Kenny Anderson is doing better following stroke Saturday. His white spotted it early and got him to the hospital quickly. His speech and eyesight were affected but have improved.— Peter Vecsey (@PeterVecsey1) February 26, 2019
Anderson, 48, was the No. 2 overall pick of the New Jersey Nets in 1991. He scored more than 10,000 NBA points and was an All-Star in 1994. He finished his pro career overseas in 2006. At Molloy, he was a four-time Parade All-American and New York’s Mr. Basketball in 1989. He led Molloy to two New York City Catholic league championships and scored 2,621 points, then a state record. In a 2017 documentary entitled “Mr. Chibbs,” he discussed how he had been sexually abused as a child by both a person who lived in his neighborhood and a basketball coach. He revealed the news to the New York Post in 2013. After being fired for a DUI arrest while coaching at the David Posnack Jewish Day School in 2013, Anderson was later hired as the head coach at NAIA school Fisk University last September.
All the best to the great Kenny Anderson. https://t.co/iuI2itQytV— Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) February 26, 2019
