Video: Warriors’ Andre Iguodala takes flight for spectacular dunk vs. Knicks

Andre Iguodala

Who said Andre Iguodala was washed up?

The Golden State Warriors wing showed that he still has plenty left in the tank against the New York Knicks on Tuesday night, flashing a double-clutch, one-handed dunk that sent the Warriors bench and the Oracle Arena crowd into a frenzy.

Iguodala is having the least productive season of his career.

Going into Tuesday evening, Iguodala was averaging 5.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and three assists over 23.3 minutes per game while shooting 45.1 percent from the floor, 36.5 percent from three-point range and 64.7 percent from the free-throw line.

Iguodala, who turns 35 later this month, is clearly not even close to the player he once was, but he is still an integral piece to what the Warriors do on both ends of the floor, as evidenced by his plus-1.9 net rating on the year.

The Springfield, Il. native is now in his sixth year with Golden State after coming over from the Denver Nuggets in a sign-and-trade during the summer of 2013.

Iguodala has played a critical role in the Dubs winning three championships over the last four years, even winning a Finals MVP during the Warriors’ six-game victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2015 NBA Finals.

He played his collegiate basketball at the University of Arizona and was originally selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the ninth overall pick of the 2004 NBA Draft.

Iguodala proceeded to spend the first eight years of his career with the 76ers, making one All-Star team. He was then traded to the Nuggets in a three-way trade that brought Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia during the summer of 2012.
