Christopher Claus Andersen (born July 7, 1978) is an American professional basketball player who is currently a free agent. He last played for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Nicknamed "Birdman", Andersen was born in Long Beach, California, grew up in Iola, Texas, and played one year at Blinn College. Andersen began his professional career in the Chinese Basketball Association and the American minor leagues. He then played in the NBA for the Denver Nuggets and the New Orleans Hornets. He received a two-year ban from the NBA in 2006 for violating the league's drug policy, but was reinstated on March 4, 2008, and re-signed with the Hornets the next day.

He is the only Blinn student to ever play in the NBA.
