The other big time scorer is 6'0 senior scoring point guard, Kevin Anderson, a highlight waiting to happen. Anderson has a great handle and loves the crossover dribble, is athletic and quick, able to get to the basket, armed with a floater, thriving in transition, and with a much improved three point jumpshot. Anderson always had a good two point jumpshot, and has stretched that range out as a senior, making him a more versatile offensive weapon. He is only a point guard because his size and handle, not because of his mindset or passing skills, and his slender size means he struggles around the basket, yet despite said size, Anderson's speed and quick hands make him a presence defensively as well.
Kevin Anderson - Anderson compares to Ronnie Price. Ronnie Price has had a multi-year NBA career, in spite of his fringe talent, so such a comparison is meant favourably. Yet a key condition to the comparison is to note that Ronnie is slightly better at everything. Both are point guard sized without being point guards, although both have improved in this regard, particularly Ronnie. Both are athletic, but only Ronnie can do this:
Both put forth good defensive effort and have decent hands, but Ronnie is bigger and faster. Both are making the adjustment to the point guard spot from being undersized scorers, but Ronnie has made it better. Both put forth good defensive effort and have good hands, but Ronnie is more disruptive. Both are sub-par jumpshooters, but Ronnie has slightly more consistent range (which, considering his 31% career NBA three point shooting, is no great endorsement). And both are small, but Ronnie is slightly bigger. Anderson had a good senior campaign, aided (and aiding) a good season for the entire Spiders program. He has skills, effort and hustle. Yet he still comes up a little short.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
