“It is a tough thing when you’re getting zero credit, especially when you’re making a lot of money and you’re getting two shots with like two seconds left on the shot clock and you miss them and you’re 0-for-2 from 3 and everyone says that I suck,” Anderson admitted. “… This is the greatest part about not being in the NBA right now because I can just unload on how much that pisses me off. People don’t want to hear it. I made a lot of money, I’ve lived a great life. I’m so blessed, I love it, but the game’s not fun when you have to just stand there and you’re not involved at all. You want to be involved, you want to be a part of the offense.”
Anderson played sparingly in that postseason, seeing just 28 minutes of action in the seven-game series the Rockets lost to the Warriors in the Western Conference finals. His playing time was cut drastically, at least in part due to the Rockets’ switching style that exposed him defensively, which Anderson made a joke about at his own expense. “And, I’m not a good defender either, so I’d always have to switch on Steph Curry, and he’d make buckets on me and then I’m the idiot,” Anderson said.
