Robert Horry won how many rings, doesn't make him a hall of famer. Especially if Anderson can pick and choose what clubs he goes to. Hardly a magnet. So overrated especially in his later years, if he was so good how come he didn't play longer in the nba, give him credit, knew he was average so cashed in over in Europe. Every Olympics or world champs gets shown up by better players.

Sure, he may not be in the NBA, however I can't see him rated as only average anon! A fair margin above average in anyone's language I would think...
