The Free Agent:
It shouldn’t come as any surprise, but it is nice once in a while to see a younger player thanking the veteran for their help.
Many rookies come into the NBA now and just think they own the league, but Thaddeus Young showed alot of class with his recent tweet about former teamate and friend Andre Iguodala:
Thad Young@yungsmoove2119h :
Best wishes to the big homie @mindofAI9 on his new chapter… Thanks for all you have done to help me grow as a player… #salute
While it certainly is the 76ers loss, hopefully it will be a big gain for the Nuggets. As a young team, Iguodala brings a veteran experience and a calming presence. Much like a did for a young Thad Young, hopefully he can push these young Nuggets in the right direction and make this team more then just a first round and done playoff team.

This happened late in the second quarter during the gold medal match between USA and Spain, in which, Andre Iguodala is baited by Rudy Fernandez. However, in the second GIF it looks like Iggy may have jabbed him….. Still, Rudy looked like he took a bullet. H/T SB Nation
