Andre Iguodala hates being called "Iggy" 

Post#1 » by Iversean » Fri Jul 19, 2013 6:25 am

Dan Martinez @dmar

Asked @andre what he wanted to be called. He smiled & said, "call me anything you want... just not Iggy." #DubNation, take note.

How do you post tweets on RealGM?? I see the tweet button and tried but to no avail.

I've known this since his Sixer days, but I still see people referring to him as Iggy. Let's do him a favor and come up with a new nickname for him. If anybody else has any other suggestions please feel free to chime in.

He states that he doesn't mind The Other A.I.
Also finishes with that he just wants to be "Dre".

I usually just call players by their first or last name, depending on which is more unique/easily identifiable.

Curry, Klay, Harrison, Lee, Bogut, Draymond, Iguodala, etc.

Loved Cap 2, but would have loved it more if they had replaced Falcon with Black Panther. OK...Falcon can fly. I get that BP is like Batman.

Fans tend to use short nicknames becase they don't want to have to type the complete name out on blogs, hence Iggy. Dre or even AI would work for me (we know it's not Allen Iverson we're referring to). I don't think Iverson has copyrighted those initials. You can leave out "the other".
