Mr. Anderson is back in the (basketball) matrix. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel is reporting that Kenny Anderson, who starred at Georgia Tech before being selected with the No. 2 pick in the 1991 NBA Draft, will become the boys' basketball coach at Posnack Jewish Day School in Davie. If a tiny school that went .500 last year seems to you like an odd fit for the one-time NBA All-Star, you're not the only one. Posnack athletic director Mitch Evron had this to say to the Sentinel:
"We're a small, 1A, private Jewish school that doesn't have any a basketball rich tradition, or anything like that...I never really thought anything of it, but I spoke to him on the phone, and he was very sincere."
Anderson, who scored a then-state-record 2,621 points for Archbishop Molloy High School in Queens, N.Y., is considered one of the best point guards ever to come out of New York City. So if nothing else, expect the ball-handling to improve for Posnack this season.
