ORLANDO - It appeared as if the only thing that accompanied 76ers swingman Andre Iguodala at every moment this All-Star weekend was a smile. The eighth-year player seemed genuinely flattered, humbled, excited and nervous. It certainly was a different side to the player Sixers fans have been watching during his career. Some Iguodala moments: * He was the first player on the court last night before the game. Iguodala appeared on the Amway Center floor about an hour-and-a-half before the tipoff, maybe to get rid of some of the nervous energy that had no doubt built up. * He was the third No. 9 to enter to game for the Eastern Conference, following Chicago's Luol Deng and Boston's Rajon Rondo.

The 76ers have a 23-30 record, but they are riding a five-game winning streak and the playoffs are within sight. With 29 games remaining, starting with tonight's matchup at the Target Center against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Sixers find themselves in a virtual tie with Atlanta and New Jersey for seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings. For Andre Iguodala, answering questions from reporters about a possible playoff run beats the alternative. For much of the season, Iguodala has faced questions about why he did not sign a contract extension by the Oct. 31 deadline.

ORLANDO - While the separation seemed amicable when it happened, it sure has turned a little bit to the ugly side. Former 76er Andre Iguodala, traded this offseason to the Denver Nuggets as part of the deal that brought center Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia from Los Angeles, said in an interview with Matt Moore, a blogger with CBSSports.com, that, among other things, his time in Philadelphia was draining, particularly under the tutelage of...

THERE SEEMED to be a calmness and easiness to Andre Iguodala Wednesday when he met with the media after the Denver Nuggets' morning shootaround Wednesday. Perhaps it was because he thinks he's in a better place now, as a member of the Nuggets. Or maybe he was just happy realizing he doesn't have to meet with the gathered group of reporters anymore. Whatever the reasoning, it was noticeable. Not long after Iguodala was dealt to Denver in a four-team trade, he knew that his first game as a professional not wearing a 76ers uniform would be against the team that drafted him and employed him for eight seasons.

FORWARD Andre Iguodala missed his second straight game Tuesday night as he continues to be plagued with patellar tendinitis in his left knee. Also for the second consecutive game, Jodie Meeks took Iguodala's place in the lineup against the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers. "He came in [to shootaround Tuesday morning], got some treatment, got on the bike to warm up a little bit and then we were doing our walkthrough and he went back and got some more treatment," coach Doug Collins said.

If Andre Iguodala is truly the 76ers' leader, then he'll stop demanding the ball at game's end. Not what you expected to read this Sunday, less than 48 hours since the Sixers clinched a playoff berth? Expecting more rah-rah platitudes and liberally distributed compliments - a fluffy, tasty, sinful milkshake? Too bad. The brilliance of this regular season has been covered - ad nauseam, really. The overachieving results, the staunch defense, the well-executed offense, the sparkling chemistry: It's all been written.

TORONTO - For Andre Iguodala, it was All Hollow Eve. His team came up short in its season-opening game against a very good Toronto Raptors team and, with two hours to go until a ridiculous NBA deadline, the 76ers star sat in the locker room staring into a stubbornly silent cell phone. The witching hour approached and Iguodala still didn't have the most significant contract of every NBA player's career. "If it doesn't happen, I'll have another year to prove myself," Iguodala said, as if 80 games' worth of injury risk was some kind of welcome opportunity.

MIAMI - It ended too soon, and that was part of the frustration. No one affiliated with the 76ers was ready for this fun run in the playoffs to end, not yet, not with the team playing so well and pushing the Miami Heat in four of the five games. There was huge disappointment, sure. When Elton Brand fouled out in the final minute, Doug Collins embraced him and told him: "I'm so proud of you. " When Andre Iguodala's questionable outside jumper clanged off the rim with 10.3 seconds left, the game, the series, the season was ostensibly, if not officially, over.

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.

WHEN IT COMES to defense, the 76ers and coach Brett Brown have chosen a way they are willing to get beat. They are determined to protect the paint with everyone first, then get out on jump shooters second. They have perfected it - perfected it in that they are certainly getting beat that way. Badly. Last night the Washington Wizards, not one of the more prolific shooting teams in the NBA (or any other league, for that matter), drained a franchise-record 18 three-pointers in 33 attempts and rode that to a 116-102 victory, the first of their four-game season.

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.

THE THING about tweets is that they usually elicit the rawest of emotions. At about 12:59 a.m. yesterday, former 76ers All-Star swingman Andre Iguodala simply tweeted, "Wow!!!" He then quickly followed with "Really?? Ok . . . MOTIVATION!!!!!!" Iguodala's tweets were in response to the news that the Sacramento Kings had abruptly yanked a reported 4-year, $56 million contract deal off of the table. It seemed "Iggy" tried to pull some fancy footwork on the lowly Kings by using their offer as a bargaining chip to try to get more money out of the Denver Nuggets - the team he played for last season after the Sixers traded him in the Andrew Bynum deal.

Andre Iguodala brought the energy and the Denver Nuggets rediscovered their toughness in time to stave off elimination Tuesday night with a 107-100 win over the visiting Golden State Warriors. The Nuggets slowed down Golden State's guards, jump-started their transition game and got under Andrew Bogut's skin in Game 5, jumping out to a 22-point lead before weathering a Warriors' rally. Game 6 is Thursday night in Oakland. Golden State leads the series, 3-2. Iguodala had 25 points and 12 rebounds.

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]

THOUGH HE has been a true professional throughout, this hasn't been an easy season for 76ers swingman Dorell Wright. Brought in mostly to be an outside sniper, but also for his ballhandling and defensive presence, Wright would seem to be a nice fit in a lineup that included Andrew Bynum. But we all know how that all fell apart, and with it perhaps a little bit of the vision for Wright. His time fluctuated tremendously through most of the season, with some starts sprinkled in, along with some nights when he never got off the bench.

NEW YORK - Nobody said the Sixers were not going to miss some of the things that discarded All-Star Andre Iguodala brought to the table - especially with center Andrew Bynum, the big chip they received in this summer's blockbuster trade, still missing from action. That's not to say the Sixers would have beaten the New York Knicks on Sunday if Iguodala had been in the lineup, but it's fair to say they would have been able to play the hard-nosed defensive style required to win a game in which they are overmatched.

I DON'T MEAN to be too hard on Andre Iguodala, because there are things to be said for his eight seasons as a 76er. Still, sometimes you just have to tell things as they were. Too much about Iguodala looked too familiar on Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The uniform he now wears is that of the Denver Nuggets, but his performance in his first trip back to South Philly since the blockbuster trade that sent him west wasn't distinguishable from the 615 games he played while wearing a Sixers jersey.

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.
