The limited hand-rim contact works when it's a player extending from the depths a la Dwight and Blake because there's still extreme power behind. With Iggy though, a few of his finishes in his contest looked a little sterile while the others weren't terribly clean.

I'm probably doing a horrible job of trying to break it down scientifically. There was just something, on some level, missing.

I think what it is is Iguodala is a dunker's dunker. Like he's so technical, he does things that we hardcore bball fans think: "Holy shit, how'd he do that?" but he lacks flair.
