Birdman, Birdman!; a HIGH-flying, heavily tatted center w/ an aerodynamically sound mohawk, Chris Andersen was instrumental during Miami‘s title run in 2013 – Birdman caught lobs, hedged out on PnR switches, and rolled hard to the basket each and every time; these days, Bird is more ‘Chris Andersen’ but he’s a solid option to turn the tides of a game with effort on the inside (still capable of sending back shots and working the glass in spot action); once missed 37 dunks in a row during the Dunk Contest…look it up; JUNIOR college success story; out for the rest of 2016-17 (torn ACL)
