  • Long Description

Kenny Anderson was born in Queens, New York. As a 16-year-old high school sophomore, the LeFrak City, Queens native who attended academic and athletic powerhouse Archbishop Molloy High School in Briarwood, was considered one of the best basketball prospects in America, Collegiate recruiters began scouting Anderson in sixth grade and he was on the front page of the New York City sports section when he was 14. By the end of his high school career, he was a three-time Parade All-American, a feat not accomplished since Lew Alcindor, and the first player to be named All-City four times. In addition, he was a McDonald's All-American, Gatorade's high school player of the year, and named Player of the Year by the New York State Sportswriters Association. He was named New York State Mr. Basketball by the New York State Coaches Organization and Parade, Naismith, and USA Today player of the year. Despite his coach, Jack Curran, benching him for the first quarter of all of his games during his freshman year at Molloy, Anderson set the all-time state record for scoring in New York, with 2,621 points.

People in the "hood" knew Anderson was special. They made sure he stayed on track, and when he got drafted by the Nets at the age of 19, shouts of celebration could be heard on the terraces of Le Frak. Mr. Chibbs is a story about a boy from the "hood" who made it to the NBA but never forgot where he came from. Anderson amassed millions in his career only to lose it all. Living a comfortable middle class existence with his wife Natasha, Anderson's struggles with memories of hunger and molestation as a child. His main goal now, to stay on track, secure a coaching job and most importantly be a good dad and husband.
