Andre Iguodala wants to come play basketball at Apple Park’s new private courts

With the new basketball season just a day away, Golden State Warrior Andre Iguodala has his eyes on another basketball court to conquer: Apple Park’s new — and private — basketball courts.

Responding to an article by Business Insider on Apple Park, which outlines all the amenities the $5 billion campus will provide to its 13,000 employees, Iguodala wondered on Twitter whether next year’s Warriors training camp can happen in Cupertino.

@Cue is Apple executive Eddy Cue. Cue, who supervises all of Apple’s internet services such as Apple Music, Apple Pay, and App Store, is a well-known Warriors fan who can regularly be seen in his courtside seat at Oracle Arena.

During this year’s NBA Finals in June, Cue was unexpectedly in the news for looking like he was yelling at Rihanna to sit down.

While the NBA has growing ties to Silicon Valley, no one player has developed as strong a tie to the tech world as Iguodala. The veteran forward has invested stakes ranging from $25,000 to $150,000 in about 25 startups, according to Bloomberg. In August, Bloomberg, Iguodala and Warriors star Steph Curry hosted the Players Technology Summit in San Francisco to better bridge the tech world with the sports world.
