Any Orlando Magic fans with a spare $35,000 might want to head over to Facebook Marketplace. A listing billed as a “personal complete collection of Nick Anderson” popped up Tuesday on the e-commerce site. Some of the items include Anderson’s 1986 Illinois Mr. Basketball trophy, his 1988-89 NCAA Final Four ring and his Final Four MVP award. The sellers, a Central Florida couple who agreed to talk on the condition of anonymity, said the items were housed in a storage unit that once belonged to Anderson’s ex-wife. She stopped paying the bill and once the unit went up for auction, they snagged it last Wednesday.
When they learned about a burglary that took place in February at Parramore’s Wells’Built Museum of African American History and Culture, where Magic memorabilia was stolen, the team quickly sprang into action and lent a helping hand. Although extremely disheartened about the incident, the Magic saw an opportunity to turn lemons into lemonade. Not only did they help repair the damage from the break-in, the Magic replaced the stolen items, which included Nick Anderson and Otis Smith jerseys and sneakers, with even more mementos.
With assistance from the Orlando Magic and Florida Blue, more kids are aware of the benefits of reading and storytelling. They partnered up to celebrate the Orange County Library Systems (OCLS) Summer Reading Program, which helps engage local students in literacy and learning. Magic Community Ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw and STUFF the Magic Mascot were also on hand to participate and encourage the children during Saturday’s event at Orlando’s downtown library. “We can go back in my time how my parents and my grandparents would tell you how important it is to pick up a book, pick up a newspaper and stay sharp in reading,” Anderson said. “That still applies to young people today. I encourage them to pick up a book, go to a library, sit down and read.”
It’s been 32 years now for Nick Anderson, trying to put distance between himself and the ghost of Benji Wilson. He can’t do it. Benji haunts him in his dreams. Benji still brings him to tears when he talks about him. And now, Benji’s face stares back at him when Anderson thinks about Jonathan Mills. Mills was another basketball star who recently became shooting victim No. 2,292 of Chicago’s random mayhem. Anderson was watching WGN in Chicago when he heard the news about Mills. Anderson called his older son, 26-year-old Josh. “What’s up with that kid who played ball?” Anderson asked Josh. “That’s my boy,” Josh said. “We play together all the time.”
