With the Nets closing in on their move to New York (of which Brooklyn is part), they've been reaching out more and more to New Yorkers who played for them in the past. Brooklynite Albert King had great seats for the naming event last week and Wednesday, Kenny Anderson of Queens got a tour of Barclays Wednesday.
As Al Iannazzone reported prior to the tour, Anderson has turned his life around and makes no excuses for his past, which includes seven children with five different women. Now, he's working as a high school coach at David Posnack Jewish Day School in Florida.
"If you do not change your ways after 15, 20 years, I think you’ve really got problems," Anderson said.
