Video: Warriors’ Andre Iguodala shows springs in alley-oop connection with Draymond Green
Check out the clip below as posted by Dime. Iguodala, 34-years-old, effortlessly rose up, caught the ball with one hand and slammed it down. Given the surprising finish, one would expect the Warriors bench to explode out of their seats. But their celebration was surprisingly watered-down. Iguodala flushing down the ball is not a new sight to them.
Andre Iguodala still has CRAZY bounce ✈️

The clip reminds us a young Iguodala — particularly in his days as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers where he was regarded as a human highlight reel. Who could forget his classic Slam Dunk Contest duel with Nate Robinson? And the alley-oops he received from the 76ers icon, Allen Iverson?
Though his slam dunking days are over, Iguodala still manages to show off once in a while. Now, he’s seen as one of the most intelligent basketball players out there. And coupled with his length and good hands, he’s probably one of the best defenders on the Warriors roster. Head coach Steve Kerr has often compared him to Scottie Pippen — regarded as one of the best perimeter defenders of all-time.
