On Saturday Dei Lynam at csnphilly.com landed an interview with Andre Iguodala.  The bonus was that the interview took place right here in the City of Brotherly Love.

What was AI9 doing in Philladunkia nation this past Saturday? 

Well Dre was at Cherashore Playground (10th and Olney) for the “Part of the Solution Community Day“.  Hosted by Philly native Mustafa Shakur (who is Dre’s former Arizona teammate), the event is a day long festival of clinics for kids, food, games, guest speakers and a 3-on-3 men’s basketball tournament.

Among the interesting items from Lynam’s interview with Dre is that he said he “enjoys being here” in Philadelphia and that his comments after the Miami series were “taken out of context”.  In the vidoe Dre does seem to be genuinely relaxed and haopy to talk with Lynam.

Still, to us Dre sounds like a guy who realizes he may be stuck in Philly for a while and needs to make the best of what he views as a bad situation.

Watch the full interview after the jump.
