Evan Turner, Andre Iguodala, JJ Redick on the smartest NBA players they know

Who are the smartest NBA players of all time? Former Boston Celtics player and assistant coach Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala joined former NBAer and host of the “Old Man and the 3” podcast JJ Redick to try to answer that question on a recent episode.

One player they highlight is Andre Miller, known for his basketball IQ and his ability to see the game at a high level. Miller’s soft-spoken demeanor off the court contrasts with his on-court intelligence. The conversation also touches on fellow Boston alum Rajon Rondo‘s basketball acumen. Rondo was noted for his preparation, understanding of defenses, and ability to guide his teammates to the right spots on the court. He was not only a talented player but also a student of the game who sought advice from coaches and past opponents.
