Did Chris Andersen believe, when he signed with the Heat, that everything would work this well?
“I didn’t know what to make of it,” Andersen said. “I just come in, take care of business. Taking care of business is what Birdman does.”
But this seamlessly?
“You’re the one looking in,” Andersen said, smiling. “I’m not the one to boast. You know the numbers.”
Here there are: in games that Andersen has played, Miami was 36-3 entering Sunday’s matchup with Chicago.
“You know, the organization allows me to be the player that I am,” Andersen said. “That kind of leeway, there’s a large area of confidence for me to have….. It just inspired me to get back in the gym, and work even harder and work even more and keep pushing myself to be better.”
