Andre Iguodala explains faking breaking his arm after foul (video)

After being fouled in Game 4, Andre Iguodala grabbed his arm as if it were broken – while rolling his eyes and laughing.

What was up with that?

Iguodala:

It’s more that goes into the game than people realize. Like not being able to sleep and then your normal routine. You can’t take naps. It’s like everything – every emotion, every thought, everything, physical, mental, psychological – everything is thrown into the game.
It’s just so – my brain is like fried.  But it’s like we understand the commitment and sacrifice we have to make.

So, it was just a perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy the moment.

As then soon as you get back to the line to shoot the free throws, you’re right back into just grinding, grinding, grinding, trying to get a win.

That is an explanation, but it doesn’t illuminate much about what he actually meant by grabbing his arm. This sounds a bit like LeBron’s secret motivation.

Speaking of LeBron, do you think Iguodala might have been mocking someone – maybe someone in particular?
