Andre Iguodala's Heart-Warming Quote On His Clutch Free Throws

It's rare that you hear an athlete say something profound or meaningful in a postgame interview with the TV sideline reporter. Andre Iguodala, though, said something that should make everyone smile after hitting the two big free throws to give the Philadelpha 76ers a 4-2 series victory over the Chicago Bulls.

You see, Iguodala has had a problem with clutch free throws this year. According to NBA.com's John Schuhmann, Iguodala had hit just seven of 18 free throws in what were deemed as "clutch" situations. However, this time, he stepped up and hit the two biggest free throws of his career.

How'd he do it? Here's what he told NBATV's Cheryl Miller.


"On the free throws, [teammate] Tony Battie gave me some advice," Iguodala said. "He said, 'Think of something you love when you're shooting free throws,' because I've been struggling all year. I thought of my son, and it was easy after that."

All together now: AWWWWWWWWWW.
