Former Orlando Magic forward Ryan Anderson, the Most Improved Player of the Year for the 2011-12 season, will be competing in the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout.
Magic fans remember Anderson as a deadeye shooter who spaced the floor for Dwight Howard, and helped the Magic be one of the best three point shooting teams throughout what we can now refer to as the “Dwight Howard era.”
Anderson is at 4/1 odds to win the contest, which I handicapped for Maddux Sports. With no Magic players in the contest this season, it should prove worthwhile to root for Anderson. His time here in Orlando was memorable, and he left on good terms.
Good luck, Ryan.
