Andre Iguodala’s family members were reluctant card game participants.

He is, after all, the father who used a casual family game night of Uno to invoke Sun Tzu’s military teachings in “The Art of War.”

“I know what color he has in his hand,” Iguodala, the Miami Heat veteran, said as he recalled a recent game. “I know what color she has Stitched Miami Heat Jerseys in her hand. I know what card she’s about to throw in.”

Afterward, he told his 13-year-old son, Andre II, that his cutthroat mentality had little to do with winning.

“I’ve learned to pick up on my surroundings,” Iguodala said. “That’s something I’ve taught him and that I try to teach him. ‘When you’re Cheap Bruce Bowen Jersey watching me play, see how I’m playing, knowing your opponent.’ It’s like ‘The Art of War’ and giving him a few tactics on just seeing life a certain way, where you’re ultra alert and you try to use those things to your advantage. Data is the key.”

That philosophy has been vital for the 36-year-old Iguodala. Players his age make it this far only by countering the loss of young legs with the wisdom of miles traveled.

“There’s no such thing as having enough knowledge,” Iguodala said.

He plays as though he has already witnessed a sequence, arriving with a quick, solid poke of a ball on defense or delivering Cheap Duncan Robinson Jersey a pass before a teammate steps into the previously unoccupied space, tendencies learned through a lifetime of studying the game.

He credits that knack to playing for hours a day growing up, watching film as a young player, and witnessing up close the work of the league’s defensive stalwarts of that era, players like Scottie Pippen, Bruce Bowen and Metta World Peace.

“From there, you just store the information, learning the trends of the league,” Iguodala said. “Most teams run the same exact plays, so you know where the ball is going before it gets there.”

The mind-set extends beyond the basketball court to entrepreneurial ventures in technology and e-commerce, worlds he started exploring before his 2013 trade to the Golden State Warriors solidified his link to Silicon Valley.

“The folks that follow the tech space, they all know the data is king and we all know the importance of data,” Iguodala said. “And not just the importance of data, but how you use it and how you can use it to expand Cheap Andre Iguodala Jersey and build your company.”

When this year dawned, all data on the basketball side suggested that Iguodala would not figure in the N.B.A. postseason for the first time in a long while.

The Warriors traded him to the Memphis Grizzlies last off-season, after he had played in five consecutive N.B.A. finals, earning the finals’ Most Valuable Player Award in 2015. The trade created a standoff in which Iguodala and Memphis agreed that he would not report to the organization as the Grizzlies found a future home for him.

For a while, Iguodala appeared more often at the enterprise software company Zuora, where he serves as a board adviser, than on any N.B.A. radar.

“A lot of athletes that do this will stay on what we call the consumer side, the well-known brands, Apple, Instagram,” said Tien Tzuo, Zuora’s chief executive. “I work in more of a space of business applications, business software. It’s not as well known. And he just showed an incredibly strong interest in Cheap Jae Crowder Jersey that. It’s not something that you might approach as a layman.”

The Heat acquired Iguodala in a three-team trade in February and, as he regained his footing, the coronavirus pandemic suspended the season indefinitely.

Iguodala, the first vice president of the National Basketball Players Association, helped coordinate the season’s restart in a bubble environment at Walt Disney World near Orlando, Fla., collaborating on protocols for a return and fielding phone calls from concerned players.

Some voiced hesitation, worried that resuming play would distract from calls for social justice after the police killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.

The N.B.A.’s return featured Black Lives Matter wording near center court, and many players wore league-sanctioned messaging on the back of their jerseys.

“You do see the sports leagues taking more of a stance,” said Iguodala, who chose to have “Group Economics” on the back of his jersey instead of his last name. Iguodala added that for leagues with a majority-Black work force, like the N.B.A.: “I think there’s a moral compass there. And so you have to take some type of stance. And it’s not really a political stance — it’s a human stance.”

Then, in August, Iguodala became one of the most vocal players during a series of meetings after the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis.

The players initiated a work stoppage of playoff games until the league’s franchise owners agreed to specific commitments, including searching for ways to provide voting access to underrepresented communities.

“How you get so many African-American athletes of that wealth to be able to come out stronger as a whole, as a union, that was a beautiful thing, regardless of what people may have thought would happen,” Iguodala said. “Just seeing all of us being able to have dialogue, whether we agreed or we disagreed with one another, that was huge.”

Iguodala ended the season in his sixth consecutive finals, where Miami lost to the Lakers in six games.

“The bubble was the perfect environment for us, because of how they mentally train the guys to take on any challenge,” Iguodala said. “We were just ready for it, and we made the most of it.”

Iguodala is also making the most of his off-court pursuits. He was an early investor in Zoom, the platform he used to conduct the interview for this article. He joined Comcast Ventures’ Catalyst Fund as a venture partner.

His goal is to continue educating, creating access for and investing in minorities and marginalized communities. In other words, backing up the message he wore on the back of his jersey.

“Professional athletes have too much downtime,” Iguodala said. “That’s how they get in trouble. What I’ve been able to do is take that time and find something that’s purposeful, and it’s a passion, something I really enjoy, and not just monetize it, but also help bring my cohorts into the space with me and help them learn as well.”

Iguodala and Stephen Curry joined with Bloomberg L.P. in 2017 to create the annual Players Technology Summit, a forum to link athletes with executives in technology and venture capitalism.

“People don’t realize the potential athletes have to learn, given the fact that they’ve been professionals in this one discipline for such a long time, from basically childhood,” said Rudy-Cline Thomas, the founder of the venture capital firm Mastry and Iguodala’s longtime business partner. “The potential for learning something outside of that is extremely high.”

As Iguodala’s basketball career winds down — “sooner rather than later” he’ll be able to focus on other things, he said — he wants to make sure other players recognize their value on and off the court.

“We always talk about player health physically and mentally, but ultimately that No. 1 agenda is the dollars and how much can we bring in,” Iguodala said.

Iguodala pointed to the recent sale of the Utah Jazz to Ryan Smith, the chief executive of Qualtrics, for $1.66 billion. The franchise’s previous sale was for $8 million in 1985, when the auto dealer Larry H. Miller bought 50 percent. He later bought the rest of the franchise for $14 million.

“Any player in the history of playing for the Jazz organization — John Stockton, Karl Malone — did any of them benefit from that value increase?” Iguodala said. “Did any of them have skin in the game? No.”

Just 50 days separated the end of the N.B.A. finals from the start of training camp last week. The N.B.A. faced a significant financial loss if it waited until the next calendar year.

“I think players are realizing that we have to stand a little bit more firm with our negotiations, in terms of who’s bearing the brunt of the risk when we’re put in these tough situations,” Iguodala said. “You’re asking us to put our bodies on the line and take more of a financial risk.”

Iguodala hopes that players collectively and individually realize their worth.

Careers don’t last forever.

For now, Iguodala’s continues, the data stored from last season’s winding road taken into a new one.

Since 2018, Cheap Anthony Carter Jersey has served as the player development coach for the Miami Heat. But his ties to the team go back more than two decades, when he began his NBA career with the Heat in 1999. In between, he played a role in changing the franchise’s fortunes forever.

No, Carter wasn’t a superstar in Miami like Cheap Dwyane Wade Jersey and Cheap LeBron James Jersey were. But without him, the Heat may not have three championships today.

Let’s hop back to the 2002-03 season. Carter, who was 27 years old at the time, wanted to exercise his player option to stay in Miami. Carter averaged 4.1 points while shooting an abysmal 35.6% from the field (and zero percent from three) the season before.

The option, worth $4.1 million, was an obvious choice. There was only one problem: Carter’s agent, Bill Duffy, missed the June 30 deadline to tell the Heat Carter planned to return.

Instead of getting his $4.1 million, Carter became a free agent. He signed a minimum contract with the San Antonio Spurs, worth about $750,000. On the plus side, Carter only played in five games before the Spurs waived him – a $150,000 per game salary is pretty good.

Still, Carter missed out on a bigger payday. To make things right, Duffy offered Carter $3 million from his own pocket. The two agreed to a repayment schedule, and Duffy delivered the final payment at the end of 2020.

UPDATE: Jan. 12, 5:36 p.m. — The Heat have ruled Leonard out, while Olynyk and Vincent are available. So they’ll have the required 8 players to field a team for Tuesday’s game vs. the Sixers.

The Miami Heat have placed 8 players into health and safety protocols, including Cheap Jimmy Butler Jersey Cheap Bam Adebayo Jersey and Cheap Avery Bradley Jersey. Here’s the full list of players who will be unavailable for Tuesday’s game vs. the Philadelphia 76ers courtesy of Ira Winderman:

Out for Heat for protocols:
Adebayo
Butler
Bradley
Dragic
Harkless
Haslem
Nunn
Okpala

— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) January 11, 2021
So that leaves the Heat with Cheap Tyler Herro Jersey, Cheap Precious Achiuwa Jersey, Cheap Andre Iguodala Jersey, Cheap Duncan Robinson Jersey, Cheap Chris Silva Jersey and Cheap Max Strus Jersey as players who will be available. Cheap Kelly Olynyk Jersey, Cheap Meyers Leonard Jersey and Cheap Gabe Vincent Jersey are considered questionable, so two of those three would need to be available in order for this game to be played.

Meanwhile, the Sixers will be without Seth Curry (covid-19) and Ben Simmons (knee) on Monday vs. the Atlanta Hawks. Tobias Harris, Shake Milton and Matisse Thybulle are also expected to be out Monday with Joel Embiid listed as probable.

Despite the blunder, Carter has remained on good terms with Duffy, saying he understood that sometimes things happen. And Duffy is still an agent today, representing several NBA players, including Luka Doncic, Cheap Goran Dragic Jersey, and Rajon Rondo. In fact, he likely benefited from his act, with other players and coaches seeing him trying to fix things.

With Carter no longer on Miami’s books, Heat president Pat Riley suddenly had extra cap space. He used it to sign Lamar Odom away from the Los Angeles Clippers. The following season, in 2004, Odom was traded — along with Cheap Caron Butler Jersey and Cheap Brian Grant Jersey – to the Los Angeles Lakers for Shaquille O’Neal.

Two years after that trade, O’Neal and Wade led the Heat to its first championship in franchise history. And if you support the butterfly effect, James may have never signed with the Heat in 2010 if they hadn’t won a title a few years earlier.

It’s certainly an interesting hypothetical to consider. And it took almost 20 years, but Carter finally got his money.

MIAMI — — Erik Spoelstra remained perfect on Christmas, and a record-tying show from Cheap Duncan Robinson Jersey helped him stay that way.

Robinson made seven 3-pointers — tying the Christmas single-game mark — and scored 23 points, helping the Heat beat the New Orleans Pelicans 111-98 to start the NBA’s holiday quintupleheader Friday.

“It’s super special to play in Christmas,” Robinson said. “I certainly don’t take it for granted.”

Cheap Goran Dragic Jersey scored 18 points, Cheap Bam Adebayo Jersey had 17 and Cheap Avery Bradley Jersey finished with 12 for Miami, and Spoelstra improved his Christmas record as Heat coach to 8-0.

“I wasn’t even aware of that,” Spoelstra said. “Just shows you that we’ve had some really good teams here and teams that have had the opportunity to play on Christmas.”

Cheap Precious Achiuwa Jersey and Cheap Tyler Herro Jersey each scored 11 for Miami, which lost Cheap Jimmy Butler Jersey at halftime with right ankle stiffness.

Zion Williamson had 32 points and 14 rebounds in 38 minutes for New Orleans — the rebounds and minutes both being career highs. Brandon Ingram finished with 28 points.

But the Pelicans shot 40% to Miami’s 51%.

“We made some defensive mistakes that we shouldn’t have,” said Josh Hart, who scored 12 for New Orleans. “Lack of communication. We’ve got to communicate better on the defensive end.”

Robinson’s seven 3s tied the Christmas mark Ingram set last year.

“The guy is a great, great shooter. He’s going to have nights like that,” Pelicans coach Stan Van Gundy said. “But at least three of them were ones where we could have done a better job.”

JJ Redick’s 3-pointer with 7:43 left cut Miami’s lead to 91-85 and came during a stretch when the Heat went five minutes without a field goal. But the Pelicans got no closer.

The Heat restored order by scoring 11 of the game’s next 13 points, and when Achiuwa — the rookie who had strong defensive minutes — forced Williamson into a turnover with 3:55 left, the entire Miami bench rose in celebration.

“We knew they would make a run, but we stayed composed,” Dragic said.

New Orleans led 17-9 midway through the opening quarter — and got outscored 52-21 by Miami over the next 13½ minutes, with the Heat hitting nine of their 13 first-half 3s in that span on the way to a 23-point lead.

The Pelicans chipped away, getting within 66-53 at the half and 88-79 after three. But New Orleans shot only 30% in the final quarter and Ingram went scoreless in those 12 minutes after playing the entire third period.

Van Gundy lamented playing Ingram so much in the third.

“Probably not optimal play-calling on my part, either,” Van Gundy said.

TIP-INS

Pelicans: Williamson’s previous career high was 34 minutes. … Redick fouled out for the second time in 898 career regular-season games, and missed six of his seven shots. … The Pelicans are now 1/3 on Christmas.

Heat: Cheap Andre Iguodala Jersey started the second half for Butler. … Miami improved to 11-2 on Christmas. It hadn’t played on the holiday since beating New Orleans in 2015, and hasn’t lost on Dec. 25 since 2007.

SEASON’S GREETINGS

Heat forward Moe Harkless this week helped pay rent for about 50 New York families in dire economic circumstances this holiday season, plus covered lost wages and other essential expenses. “Means the world to me,” Harkless said.

COMING HOME

Veteran ref John Goble was crew chief and got to be home for Christmas; he’s a Miami native. Marc Davis (lives in Chicago, crew chief Friday in Milwaukee) and John Goble (lives in Connecticut, crew chief Friday in Boston) also got to work near home for Christmas.

UP NEXT

Pelicans: Host San Antonio on Sunday.

Heat: Host Milwaukee on Tuesday.
