“Birdman” Chris Andersen makes cameo on HBO’s “Ballers”

9 Comments

I’ll be honest, I haven’t watched HBO’s vehicle for The Rock, “Ballers.” It’s about the transition of a former NFL player (Dwayne Johnson) to life as a mentor/manager trying to guide younger players after his NFL career ended. That pretty much sums up what I know.

Well, that and it has gotten a lot of cameos from NFL players.

And now an NBA one — Chris Andersen from the Heat. The Birdman and his ink tower over this scene, which is a pretty extended cameo (hat tip to Eye on Basketball).

Note: Due to language this is NSFW. If you are offended by that kind of thing, do not push play.

I love the insult they use to get under Birdman’s skin (and tats) is “LeBron made the right choice” heading back to Cleveland. And I love Andersen’s reaction.

Andersen is pretty good in this. If I had to guess, his next role will be in an episode of Chris Kaman’s reality show. From there, I expect he could land pretty much anywhere except Rachel Ray’s show.
