21 year old Kyle Anderson might not be the quickest guy on the court, or on a team…or even quicker than teammates old man Duncan and big boned Boris but he’s been effective in the Summer League. The 3rd leading scorer of the league put up 25 points (10-22 fg) and grabbed 8 boards vs the Nets on Thursday. He also hit a pair of clutch free throws in the final minute to help the Spurs come away with a 3 point win.
Although the Spurs got deeper at the forward spot with the additions of LaMarcus Aldridge and David West, I’m still betting on seeing the 2nd year Spur play a bigger role with the championship contenders – slowly but surely.
