Barry Greenstein, who produced the movie and has known Anderson for many years, told MarketWatch, “The only person I’ve ever seen him buy a meal for is my daughter.” He also said he was recently in Atlantic City with Anderson and offered to give him some money to gamble with, “and he wouldn’t gamble one dime.” Anderson, for all his spending and generosity, has always been reluctant to put his money toward anything he doesn’t understand. Even when he was making millions in the NBA, he was nervous about letting anyone invest his money, he told MarketWatch.
The “walking mistake” treats the scars — being sexually abused as a child, the 2013 DUI which cost him his job as a high school basketball coach, his multiple infidelities — like souvenirs, collected and showcased to remind him who he never wants to be again. “If you’re gonna tell the world that this is what you’re about now, and then they see me next week at a strip club with bottles, and walking sideways out of there, people are gonna laugh that you’re living fake, and that’s not me,” Anderson told The Post this week. “This is good pressure to better yourself. I can’t be going back and doing some nonsense.
He still “lives comfortably” and “everything is taken care of” in what he describes as a “high, middle class” setting in Pembroke Pines, Fla., surrounded by far more than he hoped to have growing up. “Did I lose a lot? No. I spent it. I didn’t get robbed. These were decisions that I made,” Anderson said. “Your family can be your worst enemy. Rest in peace, my mother, she spent a lot of my money, but that’s your mother. I might’ve done it a little different, but I would’ve spoiled her right now again. She wanted to live a carefree life, and I was able to do that for 20 years. The kids are a blessing, but it was very expensive.
Life after basketball mostly has been spent running alongside it. He coached in the CBA, and in the trampoline-infused SlamBall, before making an “ignorant” appearance playing in front of Kim Jong-un in North Korea. He currently coaches his son, Kenneth, on an AAU travel team, and shuttles him and his stepdaughter, Tiana, back and forth to school. Anderson also runs a basketball clinic in Tampa, and wants to become a life coach and start a mentorship program.
The film follows the high school basketball prodigy and former NBA All-Star as he comes to terms with his past and looks to move forward. Abramorama has acquired the North American rights to Mr. Chibbs, a documentary about former NBA All-Star Kenny Anderson. The film, which premiered at DOC NYC in November, follows Anderson — a high school basketball prodigy who went on to play for Georgia Tech and the New Jersey Nets — as he comes to terms with haunting memories from his past and tries to move forward, grappling with his own identity.
