Bloomberg's Scott Soshnick reported last week that NJ Nets Allstar Kenny Anderson will become the head coach of the David Posnack Jewish Day School in Davie, Florida. The school has 120 kids.

This will not be the first NBA allstar to take the reigns of a Jewish High School basektball team – couple others come to mind:



  • Joe Jellybean Bryant (Kobe's dad) coached the Akiba Hebrew Academy Highschool team in suburban Philadelphia
  • Lamont Carr coached in Boca Raton Jewish Day School- the story was made into a big screen Disney Chanukah flick “Full Court Miracle” (must see)

Mazal Tov Kenny Anderson! Can't wait to see you at the Yeshiva University Red Sarachek Tournament!
