08:08 AM ET 04.29 | A day after making a statement that made vague his interest in playing for Philadelphia, Andre Iguodala reportedly did not show up for his exit meeting with Sixers officials on Thursday. Iguodala was the only player who did not have an individual meeting with coach Doug Collins, team president Rod Thorn and general manager Ed Stefanski a day after the Sixers were eliminated from the playoffs in five games by the Miami Heat. Iguodala was at the team's practice site at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine for a team meeting and also to talk to reporters. ... In his meeting with reporters, Iguodala was asked about his comments made after Wednesday night's game about his future with the team. "I never said I didn't want to be here," Iguodala said [Thursday]. "Like I said, I just want to compete for titles. We made a lot of strides this year. I think we're heading in the right direction."

Iggy is clearly frustrated. After all of these years, why hasn't the Philly brass drafted/signed a scorer to support him?

What is it with players not wanting to be coached by Dougy? That fella must be hell to deal with.

He is still a hell of a coach, just needs better player management skillz.

They did this year but he is very inconsistent. He is a good defender but I think he is only a 3rd or 4th option on the team. He would be perfect in a championship team.

The Bulls ;-) .
