Andre Iguodala experienced a lot when he was playing in the NBA.
Of course, the most famous period of his career was when he played alongside Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and the rest of the Golden State Warriors.
But even though Iguodala played with those men, he doesn’t cite them as the smartest teammate he had.
Speaking with JJ Redick on The Old Man & The Three, Iguodala said that Andre Miller was the smartest player he worked with.

Iguodala and Miller were on the same Denver Nuggets roster and that is when Iguodala learned so much.
At first, he was confounded by Miller when he would repeatedly ask him what he saw when watching highlights of games.
Iguodala felt lost and wasn’t sure what Miller was talking about.
But he said that he started to learn and soon understood what he was talking about with that question.
Iguodala said he also learned a lot about assists from Miller.
That changed his game forever, including during his time with the Warriors.
It’s not surprising that Miller helped Iguodala with assists.
In 2002, he was the league’s assist champion.
Miller played in the league for 17 years and put up an average of 12.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 6.5 during that time.
He moved around the NBA a lot, playing for teams such as the Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers, Portland Trail Blazers, and of course the Nuggets.
He may not have ever won a championship or even become a household name for many.
But it’s clear that Miller had a strong impact and influence on other champions in the league.NEXT: Julius Randle Calls Out Knicks Coach Over Intense Workouts
