With LeBron James heading back to Ohio, the Miami Heat will have a different make-up for their team in the upcoming 2014-15 NBA season.
One of the players returning from last year’s squad is back-up center Chris “Birdman” Andersen and when recently asked by Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel about why he chose to return to Miami, he provided this response:
“It was definitely the loyalty from the fans and from the team,” said the Texas native who signed a two-year, $10.3 million contract with the Heat last month. “That had a big part of it. And it’s matter of me ending my career in a place that I’d be happy at and am familiar with.”
We wish Birdman well in this upcoming NBA season!
