A standout sports memoir from NBA powerhouse, a swingman and NBA All-Star.

Andre Iguodala has been an indomnitable force in the NBA for nearly 15 years. Playing impressively first with the Philadelphia 76ers—where he was named the 2004 Rookie of the Year—and then the Denver Nuggets, it was in 2013, when he moved to the Golden State Warriors that he became a part of a historic team in the tradition of the 1990s Bulls and the 2000s Lakers.

In the 2015 NBA finals, Iguodala won his first NBA championship playing as the sixth man on his stellar Warriors team, and was the first player of tournament history to win the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award to have not started in all the games of the series. The Warriors have added two NBA titles since that championship, winning again in both 2017 and 2018. He won a gold medal for the United States on the 2012 Men’s Basketball Olympics team.

Off the court, Andre has become an incredibly successful tech investor, and an advocate for the importance of professional athletes managing their fortunes responsibly. He has been called among the most tech-savvy, best-connected players in the NBA, and has been referred to as the NBA’s unofficial ambassador to Silicon Valley.

INSIDER PERSPECTIVE ON AN HISTORICAL NBA TEAM: Andre has been a key contributor to the Golden State Warriors, a team that has dominated NBA regular season and post-season play for the last five years. He now plays for the Memphis Grizzlies.

A LIASON BETWEEN SILICON VALLEY AND THE NBA: Andre has a foot in two worlds that are both having huge moments in America’s cultural conversation.

MORE THAN A SPORTS MEMOIR: This memoir will provide readers with valuable lessons in leadership, that, though told through the lens of his basketball career, have been made more globally applicable.

A CO-AUTHOR WITH IMPRESSIVE CREDENTIALS: Carvell Wallace, the co-author, has covered sports, race, music and more for the likes of GQ, ESPN, The New Yorker, and The Guardian

Andre Iguodala is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. The swingman was an NBA All-Star in 2012 and has been named to the NBA All-Defensive Team twice.

Praise for The Sixth Man
“The best basketball memoir since Bill Russell’s Go up for Glory…a sports memoir for the ages.”Booklist (starred review) 

“Iguodala’s story is a compelling and important one that provides a glimpse into what people of color face, from little boys to the height of stardom, in a country ‘designed to wreak absolute havoc on the confidence of black people.’”—Shelf Awareness

“A true insider’s perspective of the Warriors’ championship teams.”Library Journal 

“A fascinating look at the intersection of class, race and basketball.”Axios

“A riveting read by one of the NBA’s sharpest minds.”Forbes

“A deeply personal look at Iguodala’s life growing up in Springfield, Ill., with his single mother and brother, who he says taught him how to be a defender early on. In reflective, conversational prose, Iguodala recounts his early awareness of segregation and racism, the strength and influence of the strong women in his life (and later, coaches), and his gradual realization of how to best harness his intelligence, ambition and drive.”Datebook
