high school, so I’ve had the comparison made a lot. Mind of AI9

Known as one of the best all-around basketball players in the NBA, Golden State Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala is now demonstrating his versatility off the court, particularly in the arena of real estate. After shelling out $1.84 million on a posh Mediterranean home in the hills of Berkeley earlier this year, Iguodala is now looking to get into the rental game. The All-Star wing is asking $6,700 a month to rent his 4,000-square-foot home in Sherman Oaks, CA, a neighborhood of Los Angeles. Built in 2008, the gated five-bedroom home features hardwood flooring, a chef’s kitchen and a master suite with a walk-in closet, patio access and a soaking tub and shower. Outside, the grounds offer ideal space for entertaining with a plus-sized patio, rolling green lawns and the quintessential baller amenity: a basketball hoop. Records show the home last changed hands in 2008 for $1.05 million. Realtor

No one understands the value of Iguodala more than those who have coached him before. Start with George Karl, who had Iguodala last year in Denver, where Iguodala helped the Nuggets to 57 wins. It was during last postseason that the Warriors knocked off the Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs, sparking Iguodala—who was to be a free agent—to consider Golden State as a potential destination. He signed on July 5. “When that deal went down, I said to myself, there’s probably not a better team for Andre than Golden State as far as his personality,” Karl said. “Andre loves the team to play as a team, he is a team guy, he is unselfish. The only thing he has had problems with in his career has been when teams want him to score 20 points a game. Golden State doesn’t need him to score 20 points. They need him to do what he does at a high level.” Sporting News
