Battle of the Birdmen

By Paul Knepper

Denver Nuggets forward Chris Andersen and former WWE wrestler  Koko B. Ware are two of the most colorful athletes in their sports and both are affectionately referred to as “The Birdman.” Which of these professional athletes is most fly? Below is a head-to-head comparison.

Athletic Success

B. Ware’s popularity exceeded his success in the squared circle, though he received the ultimate honor for his athletic achievements when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009.

With his long wingspan and great leaping ability Chris Andersen is one of the best shot blockers in the NBA and a key component of a Nuggets team that won over 50 games in each of the previous two seasons.

Style

Koko always looked stylish entering the ring in bright baggy pants and sunglasses, though it was his yellow macaw Frankie who turned the ladies’ heads.

Confined by the NBA’s strict uniform codes, Andersen expresses himself through a dazzling array of tattoos across his arms, upper torso and neck, and an early 80’s punk-rock mohawk.

Claim to the Name

Koko used to flap his arms as he the entered the ring with Frankie on his shoulder to the tune of Morris Day and The Time’s “The Bird.”

Before soaring at the 2005 Slam Dunk Contest Andersen announced, “It’s time for the birdman to fly.” He has wing tattoos on his biceps and celebrates emphatic dunks by flapping his hands in a flying motion.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual
    appeal. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me
    on Safari. Exceptional Blog!

    Independent movie companies are demonstrating that the major studios no more will be the lone judges of the things the public choose. Should you add to that distribution on the Internet and, press, web pages, from chat to entire motion pictures. It’s a completely new environment. A lot of it beneficial, some not.
