Default Josh Smith vs Andre Iguodala

Who would you rather have on your team Josh Smith or Andre Iguodala and why?

I think I'll take Iggy. A little less flash (although not much), but I think he's the better overall talent. Doesn't rely as much on athletisism as Josh does.

And he's taller. If both guys are about the same overall, I'd rather have the taller of the two.

No he doesn't. He fills statsheets, there's a difference.

Smith is a better shot blocker
Iggy is a better scorer
Smith is a better defender
Iggy is better on offense

both athletic, that was a good comparison. In the long run, i'll take Josh Smith.

Yeah because I'm sure that people who lead the entire league in overall blocks never play defense...they come by luck.

I should've rephrased that. He obviously plays defense, but it's not like he's at the top of the league in it. He blocks shots, that's it.

Iggy gets steals and he's a better 1v1 defender. Hmm...

I'm not trying to imply it's not close, but personally, I like Iggy.

It depends what kind of offense it is.

Not to mention, Josh avg about 1.5 steals per game. Josh is a much better rebounder. Since JJ has been down Josh has been avg 20/10/3/3/3 per game. Iguodala has a higher scoring avg because he has been the focus of the offense longer than Josh has.


The ceiling for Josh Smith is much higher. He still gets a lot of points off of athleticism, be he is developing a post game and his jumper is getting more consistent. Where is Iguodala going to improve? Is he going to get a post game? Will he all of a sudden going to start shooting 50% from the field? Iggy will probably max out as a 19/5/5 player which is awesome. Josh may top out as a 25/10/3/3/1.5 player, which is All-star and MVP material.

Perfect. That's what I tried to do, pick two players that are highly comparable to each other that it's hard for an individual like yourself to choose one over the other. I like Josh Smith better though. Sorry Ridonks.
