WNBA Player Aerial Powers Blows Up on Andre Iguodala for Giving Her Compliment

1 Min Read

After watching the Washington Mystics beat the Connecticut Sun on Tuesday, Miami Heat veteran Andre Iguodala complimented star guard Aerial Powers.

However, his attempt to affirm Powers didn’t go so well. That’s because Iguodala addressed the 26-year-old by her jersey number and not her name, which led to a Twitter war.


Iguodala, 36, is one of the most professional, well-respected players in the NBA.

In fact, he is the first vice president of the National Basketball Players Association. His online altercation with Powers appeared out of character.

The forward is also a special player on the basketball floor.

The 2015 NBA Finals MVP has captured three championships and appeared in five NBA Finals over the course of his career. He accomplished those feats with the Golden State Warriors.

Now, Iguodala is focused on winning a title with the Heat. The Heat acquired the veteran in a three-team trade from the Memphis Grizzles in February

The journeyman has career averages of 12.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.
