Chris “Birdman” Andersen perfect 13-for-13 against Pacers (VIDEO)

May 27, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

Chris Andersen was 4-for-4 on Sunday night against the Pacers. You can see the shots in that video.

That makes him 13-for-13 in the Eastern Conference Finals. He has now hit 16 shots in a row and is 31-of-37 in these playoffs. It is an amazing run. (By the way, he has a postseason PER of 32.)

Yes, almost all of his shots are right around the rim if not outright dunks, but with a 7’2″ Roy Hibbert around (and Joakim Noah with the Bulls last round) guys usually miss some in tight as shots are contested. But it’s a credit to the Birdman playing within himself — he makes smart cuts to the rim, doesn’t do the things he knows he shouldn’t do, and hustles. He has been a fantastic pickup by the Heat and played himself into a nice new contract next season.

    Yeh that story seemed to get hushed up pretty well – what ended up happening to the police inquiry into his computer and certain purported images held there?

    • brutl - May 27, 2013 at 11:08 AM

      In May, police searched Andersen’s home and computer involving alleged reports of child pornography. Andersen was never charged with anything, and no one else who lived in his home was either.

      “This had to do with an individual who represented herself as legal age and then some, and by the way, is and was at legal age.”

      reading is GOOOD

      Nothing. The person who accused him was charged with extortion.

      I know this is difficult for the illiterate comment makers, but don’t believe everything you read.

      • saint1997 - May 28, 2013 at 4:10 AM

        Illiterate? Are you really in a position to make that call? It is easy to hide behind the relative anonymity of the Internet and spew hateful rhetoric behind the guise of “Pantsfreezone” however maybe think before you start insulting people you don’t know. Gormless fool.

      • pantsfreezone - May 28, 2013 at 1:37 PM

        Maybe read around before making a comment and you won’t be lumped in with the masses.

    • Kurt Helin - May 27, 2013 at 2:57 PM

      Nothing. It wasn’t hushed up, police investigated and basically found a blackmail scheme aimed at Andersen. No charges were ever filed — police don’t mess around on those kinds of charges but they found nothing. I’m not going to lay it all out here, but a little research and you can find his side of the story.

      • badintent - May 28, 2013 at 2:51 AM

        Was this blackmail scheme like the one that David Letterman had to deal with several interns and a plot to extort money from him ?

      • saint1997 - May 28, 2013 at 4:07 AM

        Thanks for answering a simple question without resorting to condescension Kurt

  2. gmsingh - May 27, 2013 at 9:27 AM

    I don’t Birdman’s scoring is all that impressive. Who would want to come in contact with him? You’d have to take a bath in Drano afterwards.

    • jimmymarlinsfan - May 27, 2013 at 1:31 PM

      You bathe in Drano? That explains your hollow reasoning

      • gmsingh - May 28, 2013 at 8:56 AM

        Your reading comprehension is as stupid as you are stupid.

  3. showtime1911 - May 27, 2013 at 9:29 AM

    He’s a bum and he want be in the league or on the heat next yr.

  4. leahcima1 - May 27, 2013 at 9:32 AM

    Then I suggest you change the channel to something more suitable.

  5. logisticalvoices - May 27, 2013 at 9:32 AM

    According to the Denver Post in January, the investigation still isn’t complete.

  6. gotampabay52 - May 27, 2013 at 9:52 AM

    He is playing aweaome

  7. barkley4life - May 27, 2013 at 10:29 AM

    The trolls are out. You’re on the Internet learn how to use it. He was extorted by a girl who posed as 18+ girl sent pictures etc then they tried to get money from him or go to police.

  8. logisticalvoices - May 27, 2013 at 10:35 AM

    @barkley: I guess the trolls put the drugs in his bloodstream too? I don’t know many guys that actually get kicked out of the NBA for substance abuse. Don’t pretend that the Birdman is clean and everyone is just making stuff up.

    • jimmymarlinsfan - May 27, 2013 at 1:33 PM

      Why do you care if he does drugs?

  9. micknangold - May 27, 2013 at 10:37 AM

    F*** that pedophile.

  10. jrebar88 - May 27, 2013 at 10:41 AM

    Pretty sure they have all been dunks or layups. Is that really shooting the ball?

    • jimmymarlinsfan - May 27, 2013 at 1:34 PM

      Still gotta make sure it goes in…that’s what she said!

    • louhudson23 - May 27, 2013 at 3:26 PM

      Watch the video…clearly not all dunks…and some damn nice work….

  11. lbroberts123 - May 27, 2013 at 10:45 AM

    You’re all a bunch of judgemental A-holes. If anyone of you can honestly say you have never made a bad decision in your life, then you can be condescending towards another person. Yeah he made bad choices. We all have. Stop being a bunch of pricks.

    • jrebar88 - May 27, 2013 at 10:46 AM

      Are we all pedophiles?

      • jimmymarlinsfan - May 27, 2013 at 1:35 PM

        Are you one?

  12. BrownsTown - May 27, 2013 at 10:49 AM

    As much as I’d love to troll Andersen and make a remark of the symbolism about “going 13….,” I can’t. Reading the details, I don’t think it’s fair to call this man a pedophile as that label is reserved for truly the worst people in this world. I’ll call him WT all day and hate on him for playing for the most unlikeable franchise in pro sports history, but I can’t go there with the pedophile stuff…..not fair.

    • jimmymarlinsfan - May 27, 2013 at 1:36 PM

      The most unlikeable franchise in pro sports history? Oh you are a Cleveland fan. At least people care about Miami sports

      • bucrightoff - May 27, 2013 at 2:14 PM

        No they don’t. See fans always arriving late, leaving early, and attendance of aorund 50% capacity unless the team plays .600+ ball. What fans I tell you…

  13. canehouse - May 27, 2013 at 11:27 AM

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! You guys are a riot!

  14. dolphindubs - May 27, 2013 at 1:11 PM

    Pedophile? You all are idiots. The heroin addiction is true, but addicition is addiction all across the board. So throw some hate at others like Jordan who struggled with addiction as well.

    Keep on finding things to try and justify your pathetic hate of the Heat, and the Heat will keep on winning.

    • jrebar88 - May 27, 2013 at 10:44 PM

      Bandwagon fan.

  15. gmsalpha - May 27, 2013 at 2:13 PM

    Birdman has played great for the Heat, period. He has more tattoos than the average NBA player, but others (JR Smith) have neck tattoos, and since no charges were actually brought against him in the internet child porn case, what has he ever done to anyone? I couldn’t find anything on him having 7 or 9 kids by 5 different women. I don’t recall him having been arrested for DUI or DWI. He’s a high energy player that mixes it up and rebounds (looking at you, Bosh Spice!).

    He’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and I doubt I’d get along with the guy personally. But if you have to respect his game. Plus, he started out playing in China and is now a big piece of the Heat’s charge to the championship.

    • gmsalpha - May 27, 2013 at 2:16 PM

      Oh right. He was expelled from the NBA for “drugs of abuse” back in 2006. SMH!

      But otherwise….nevermind.

      • Kurt Helin - May 27, 2013 at 2:42 PM

        Yes, we wouldn’t want to give a guy a second chance after he kicked an addition.

    • badintent - May 28, 2013 at 2:55 AM

      Was that a Scottie Pippen or Shawn Kemp reference ?

  16. bucrightoff - May 27, 2013 at 3:20 PM

    God Bless America. Drug addicts, child predators, murderers…doesn’t matter if you can put the ball in the hole, or throw the football or chase that QB. You can do anything if you have the talent to make up for it.

  17. barkley4life - May 27, 2013 at 3:33 PM

    Seriously Kurt I know commenters help drive the site but the amount of troll morons on here is ridiculous. Hard to take articles serious when you scroll down and it’s your mom this wife that douchebag this….idiots

  18. 13arod - May 27, 2013 at 4:41 PM

    he will get a big contract soon

  19. observingii - May 27, 2013 at 4:56 PM

    Birdman has obviously received a diploma at the Blake Griffin School Of Shooting.
