The Miami Heat seem to be on their way to another deep run in the postseason and that has everything to do with the way their roster is contracted. While they have the Big 3 as their marquee headliners, the Heat have been able to fill in the gaps and have been able to find guys to put around them that click and get the job done.

One of those guys is Chris Andersen — otherwise known by his alter ego ‘The Birdman’. While they picked him up on buyout wire in 2013, the Heat have helped Birdman find a home in South Beach and in return he’s helped them win a title and position themselves for another one.

It’s plays like this that make Heat fans adore that very colorful Chris Andersen.
