Andre Iguodala issued a statement to Sixers fans and the city of Philadelphia as his Denver Nuggets get ready to play his old team tonight:

Philly—

I would like to take the time to thank you and all your devoted sports fans for the passion, loyalty and spirit that you gave to me during my eight seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Thanks as well to the 76ers organization, who gave me the opportunity to fulfill my lifelong dream of playing in the NBA and provided me with a great front office of dedicated people to work with. I would also like to thank all the coaches, trainers and teammates that I was blessed to compete along side and build lasting relationships with here.

Tonight I begin a new chapter in my career but I will always share my accomplishments with the city and the organization and I thank you both for all that you have done for me.

    Very classy. Too often we forget that most athletes are jerks, they forgot what it was like to be a fan. This guy realized it’s not real hate, it’s sports hate. Big dif, good luck Andre!
