Episode 40: Kenny Anderson on growing up in Queens, a Final Four at Georgia Tech and his NBA career
In The Front Row with Mike Vaccaro
Kenny Anderson grew up in LeFrak City in Queens, NY raised by his mom and motivated by his older sister. Basketball was his sport at an early age which took him to Archbishop Molloy High School where he played for legendary head coach Jack Curran. Following in the footsteps of friend and mentor Kenny Smith, Anderson would win many trophies and receive plenty of accolades. After scoring over 2600 points in his career, Anderson was the top recruit in the country with Georgia Tech and Syracuse emerging as his choice to go to college. On his mom’s orders, Georgia Tech and Coach Bobby Cremins were the choice. In his freshman year (1989-90), he teamed with Dennis Scott and Brian Oliver to make up “Lethal Weapon 3” which led the Yellow Jackets to the Final Four where they lost to eventual National Champion UNLV. Following his sophomore year at Tech, Anderson would forgo his last two years and became the 2nd overall pick by the New Jersey Nets in the 1991 draft. He became the youngest player in the NBA at the time and would be voted by the fans as an All Star starter during his third season in 1994. After 4 seasons with the Nets, Anderson would make a number of stops in the NBA including memorable stints with the Portland Trailblazers and the Boston Celtics. After retiring in 2006, Anderson eventually made his way into coaching and is the current head coach at Fisk University in Nashville, TN. Anderson shares plenty of memories with us and also tells us about his open and honest documentary, “Mr. Chibbs”, the nickname his mother gave him growing up. He also recounts time with Bill Russell, the shooting guards he played alongside, the coaches who influenced his coaching style and the degree he earned almost 20 years after leaving Georgia Tech.

I’m good at some things. I’m not good at everything. When you can surround yourself with people who are experts in what they do, it makes the whole so much better than the individual parts.You have to know what you believe in, and when you believe in something strong enough, you can get through any kind of rejection.I’ll always be advancing different business interests throughout my life; but, the core of all that will always be people.A big part of my life is focusing on the positives. [...] There is so much good in the world, and I choose to focus on those things.Success is not a matter of chance—it’s a matter of choice. [...] The world would define success by money and fame; but, real success has a lot more to do with what you can give than what you can gain.
