Video: Chris "Birdman" Andersen Is Either the Best or Worst TV Guest of All Time

The Heat have plenty of camera-ready, media-polished personalities. Chris "Birdman" Andersen is not one of them. He was a guest on the Fox Sports post-game show last night and either gave one of the best or worst interviews of all time, depending on your preference for awkwardness.

"The losing is over," notes Jason Jackson.

"What?" replied Birdman.

"Why did the losing streak end this evening?" Jackson reiterates.

"Because we won," replies a stone-faced, monotone Birdman.

"I know that. Why did you win?"

"Um, I don't know."

Is there any chance Andersen is related to director Wes Anderson? Because his delivery would certainly fit nicely in one of his films.

Considering LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh have more charisma between them than most sports teams have over a decade, it's actually kind of somehow refreshing if not hilarious to see a Heat player so uncomfortable on camera.
