Chat With Orlando's Nick Anderson
Anderson, the 11th overall selection out of the University of Illinois in the 1989 NBA Draft, played 10 seasons for the Orlando Magic from 1989-99. In 692 career regular season games with Orlando, he averaged 15.4 ppg., 5.3 rpg., 2.8 apg. and 1.45 stlpg. Anderson ranks as the franchise's all-time leading scorer with 10,650 points. He also stands as the Magic's all-time leader in games played (692), field goals made (4,075), steals (1,004), field goals attempted (8,976), three-point field goals attempted (2,480) and minutes played (22,440).
Anderson may best be remembered for one of the greatest moments in Magic history -- stealing the ball from Michael Jordan during the closing seconds of Game 1 of the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals, allowing Orlando to win the contest and eventually move on to the NBA Finals. This past season Anderson was the first honoree as part of the Magic's "Commitment to the Past" program, a multi-season effort aimed at embracing Magic history and the team's former players. Anderson won the inaugural Rich and Helen DeVos Community Enrichment Award in 1995-96.
