PINECREST — Former Miami Heat-star Chris Andersen has listed his Pinecrest home for sale.
No surprise, considering Birdman has been bouncing from team to team since leaving the Heat last year after one NBA Championship alongside LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The tatted out Bridman’s been with the Memphis Grizzlies, Cleveland Cavaliers and Charlotte Hornets.
Now, the California-born center wants to make a quick score on his way out of town: His 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom, 7,629-square-foot pad at 5826 SW 107th Street hit the market on April 7 for $4.55 million.
It has already been reduced more than 10 percent to $3.94 million, but if sells at that price, Birdman will double his money: He paid $1.89 million for the property in 2013, just months after he became the last piece of the Heat’s championship puzzle that year.
The house was built in 1995 and has all the things a 6-foot-10 NBA-er would need: 10-foot ceilings, a master suite that overlooks lighted tennis and basketball courts and a intense security system. The pictures online show the house totally empty, so it looks like Birdman has already flown away!
Andersen’s gritty play on defense and occasional offensive bursts were often credited for giving the Heat the extra push it needed when the Big 3 faltered.
Off-the-court, the tatted out, Mohawk-wearing Andersen was a fan favorite.
