Birdman’s celebrity redneck hunting show… he’s starting it

Nov 11, 2011, 10:20 AM EDT


Nuggets shot blocking machine Chris Andersen is not your typical NBA player — in a league with inked-up players, the Birdman’s tattoos turn your head. And blind you.

So we should have guessed that when SLAM magazine asked him what he was up to this summer (at a Converse event), the response was going to be a little different (via Ball Don’t Lie).

“I’ve been training and whatnot about basketball, but also I’m trying to start a hunting show right now. So I’m out in the woods with Converse.

SLAM: A hunting show?

“It’s gonna be called “Willie B and the Good Ole Boys.” Basically with all my friends I grew up with down in Texas, and it’s going to be celebrity rednecks that do crazy, dumb stuff…”

Look, I’m a city boy that doesn’t hunt. But if you’re going to ask me if I’ll watch Andersen and Ted Nugent or Goose Gossage or Karl Malone stalking some game while throwing back cans of PBR, I’m in. I don’t even care who Willie B is, I’ll still watch. My only question is, can you really sneak up on a deer with that neck tattoo? Doesn’t it kind of stand out in the woods?

If the lockout lasts much longer, at least we’ve got Andersen’s second career lined up.

    Figured his drug history would prevent gun ownership

    The only Willie D I know of, is from the rap group The Geto Boys.

      I wonder if it is Geto Boys’ Willie D? Bird said it’s in Texas and Willie D is from Houston. And the name of the show sounds like a play on words Geto boys/ …Good Ole Boys. Hmmm

    Deer are color blind.
