Justin Anderson, who turns 24 on Nov. 19, is actually among the older players on the 76ers roster. He began his career two years ago when he was drafted No. 21 by the Dallas Mavericks. He credits the older veterans in Dallas with helping him get adjusted to the NBA lifestyle, and that’s a big part of what he’s hoping to achieve in Philadelphia. “The best thing that happened to me was being drafted by a team like Dallas, with so many veterans that they had. It helped me understand the NBA game much faster than a lot of other rookies. It helped me learn how to take care of my body, be a good teammate, it helped me learn the game,” Anderson told Basketball Insiders. “I just try to bring everything I learned from those guys and try to help in as many ways as I can from a personal standpoint off the court, and on the court. I think I’ve been doing a good job of it and guys will respond to it.”
