Andre Iguodala made an interesting statement regarding his future in the NBA.

The 36-year-old forward of the Miami Heat said he can play for another four years before retiring from the league.

“So I’m just trying to be appreciative of every day, and try to make the most of every day. I can play basketball until I’m 40 – easy. Especially with the way they’ve dumbed down the game.

I’m 36 now, and the way they’ve dumbed down the game means I see my value more than ever, although my value isn’t as valuable as it was before,” Iguodala said in a recent interview with Sam Amick of The Athletic.

Iguodala, who is now in his 16th season in the league, is getting ready for his sixth straight appearance in the NBA Finals.
