Andre Iguodala not optimistic about next season. Not at all.
LeBron James is optimistic about the chances of there being a next season.
Andre Iguodala is the ying to that yang.
The Sixers forward spoke with CSNPhilly.com and sounded a more realistic tone.
It’s hard to be optimistic when all we’ve seen so far is posturing and legal moves, not negotiations. Right now there is still no real pressure on either side to compromise and reach a deal. That starts to change next month — by the middle of September there will be preseason games that will be cancelled and the start of the season will be at risk. As with the NFL, expect that to put real pressure on both sides to negotiate in earnest.
But that doesn’t mean they’ll reach a deal like the NFL. Maybe they can get to one in October, but a lot more people feel pessimistic like Iguodala than they do optimistic like LeBron.
