Chris Andersen ‘Birdman’

Former NBA player Chris Andersen was a high energy, hustle player that helped add depth to a team with theĀ 10-15 minutes he offered coming off the bench.

Andersen was given his nickname ‘Birdman’ during the 2002 NBA summer league by his teammates Junior Harrington and Kenny Satterfield.

Andersen embraced the ‘Birdman’ nickname and would often celebrate after dunks or blocking a shot by outstretching his long wingspan in mimicking a bird taking flight.
