Description

Kenny Anderson was one of the greatest point guards in NBA basketball history. A NYC boy who excelled in high school and at college, he was selected #2 in the NBA draft in 1991 by the New Jersey Nets. He had a distinguished playing career including making the All-Star team, but his post-NBA life presented several challenges for him. We talk about the highs and lows of his career and his life.

My featured song in this episode is “Redemption Road”. Spotify link here.
