Greg Anthony on the Blazers: I think they need another reliable third option. But a lot of teams are in the same kind of boat. The question is, realistically, does one of those young talented core guys emerge. I think that’s what they’re kinda hoping to see with the development. I think they’re going to be patient. I think they kind of have to at this point. I think you have to have some kind of reality at what happened last year. They beat the Clippers without their two best players. Everybody was excited about that but the reality is that I don’t think they win that series if those guys are healthy. Couple that with the fact that those other guys haven’t had the consistency while dealing with expectations. That’s the other aspect of this. A lot of young teams, when you come into the season with expectations, what they don’t often remember is they’re going to get more respect from the opponent.
Are the Blazers the most likely team to land the eighth seed in the West? Greg Anthony: I don’t know if I’d say most likely but I think they got a really good chance. I think the adversity of the season, in a lot of ways, might help them grow and get better collectively. And the fact that even through they’ve had a disappointing season and they look up and they’re right there … sometimes that’s what you gotta do. You gotta focus big picture on what the goals are coming in and the fact that in reality they’re still achievable. They can still make the postseason. They can still accomplish that goal. And that will give some of those younger guys, the supporting cast, more confidence moving forward.
Andrew Andrews (6-2, 200), Washington (Los Angeles Clippers) Andrews knows how to put the ball in the basket, as evidenced by his 20.9 ppg average as a senior at Washington. Playing for the Clippers in Orlando, Andrews put together several solid performances, averaging 11.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.2 steals in 28.6 minutes per game. Andrews got to the line more than five times per game in Orlando, shooting 77 percent from there, and NBA veterans broadcasting his games (Greg Anthony, Vince Carter) noted his ability to get into the lane and create plays both for himself and teammates. Andrews must be a combo guard to earn a look from the NBA, and he took a big first step in that direction in Orlando.
There is the pressure associated with being the son of a former NBA player. For Cole Anthony, that means following in Greg Anthony’s large footsteps. Cole faces the pressure of being hailed as the next great New York City prospect, a title that comes with plenty of potential pratfalls, and being ranked near the top of his class nationally. Pressure of being the first freshman to start at point guard from Day 1 at his high school, Archbishop Molloy in Queens, in more than three decades.
