Chris "Birdman" Andersen has been known for his mohawk and tattoos. Now that he is without one of those signature features, he will be a little tougher for the average fan to recognize.

That's a risky move to get rid of a hairstyle during a season, especially when the Heat won the title with him sporting the mohawk.
