The 48-year-old is "doing well" in his recovery, according to someone who spoke with the Daily News.

He earned a spot on the Eastern Conference All-Stars in 1994 for the New Jersey Nets.

Anderson played 14 seasons in the National Basketball Association, including a brief stop in Portland from 1996-98 where he averaged 15.8 points, 6.5 assists and 3.9 rebounds with the Blazers. Anderson graduated from Archbishop Molloy High School in Queens in 1989 and held the state scoring record at the time with 2,621 points. He eventually chose to play at Georgia Tech over Duke, Syracuse and North Carolina.

But shortly after, he returned and bought the rest of the girls' stock, to the tune of $540, just to get them out of the cold. But a man in SC recently went the extra mile for the little girls who sell the cookies.

Andrew Maraniss of The Undefeated just wrote an excellent article about Anderson's life now.

The former NY high school legend now serves as the head coach at Fisk University, an NAIA program in Nashville. "His wife, Natasha, has been with him in the hospital".

Natasha released a public statement Tuesday afternoon.

His friend Ron Harper, a 5-time NBA Champion with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, offered words of comfort via social media.
