"If I moonwalk after I get a rebound, that's exciting. If [Andrew Bynum] does, like, a cartwheel, take his shirt off, and [puts] electrical shocks on his nipples and starts doing the Electric Slide, that's exciting." - Ron Artest

Anderson can pretend to be a point guard, but he isn't really one. He's a passer and ball handler, but he's best at defending the shooting guard. Shooting is also his weakness, leaving Anderson floating between positions. He's well and truly on the NBA radar, however, playing briefly with the Oklahoma City Thunder last year and appearing on summer league rosters for both the Bobcats and Nuggets this summer, averaging 4.6 points and 2.4 rebounds for Denver but playing only 1 minute for Charlotte.

   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)

Antonio Anderson - Anderson is having a strangely bad season. Last year he was on the cusp of the NBA, having stints with both the Bobcats and Rockets, and even briefly played in it with the Thunder. When he wasn't in the NBA, he was in the D-League, averaging 16/4/6 with good defense as a 6'6 point guard. This year, however, his numbers have nose dived. In 30 minutes per contest, Anderson is averaging only 8.1 points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, shooting 37% from the field and 28% from three, looking considerably more like the player that he was in college. Anderson has been disadvantaged by the stacked Rio Grande Valley Vipers backcourt and wing positions; until recently, Garrett Temple was on the team, alongside the starting backcourt of the aforementioned Mustafa Shakur and leading scorer Jerel McNeal, with Richard Roby, Stanley Robinson and Terrel Harris also getting minutes. But Anderson was still getting opportunities as the starting small forward, and yet he has not responded.

   The best of what's left after what was the best of what's left has gone and is no longer left

- Antonio Anderson * - Angellico Biella (Italy) were once interested in Anderson, and he also worked out with Cleveland, yet both teams seem to have gone elsewhere. He is now reportedly about to sign with the Rockets.

   The best of what's left

Antonio Anderson - Anderson briefly replaced Weaver with the Thunder last year, and is a comparable player. He's not ideally suited to shooting guard nor point guard, yet he's a decent passer and playmaker with a two guard's size and fine athleticism, who struggles greatly only with his jumpshot. If he had one, he wouldn't on the cusp of the NBA like this.

   2010 Summer League Rosters: Denver Nuggets

Antonio Anderson

Anderson was previously covered in the Bobcats summer league roster round-up of last week. As it happens, however, Anderson played only 89 seconds for the Lolcats, recording nothing but a trillion. Per 48 minutes, that's still a trillion.

   2010 Summer League Rosters: Charlotte Bobcats

Antonio Anderson

Anderson signed with the Bobcats in training camp last year, but did not make the team. At the time, with Ronald Murray and Raja Bell at shooting guard alongside D.J. Augustin and the recently drafted Gerald Henderson, and with Raymond Felton at point, the Bobcats were all right for guards. Anderson went elsewhere, spending most of the year in the D-League and spending a couple of 10 day contracts with the Thunder. He's still not ideally suited to point guard, which is what the Bobcats need the most, but he has more of a chance than he did last year. And he came pretty close last year.

   The 2010 Puerto Rican BSN Season

Antonio Anderson - 5 games, 36.2 mpg, 16.2 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 4.6 apg, 2.8 fpg, 1.6 spg, 0.6 bpg, 36% FG, 23% 3PT, 59% FT

Millsap lasted the majority of the season before being released due to injury. In his place, Humacao scored a quality signing when they landed Antonio Anderson, the former Memphis guard whose first professional season involved multiple NBA looks (and even a few regular season minutes with the Thunder.) Anderson formed an unlikely pairing with Ali Berdiel, HumAcao's best domestic player and a guard who resembles Anderson quite a lot. Like Anderson, Valparaiso product Berdiel is a tall guard with a point guard's instincts and defensive versatility; unlike Anderson, however, Berdiel can shoot.

[...] Mays missed a game on May 15th, and ex-NBA big man Jermareo Davidson was brought in to replace him. And when Mays returned in time for the next game, Davidson took the place of Anderson, who did not play for the team again. However, Davidson underperformed, and another ex-NBA player from this past CBA season, Corsley Edwards, filled his role. Edwards averaged 29.3 points, 8.3 points and 2.7 assists in 39 minutes per game in China, shooting 55% from the field, 69% from three point range (somehow) and 78% from the line, leaving only when he broke a finger. Included in there was a 50 point outing and a 47 point outing, and in 15 games he never scored less than 20. He might have done something similar in Puerto Rico had he had more than two games to work with.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 3

- Antonio Anderson

Antonio Anderson is also in the D-League. After going undrafted out of Memphis this summer, Anderson went to camp with the Bobcats, but he never really had a chance of making the team. He was then taken 12th in the D-League draft by the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, three places after Rashad was. For the Vipers, Anderson is averaging 41.9 minutes, 17.5 points, 6.9 assists, 4.4 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 0.7 blocks per game, shooting 46% from the floor and 30% from three point range, all while starting at was is essentially the small forward position. (Decide for yourself whether it's him or Garrett Temple that's technically the shooting guard. Can't say it matters much.)

The Vipers are the D-League affiliate of the Houston Rockets, and Rockets big man Joey Dorsey is on assignment there. He's putting up numbers, too. In 29.4 minutes of 10 games, Dorsey is averaging 14.4 points, 13.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.3 steal and 1.4 blocks per game, shooting 64% from the field. It looks good, doesn't it? But somehow, in only those 29 minutes per game, Dorsey is also averaging 4.0 fouls and a ridiculous 4.0 turnovers. How do you turn it over 4 times a game in 30 minutes when you don't touch the ball on offense very often? How many moving screens can one man set? Baffling times.
