Golden State Warriors veteran Andre Iguodala made his long-awaited season debut in Saturday’s game against the Orlando Magic, playing 12 minutes in the team’s disappointing 115-111 loss.
The 38-year-old had previously announced his comeback on the Point Forward podcast. “Well, it’s Point Forward Friday,” Iguodala said, speaking with co-host Evan Turner. “We got twenty-four hours ’til I step on the court, man. It’s a go.”
Iguodala went on to say, “hope the fan base is excited. I’m a little nervous, but actually, I’m also excited. I try to play it cool, calm and collected all the time, but I’m excited to get there on the court. It’s finally happened. A lot of folks have been asking. Patience is a virtue, and now we’re here.”
With four championship rings and a finals MVP trophy, Andre Iguodala is a welcome sight for Steve Kerr and his depleted roster despite Saturday’s loss.
