Michael Levin Anderson (born March 23, 1966 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a former basketball player for Drexel University, the NBA, Spain's professional Liga ACB, the Continental Basketball Association, the Greek A1 League and the Turkish Basketball League.

Anderson was a high school star at George Washington Carver High School of Engineering & Science in Philadelphia. At Drexel, he averaged over 19 points per game during his college career, and led the Dragons to their first-ever NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship appearance in 1986, where they lost to eventual national champion, Louisville. This game was notable because Anderson was playing against familiar local foes, Milt Wagner and Billy Thompson who played high school ball on Camden's nationally ranked team. That year Anderson was named to the UPI and Sporting News honorable mention All-America teams. Anderson also led the Dragons to an upset of a David Robinson-led Navy team in the Palestra in 1987, one of the biggest wins in school history.

Anderson would become the first Drexel basketball player to make the roster of an NBA team. He played for the San Antonio Spurs during the 1989 NBA season, after being drafted by the Indiana Pacers in the 3rd round (23rd pick) of the 1988 NBA Draft.
