Andre Iguodala and team USA defeated Iran today 88-51 to clinch a top seed in the next round of the FIBA World Basketball Championships in Athens, Greece. Andre said he was happy with the way the team was playing, but stressed the need for better communication on defense.â†µ
I think in the second half we were communicating a little bit better on the defensive end. If I had one concern with our team, it’s communication defensively. We got some quiet guys who in their nature it’s to be quiet, but defensively you got to talk. Everybody has to be like five guys on one string, rotations, pick and rolls … a lot of teams have tried to hurt us with that.â†µ
It’s good to hear any Sixer preaching defense… but it’s especially nice to hear it from their leader and best defensive player.
