Justin Anderson: As far as the vibe around the team, it’s been phenomenal and it all starts with Joel [Embiid] – with his talent and his ability to be a great teammate. He’s been incredible… I’m sure you saw the stuff [with Hassan Whiteside] – the trash talk and the jokes. But the coolest thing about that was when everyone on the team plane saw what happened, we all had his back. We were like, “Yeah, Jo! Go at him! Don’t back down! We believe you’re the best big man in the league and you have to show that every night!” Us having his back in moments like that is important and cool.
Justin Anderson: He never talks about how he’s made it. He’s always talking about how much work he still has to do and how much he still needs to improve. That mentality is what separates him and makes him great. I’ve never been around a player like that. I’d say Dirk [Nowitzki] is the closest comparison in terms of being great while also being humble, hungry and doing everything for the betterment of the team.
Justin Anderson: I think there are still things that the league hasn’t seen from me. I think I’m a very, very good shooter. All summer, I’ve been working on my shot every day and getting up a lot of reps. [The coaching staff] believes in me as a shooter. I also believe that I’m a Top 10 defender in this league; I have that confidence in myself. I want to take over defensively and have that reputation and get that respect. Like I said before, I want to be a major piece of this puzzle.
Anderson continued: “He has the mentality of a champion, and everything he does is for the betterment of the team. That’s the coolest part of having him as a friend and having him as a teammate – he’s so unselfish. He always says, ‘I gotta keep working.’ He always says, ‘I can’t let the city down.’ He never talks about how he’s made it. He’s always talking about how much work he still has to do and how much he still needs to improve.”
