Anderson, who burst onto the college basketball scene in 1989 and helped Georgia Tech to its first ever Final Four appearance in 1990. Host Cory Alexander travels to New York City, where Kenny became a playground star, and talks to him about his career at Georgia Tech and 15 years in the NBA, as well as coaching high school basketball in Florida.
Then spend some time with former Duke guard Jay Williams, who led the Blue Devils to the 2001 NCAA Championship. Hear about his All-American days at Duke, the motorcycle accident that ended his NBA career and his new career as a national television commentator.
