The man that changes the dunk contest forever is back. The NBA has decided to reinstate former Hornets big man Chris Andersen from his drug suspension. Anderson left his mark on the NBA before being kicked out of the league in March 2006. He is the reason that the dunk contest now needs a time limit.
“Known as "Birdman" for his high-flying dunks, Andersen was a favorite of Hornets fans. He is best known for his performance in the NBA's dunk contest in 2005, when he needed eight tries to finish his first dunk,’’ according to espn.com.
It’s good to see the Birdman flying high again.
