Over the years, it’s widely known Golden State Warriors guard Andre Iguodala has some of the best hands in the NBA. Those around him say he’s not shy about letting you know. He believes he’s at least Top 5 all-time when it comes to stripping the ball.
“Part of Andre’s brilliance is this amazing combination of length, athleticism and brains. So it’s not just that he’s so bouncy and long. It’s just the fact that he understands when to reach in. Most guys who do that end up getting called for a lot of fouls, but Andre just recognizes the timing, the angles and just has an incredible knack for making that play,” Kerr told ClutchPoints.
