A RING FOR THE BIRDMAN







I was mildly rooting for the Spurs to prevail in the NBA Championship series, but was also thinking that it would be nice if Chris Andersen, the Birdman, could get a ring. Andersen is not a starter in the NBA, but he brings a tremendous amount of energy to the game, especially as a shot-blocker.  He destroys the adage that white men can't jump.  As you can read in this bio, the Bird has been through a lot - I don't know if he is a nice fellow or not, but given his previous circumstances, I felt it was a nice ending to an otherwise very trying year for the Birdman. Kudos to Chris.

Can they add Birdman to the Audubon Society list? Maybe Birdman can join the circus after he leaves the NBA.

I really do appreciate professional sports talent and accomplishment and want to congratulate the Birdman. However, being a freak is mostly what he will be remembered for, like Dennis Rodman. When I think of Rodman, first image that pops into mind is a picture of him in a wedding dress with makeup and earrings. It's pathetic and pitiful.

Bizzy - you make a good point, but IMHO, I do not think that the Birdman is in the same league of freak as Rodman - kinda like the NBA versus the D league :-)

Just noted that the Birdman signed with the Heat for a year at $1.7 million [a real bargain according to the newspaper]. I guess Andersen can go low since he will still get $5 million next year from the Nuggets.
