Karma is real people. I actually believe that. Let’s say you steal a piece of chocolate from the kid sitting next to you in your 3rd grade math class. You chomp it down, wipe your mouth, and continue handling your workload of addition and subtraction problems.

Now, you may have thought you escaped that caper “scot free”, but 20 years later (at your new corporate job) when you’re looking for a snack during lunch break–don’t be surprised when that Twix bar gets stuck in the vending machine and you lose a dollar (yes, completely “Costanza’d”).

That’s karma people. It all evens out in the wash, and the fact is, you never know when it will come back and bite you (pun intended). Well, perhaps karma paid her visit to Chris “Birdman” Andersen, last night. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the “Birdman”, let me get you caught up to speed. Here’s a quick background check:

In ’03, Andersen entered the league (and Denver Nuggets), a relatively tidy 6’10 caucasian male. The next year, Andersen participated in the slam dunk contest, “Jersey Shore’d” UP, with his hair blown the F**K OUT. He lost miserably.

By ’05, and his stint with New Orleans, he began his spectrum shift towards “white trash”. And then he was banned from the league for two years (simmering into irrelevancy).

In ’08, he returned to Denver–with a mohawk, and full body suit of ink (by now he was essentially the mayor of “white trash”). After a few seasons, he then (once again), simmered into irrelevancy.

 

In short, the dude is epic. If you need anymore evidence, go “YouTube” the Heat’s rendition of the “Harlem Shake”. Exclusively watch “Birdman”. The defense rests. Alright. Back to the karma thing. Last summer, Andersen got into some shiesty trouble with “Douglas County’s Finest”. Deputies investigated his home, in search of child pornography.

You swear, Birdman? C’mon dude. Anyways, these allegations seemed to settle down, as Andersen was eventually signed to a series of 10-day contracts before signing on with Miami for the remainder of the ’13 season. While the rest of the world may have apparently gotten over Andersen looking at pictures of kids being violated on the internet–karma, on the other hand, has certainly not. Enter Paul George.

With the facial Birdman received Friday night, highlight reels all over the nation got blessed with a new favorite clip (or .GIF). Thank you karma. Dear Chris “Birdman” Andersen, you got SONNED. You were violated, like a little boy, and now its all over the internet. That .GIF might as well be child pornography. The takeaway message here? If karma doesn’t dunk on you, Paul George will.
