This just in from our friend Benjamin Hochman of The Denver Post. Nuggets' center Chris Andersen may be the target of an extortion attempt. The Birdman's lawyer just released the following statement:
"A female fan in 2010 mailed Mr. Andersen multiple letters and included several photos in which she was scantily clad. Chris and this woman communicated with each other and in 2011, this woman, who represented herself as 21 years of age, flew to Colorado, showing her required identification. After leaving Colorado, she became upset at his lack of interest. In 2012, she threatened to retaliate if he did not provide financial remuneration. "
