DENVER - Seven months removed from the trade that sent him to Denver, Andre Iguodala still has nothing but good things to say about his former 76ers teammates. "I try to look forward," said Iguodala, who was sent to Denver in the four-team trade that brought injured center Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia. "I don't live with regrets. I still talk to the guys in Philly. But we talk mostly about things outside of basketball. I talk to Jrue [Holiday] about getting married. . . . And I talk with Evan [Turner]

Andre Iguodala tried to remain stoic about his much anticipated return to face his former 76ers team in Wednesday's opener at the Wells Fargo Center against the Denver Nuggets. Yet while speaking to reporters following this morning's shootaround, Iguodala alternated between being nostalgic and concentrating on the matter at hand. "I am trying to figure out where we are as a team, and really there is too much going on in my mind to think about it," he said about his comeback. Yet before coming, he posted a note on his personal website  thanking the Sixers fans and the organization with which he spent his first eight NBA seasons.

This was not the successful return to Philadelphia that Andre Iguodala might have envisioned when he was dealt by the 76ers to Denver in August in a four-team blockbuster. Not only did he struggle to find his way on offense but so did his teammates during Wednesday's 84-75 loss to the Sixers in the NBA opener for both teams at the Wells Fargo Center. Iguodala had 11 points, shooting 5 of 13 from the field, missing all four three-pointers, and shooting 1 for 3 from the line. He had four rebounds, four assists, two steals, four turnovers, and one blocked shot.

With the keystone - Elton Brand - locked in as the 76ers' power forward for the next five years, attention has turned to the futures of Andre Iguodala and Lou Williams, both restricted free agents and both integral pieces of last season's playoff team. On Sunday, Brand said he had been assured by the team's management that the Sixers would match any offer made to Iguodala, a guard-forward who last season averaged 19.9 points per game. Yesterday, Williams' agent, Merle Scott, said that although a number of teams have shown interest in his client, none has made a formal offer, and both parties - Williams and the Sixers - intend to make a deal that keeps the guard in Philadelphia.

The 76ers traded Andre Iguodala to Denver in the middle of the Summer Olympics as part of the massive four-team trade that landed the Sixers center Andrew Bynum and shooting guard Jason Richardson. On Wednesday, Iguodala and the Nuggets are scheduled to open the regular season at the Wells Fargo Center. "I really haven't thought about" returning to Philadelphia, Iguodala told Ben Hochman of the Denver Post on Monday. "I'm really trying to focus on what I can control, and that's our mind-set.

Andre Iguodala is a first-time all-star, a selection in which winning trumped individual scoring statistics. The Sixers are 18-8 and entered Thursday as the No. 3 team in the Eastern Conference. Iguodala, 28, was among the seven Eastern Conference reserves named Thursday night. The NBA All-Star Game is scheduled for Feb. 26 in Orlando. Last week, the starters - selected by the fans - were announced. The Eastern Conference head coaches picked the reserves. The coaches had to select two guards, two forwards, a center, and two wild cards; they could not vote for their own players.

For too much of last night's 91-87 victory by the 76ers at the Wachovia Center, the Memphis Grizzlies hung around like a bad house guest: unwelcomed and oblivious. A four-quarter tussle was not what the 76ers (27-24) had planned for their final game before the all-star break, their last contest in a seven-game homestand. The Sixers wanted to literally run Memphis from the court. But there were the Grizzlies (15-37), with their second-leading scorer, Rudy Gay, in street clothes, ahead by three points with only a handful of possessions left.

About one hour and 15 minutes before officially starting his NBA career last night, Andre Iguodala sat by his locker munching grapes, apparently oblivious to the enormity of the event. The frazzled nerves that are supposed to accompany rookies before their first NBA game weren't apparent. The 76ers' first-round draft choice, talked calmly before the game, insisting he was ready. Then he went out and backed up that assertion. Iguodala enjoyed a scintillating first quarter during an improbable 98-95 win over the Boston Celtics at the FleetCenter.

A riddle from the road: Who is the only member of the 76ers to start every one of the team's 27 games this season? Hint: His initials are A.I. Gotcha. It's not Allen Iverson. It's Andre Iguodala, the 20-year-old rookie who, instead of taking on a third year of college basketball at Arizona, is getting a crash course in the NBA while nightly taking on the opponent's best player at the defensive end. Iguodala, who ranks second on the team to Iverson in minutes played, has found himself matched up against some of the NBA's best, including Boston's Paul Pierce, Houston's Tracy McGrady, Seattle's Ray Allen, Orlando's Grant Hill and Denver's Carmelo Anthony.

Andre Iguodala returned to the court for the first time in more than two weeks, but the key question is whether the 76ers swingman will be able to stay. Iguodala said he went through about half of Monday's practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, including a 12-minute full-court session. It was his first action since playing 40 minutes in a 95-89 win at Denver on Dec. 26. In that game, Iguodala had nine points, eight rebounds and five assists. Iguodala has been sidelined with Achilles tendinitis for 12 games this season - or twice as many as he missed in his first six seasons in the league.

STEPHEN CURRY may look angelic, but to the rest of the NBA, he is Satan in sneakers. He can score off the dribble, coming off a pick, in transition or thread a pass to a teammate like a snake flicks its tongue. On Saturday, he makes his annual visit to the Wells Fargo Center. So here's a closer look at Curry, who is on his way to a second consecutive MVP Award, a second consecutive NBA championship, his first scoring title and inevitable comparison's to some of the greats to ever play the game.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Andre Iguodala is wary talking about Philadelphia. Being honest has bitten him in the past. "That's why I get booed all the time when I go there," Iguodala said, referring to interviews he has given over the years. His initial reaction to Philly-specific questions is to joke about lying. "I'll lie in every answer I give you," he said through laughter. But Iguodala isn't a liar. He is carefully honest, a perfectionist who displays great humility, and like many others who have come and gone through the 76ers locker room, he is enjoying success elsewhere.

WHAT LUCK. A day after the Sixers secured abject failure for two more seasons, there stood owner Josh Harris in the hallways of the Wells Fargo Center. As always, Harris was willing to offer a few candid not-for-publication observations concerning the Sixers' long-range plan. Suffice it to say Harris, a billionaire hedge-fund savant, was energized by the potential long-term return of investment in injured center Joel Embiid and young Croatian star Dario Saric - neither of whom will be of much real use until 2016.

The boos were predictable, and they were as loud and long as you'd expect, and they began with 3 minutes, 54 seconds left in the first quarter - the instant Andrew Bynum lifted all 7 feet and 285 pounds of himself off his chair along the Cleveland Cavaliers' sideline and made for the scorer's table. The boos were cathartic, because Andrew Bynum was supposed to have been some kind of savior last season for the Sixers. Andrew Bynum, acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers in a thunderclap trade involving four teams.

I UNDERSTAND this thing about "picking your poison," but it is a known fact that some poisons are a bit more lethal than others. In nature, for example, the venom of the beaked sea snake is considered to have the fifth-deadliest poison in the world. But the skin of the tiny dart frog contains about 100 toxins and is considered deadlier. So in basketball, if points in the paint are strychnine, then the three-point shot is potassium cyanide. Both are going to kill you if ingest enough, but one is a more efficient than the other.

The 76ers team that people expected to see this season finally surfaced Monday night. The Sixers struggled from the field and were flat-out overmatched against the Golden State Warriors, who cruised to a 110-90 victory in front of 11,089 at the Wells Fargo Center. But perhaps the biggest blow for the Sixers (3-1) was the inability to stop Andre Iguodala. The former Sixer made a career-high seven three-pointers on 11 attempts en route to 32 points. Twenty-seven of his points came before intermission.

A FORMER FRIEND and teammate crashed what had been a three-game party for the 76ers. And when he was mercifully done, Andre Iguodala had poured himself 32 points, helped himself to a career-high seven three-pointers and took a 110-90 victory for him and his Golden State teammates. On a team that is set with two of the game's premier sharpshooters in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, last night it was Iguodala who was draining long balls as if it was his specialty. Curry and Thompson weren't bad, either, as Curry collected a triple-double with 18 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, while Thompson made four three-pointers en route to 15 points.

THE LEVEL at which Michael Carter-Williams played and the numbers he accumulated during his first three pro games brought about comparisons and adulation the likes of which few rookies around here have ever gotten. Yesterday, it was made official as the NBA named Carter-Williams its Eastern Conference Player of the Week. In wins over Miami, Washington and Chicago, the 76ers point guard went for 20.7 points, 9.0 assists and 4.3 steals a game. He becomes only the second rookie to win the award in his first week in the league.

On paper, the 76ers don't have a chance. The Golden State Warriors have too much star power. Sixers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams will get exposed. And the Sixers won't be able to dictate the pace late in the fourth quarter. But isn't that what people said before the Sixers' first three games, which all ended with upset victories? "We just go out there and compete, stay positive, and play the whole 48 minutes," Evan Turner said. That formula has enabled the youthful and inexperienced Sixers to equal their best start since opening 3-0 in the 2006-07 season.

Monday was Trail Blazers rookie C.J. McCollum's first full day in Portland after he was selected 10th overall in the NBA draft. McCollum averaged 23.9 points and 5.0 rebounds per game last season as a senior at Lehigh. While his year was cut short by a broken left foot, the 6-foot-3 guard said he's fully healed and he was cleared to play in April. McCollum, the Patriot League's all-time leading scorer, said he'll have to develop some defense. "Coach [Terry Stotts] will tell you, he doesn't care too much if you're knocking down threes if you're giving up threes," he said.
