It wasn't all that long ago that Anderson was sitting down at the end of the bench.
``The coach would put me in for the last 30 seconds and I'd go in mad," Anderson said. "I was really short. I was 5-foot-4 back in the eighth grade."
``I can understand the last person on the bench, because that was me," he added.
Now Anderson has become a hot commodity on the west coast and his name belongs in the same realm as Jennings and Drew. He has a terrific feel for the game, is unselfish – but can also score when needed – whether it be knifing his way to the basket or knocking down shots from the perimeter.
The 6-foot-2, 165-piund Anderson still needs to get stronger, but his court vision and decision-making makes up for his lack of strength right now.
