In the wake of his signing a fresh new contract with the Miami Heat, forward Chris Andersen flew his tattoos and fetching fiancee to Taiwan for a brief vacation this week.

Birdman isn’t unfamiliar with the Far East. He started his pro career in China in 1999 before going to the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Andersen’s balls-to-the-walls style of play often provided the Heat with a spark off the bench during the recent run for the NBA championship.

Andersen re-upped with the Heat in July, tweeting in his word-saving way: “Feels good to be stayin’ in Miami!”
