Kyle “Slow Mo” Anderson graduated from St. Anthony High School (New York, New York) in 2012 and was given a grade of 97 going into college, which ranked him 6th on ESPN top 100. He drew major interest from UCLA, Seton Hall, Florida, Georgetown, and St. John’s. Anderson was also a McDonald’s All-American and Jordan Brand player. Playing in both these elite games put the spotlight on Anderson, which led him to UCLA. In his two seasons with the Bruins, he averaged 12.2 points per game and 8.7 rebounds per game. Anderson was awarded to the first team Pac 12, third team All- American, and Pac 12 MOP.
He then declared that he was entering the NBA draft. Anderson was taken 30th by the San Antonio Spurs, and struggled in his first season, averaging a poor 2.2 points per game and only 2.2 rebounds per game. This led to him getting sent down to the D-League, where he played for Austin Spurs and averaged an impressive 21.3 points per game, and 7.1 defensive rebounds. Anderson showed that he deserves to get called up to the San Antonio Spurs. Anderson just finished leading the Spurs to a NBA summer league championship and, was named the Summer League MVP. It is time to give Anderson another shot in the NBA.
