The Birdman Chris Anderson

How did this

Become this?

Chris “The Birdman” Andersen is one of the most entertaining players in the NBA. Not only is he just fun to look at with his tattoos and crazy mohawk on steroids, he plays harder than most superstars dream of playing. He does this for one reason, he is truly grateful to be in the NBA.

Undrafted after one year at Binn Junior College in 1999, he has played in China and then for 3 NBDL teams before finally making to the NBA in 2001 signing with the Denver Nuggets. He entered the the 2005 NBA dunk contest and in a interview claimed, “It’s time for the Birdman to fly.” Then things began to turn for the worse. Following the 2006 NBA Chris received a 2 year ban from the league for drug abuse. Andersen has never come out and said what drug he was using when he broke the rule.
