He cites Michael Jordan as the player he looked up to.
Iguodala initially signed a National Letter of Intent to play at Arkansas. He had narrowed down his list of desired schools to two: Kansas or Arkansas. Andre was enticed by Arkansas’s 1–3 system, which would have allowed him to run the point occasionally. One of the determining factors for Iguodala was the commitment of Hassan Adams, whom Andre had played with the Jordan Brand Classic in high school.
