A high school All-Star in the state of Kentucky, Anderson played college basketball at the Ohio State University and the University of Kentucky where he helped them win the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship. 
In his professional career, Anderson was first selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers from 1997 to 1999 and would be the last Cavalier to wear #23 before LeBron James. Anderson continued his career with the LA Clippers, Portland Trail Blazers, and Miami where the Heat won the 2006 NBA Finals to give Anderson his first championship.  

After retiring from the game in 2008, Anderson decided to come back home to make an impact on young people. The mission of the Stamina Foundation is to empower youth and young adults with the resources and life skills they need to follow their dreams.

Anderson and Naväge Nasal Care 

Like nearly 3-million other Naväge users, Derek appreciates the benefits of Naväge Nasal Care and the impact it has had on his life.

"I suffered from severe allergies for decades and would literally sit in the house most of April and May. I tried Claritin, Benadryle, and even allergy eye drops but nothing worked. After using Navage I can FINALLY go out all year long and enjoy 12 months instead of just 10 which is life-changing! I can travel  without having to cancel meetings. I can even stay outside longer to play with my children now because I use Naväge daily."
