Andre Iguodala

Andre Iguodala isn’t impressed with Richard Sherman (OK, that’s putting it lightly)

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala is a huge 49ers fan. He took over the team’s official Twitter account during a preseason game, and teased Stephen Curry after the 49ers beat Curry’s favorite team last Sunday in Charlotte.

That probably explains these tweets, at least partially.

Based on the timing of Iguodala’s tweets, he was almost certainly referring to Richard Sherman’s postgame interview with Erin Andrews where he ripped Michael Crabtree:

Richard Sherman is a punk. Yes, he’s one of the best CB’s in the NFL, but you have to be a more gracious winner in those situations. Yes, he was emotional after that last play and we all know he dislikes Harbaugh and I guess Crabtree too, but c’mon man, don’t scream like a child in a postgame interview. Even Erin Andrews looked embarrassed.
I really hope the Broncos crush the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. I hope they win by 30! Screw the Seahawks!

Sherman made a good play on a poorly thrown ball.  Good for him.  I can see being excited in the moment, but his comments to Erin Andrews were appalling and his comments in the post game presser about Crabtree reveal a true lack of character.  Yet, fans will support him because he is one of theirs. – after all these years, the human race is still pretty tribal when push comes to shove.

The NFL should fine this idiot!!! After all, he is representing the league at that moment.  Kids are watching this game all over the country. By allowing this moron to speak like that on national TV is basically telling our youth that it is okay to be a disrespectful thug!

Come in guys… If Crab comes down with it, it’s an excellently thrown ball.
And Richard Sherman’s mouth can’t take anything away from the 9ers amazing run. Also, you know, people who act all crazy usually have a hard time in the end. Somebody should probably test his pee pretty soon too.

Come on Andre, those tweets are as over the top as Sherman was.
Hey, it’s Dr King’s Birthday, which reminds of that all heroes and society changers do not reside only in sports.

Sherman’s comments were not “heat of the battle”; they were carefully choreographed so that he’s now a National “story” and the talk of the SB …. just like when Joe Namath guaranteed the Jets would beat the Colts in SB III and when Hollywood Henderson made fun of Terry Bradshaw. He’s angling to be a TV commentator when his playing days are over. Completely contrived and manipulative. My girl Erin Andrews handled it perfectly “Back to you, Joe !”. I hope Manning sends Demarius Thomas on a crossing route and he knocks Mr big mouth into the 8th row. F’ing… Read more »

Sherman is mouthing off just because Kappy missed by inches for a perfect throw, instead gifting Sherman with the damned incentive to mouth off at Kappy and Crabtree.
Seeing Sherman like this, I can see the immaturity in him. Even Crabtree had to nod off at Sherman’s post-game rant.

This sorry mess is the culmination of all the woofing and taunting and showboating and planned (if not choreographed) celebrations that have been going on for years. It’s one thing for players to yap and otherwise behave like childish punks to each other on the field (and I’m not singling out any individual here — all the big name clowns do it at one time or another), but taking it right into the public eye in front of the camera during interviews and pressers where it can’t be missed is a new level of appalling behavior. Basically, I don’t really… Read more »

Wow, everyone on here are so soft its unbelievable. Do you know what game were playing? Its called football, a very physical sport and you think no one talks trash to one another or yall think everyone likes eachother? Gimme a break, this story is so blown up because why…because the media needs it. Who cares if he called crabtree out, so your telling me deion sanders never talked about himself? Please….just because sherman is a passionate man who doesnt change who he is on the field, you all hate a man because of what you see on tv? Get… Read more »

@thatkiddpj Look pal, it’s one thing to play tough on the field and jaw with your opponent, but calling out one’s opponent after the game crosses the line of good sportsmanship and professionalism.  Just about any rational person knows this.

The difference between Sherman and Sanders is that Sanders didn’t call out other guys by name.  He was a showboat and obnoxious but even he knew the difference between being a good sport and being an obnoxious jerk.

As far as children watching the game – mine was and I was able to use Sherman as an example of what not to do.

What kind of coaching-teaching did Sherman get in college?!?!?
Who the Hell was his coach?!?!?
WHOOPS! It was Harbough. LOL

Calling him a thug because he went overboard in a interview after an intense football game is very judgemental…it may have been distasteful and classless but that’s it. He’s actually a brilliant guy…..you don’t know him so u probably shouldn’t call him a thug.

BASG ……but back on point regarding post-game -coming off the field incidents’ -like when Sherman’s happened last week …….
Isn’t CoachJim Harbough the holder of two records for most controversial post game incidents?
I say Coach Jim Schwartz of the Lions and Coach Carrol when at USC would concur with me- that’s “my deal.”

P, the fact that Harbaugh had been involved in these situations doesn’t mean he caused them. And if he did cause them, that does not mean he was out of line. Since USC was busted right after C got out of dodge, it seems simple to infer that H’s excessive two point conversion was in reaction to that. I mean, those things are usually open secrets, and if you care about your players, it’s going to piss you off and you’re going to respond. Think about it, man. The two coaches H has had public beef with coach the two… Read more »

So, the question is not whether or not an “incident” takes place, but how you conduct yourself. Schwartz chasing after H like a yippy little dog falls into the “don’t do this” category. Shaking someone’s hand too hard falls into the “whatever” category. Punching Jim Kelly…?

paperback writer “Back on point”? Your original point sounded like this: the reason Sherman does these things is because Harbaugh taught him to act that way.  I don’t understand how you’d come to that conclusion. Sherman’s high school coach said he was like T.O. before he went to Stanford. And if you blame Sherman’s behavior on Harbaugh, you also need to give credit to Harbaugh for guys who never act like jackasses (like Luck).  Harbaugh has never looked into a camera and insulted an opposing player or coach after a game. Jim Schwartz (not exactly known as a pleasant guy) took… Read more »

BASG: Sorry you missed – what I thought was obvious irony in my original short post – guess lol in CAPS was missed. You stated: ” your original point sounded like this: the reason Sherman does these things is because Harbough taught him to act that way.” Well that’s not only paraphrasing on steroids, but that’s outright mind-reading – ( and quite inaccurate) I then stated in another post that Harbough was involved in 2 infamous post-game handshakes – there I AM INSINUATING Coach Jim must bring out something fierce in the other coaches. I do remember the Schwartz backslapping… Read more »

[&#8230 ;] Golden State basketball player Andre Iguodala added injury to the insults when he tweeted, “N***ardomn is like roaches…” and “We just got set back 500 years….”  Aside from the obvious absurdity in Iguodala’s “set back 500 years” proclamation, there’s an even greater issue here.  In Ridley-esque fashion, Iguodala helped give credence to the idea that certain people who “set the race back” can be called the n-word.
