Have you gotten a chance to reach out to any of your new teammates and have you been able to work with them? What excites you most about the city of Houston? David Nwaba: “Right now, I haven’t seen too many of my teammates. I’ve run into PJ Tucker, Eric Gordon. Not too many guys I’ve run into right now but I’m sure they’re doing their own things, just trying to get their body right. doing the little things to keep their body in shape and to stay in shape and that’s what I’m trying to do as well. I’m just focused on just getting my body right. And just being ready for this season.”
What do you mean ‘dumbed down the game’? Andre Iguodala: Well as you see in the bubble, there’s more fouls called than ever. They want high scores. I think more guys are put in a box. It’s catch and shoot 3s, or catch-and-drive real hard to the basket and dunk finish. The little nuances of the game, gamesmanship, it’s not as appreciated or it’s not as sought after or valued as much. I know a lot of guys in the league, like a Jrue Holiday (from New Orleans) or an Eric Gordon (from Houston), they have so much to their game, but the way the game is played now, they’ve taken that out of their games because they said, ‘All right, we want you to shoot 3s. We want you to defend, put your head down and drive.’ And those are two prime examples, where guys are like, ‘Man, this guy was a monster to deal with but the way the game has changed you’re limiting a lot of guys. That’s just the evolution of the game and where it’s going. I think it’ll come back eventually, but like I said, seeing those things I know my value because of my IQ or even at the next level, if I can get to a front office or head a team.
