Chris Andersen Dunk Prompts Amazing Call By Kevin Harlan

by at . Comments

Miami Heat reserve forward Chris Andersen, a.k.a. the Birdman, threw down a sick put-back dunk last night in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

TNT play-by-play man Kevin Harlan was excited to say the least.

Following a Shane Battier miss, Andersen swooped in for the dunk, after which Harlan exclaimed "Ohh! Here comes the Birdman! Flapping his wings!"

"Soaring in for a sweet flush! When you're aerodynamically designed with that hairdo, you can do those kinds of things, with that sweet mohawk. It helps him fly!"

Broadcast partner Reggie Miller couldn't help but laugh.

Andersen finished with 10 points and 7 rebounds in 16 minutes of action in Miami's 110-87 victory over Milwaukee in Game 1 of the seven-game series.

Teammate LeBron James - who had a game-high 27 - was also the subject of a memorable Harlan call in 2008. LeBron has no regard for human life!!!
