01:53 PM ET 10.31 | New Denver Nuggets forward Andre Iguodala was a polarizing figure during his long career with the Philadelphia 76ers. Some fans loved his ability to do the little things, while others bemoaned his struggles as a scorer and his large contract. Iguodala is returning to Philadelphia for the first time as a member of another organization on Wednesday, and many have wondered how he'll be received. Philadelphia guard Jrue Holiday, though, has his own answer. "I feel very strongly, probably 94 percent that he???s going to get booed," he told WIP radio in Philadelphia.

94% is a someone odd random number. And just one % short of first order statistical significance.

That's stupid. The guy did what he could while with Philly, they traded him, so boo him now??

Philly fans are jerks.

i assume that you put it in the form of a question because you have no clue why sixers fans have little love for a guy who sulked his way through 8 years of sub-mediocre basketball and made it known at every turn that he didn't want to be here. maybe you missed when he threw players and even his coach under the bus. the same coach who had talked andre's game up so much over the past 3 years in an effort to deal him that it helped him 'earn' an all-star appearance and made people actually believe that he is an elite player. regardless, the guy will get more cheers than boos. you don't know **** about sixers fans.

Not surprised. Philly fans would boo their own mom. Classless tools

He hit some clutch free throws to win that fluky series vs. the bulls last year. They should appreciate him for that at least. And wasn't he an all-star too? It's not like he left by choice. But Philly fans are not the brightest, so I expect them to boo. It's what they do... I hope they enjoy that nutjob Bynum. He's going to be a real treat...

Couldn't agree more. I think Iverson is the only player that fit the Philly thug-life persona.
