Chris Andersen’s obscene gesture for those who bring up 2005 dunk contest
Former NBA journeyman Chris Andersen last saw action in the association two seasons ago as a bit player for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Nonetheless, he has not lost one big of his ferocious, no-nonsense attitude as proven by a recent clip making the rounds on social media.
Thanks to our friends at Ballislife.com, we have been treated to a reminder of how awesome the “Birdman” once was and still is.
That is one HUGE finger!
This is what NBA Champion Chris “Birdman” Anderson has to say about people who criticize @TheBig3 or bring up the 2005 NBA Dunk Contest.

Not one to let others influence his style, Andersen has always been an out-of-the-box type of character during his time in the NBA. In a career that lasted 15 years, the 6-foot-10 big man made a reputation for himself as a bruiser who refused to conform with the norm.
One of his more memorable contributions to the league was his participation in the 2005 NBA All-Star Dunk Contest. Unfortunately for Andersen, it will forever remain in the history books for all the wrong reasons.
Andersen infamously missed all 32 of his dunk attempts in what is considered one of the worst performances in the history of the Dunk Contest. It was so bad the league had to rethink the format of the competition.
For those interested, here is Andersen’s unforgettable feat in all of its glory:
Andersen has nothing to say to his haters, but has a very particular gesture he’d like to send out, especially to those who bring up the 2005 Dunk Contest.
Love him or hate him, the 2013 NBA Champion’s contributions to the sport still absolutely count for something.
