Miami Heat's Birdman finds a nest
The Birdman has finally landed in a cage fit for an NBA champion. Miami Heat star Chris “Birdman” Andersen, who signed a two-year, $2.8 million deal with the team over the summer, plunked down $1.89 million for a five-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion in the Collins Acres area of Pinecrest. Andersen obtained a $417,000 mortgage for the one-acre property on Southwest 107th Street, not too far from troubled NBA star Lamar Odom’s crib. It’s got a lighted tennis court, heated free-form pool and separate guest house. The main house, 7,505 square feet with marble floors throughout, includes a large living room, super-sized family room with a fireplace, a well-equipped entertaining sized kitchen, and a master suite with enough room for a gym. Said Brian Shapiro Forster, the listing agent: “Pinecrest is a perfect place for Birdman. Where else could he get an acre with a lot of privacy and with a lit tennis court that he can make into a full-sized basketball court?”
