Kenneth Alexander "Kenny" Satterfield (born April 10, 1981) is an American professional basketball player, formerly in the NBA. He played for the Cincinnati Bearcats beginning in 1999. In 2001, after a successful sophomore season, he bolted for the NBA, being drafted 53rd overall (2nd round) by the Dallas Mavericks of the 2001 NBA Draft. He played for the Denver Nuggets (2001–2002) and the Philadelphia 76ers (December 2002–2003).

During his time with the Nuggets, he coined the nickname "Birdman" for teammate Chris Andersen.[1]

Satterfield posted NBA career averages of 4.3 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists. Satterfield a.k.a. "Serious Satellite" is also a well known streetball player on the basketball courts of the New York City summer leagues.[2]

After his NBA venture, Satterfield had a stint with the now defunct NBDL's Fayetteville Patriots. He also played abroad[3] in France, Greece, Venezuela and Lebanon, with Al Hikmeh Sagesse (in 2005-06), which he left in early 2006 without notice, and Riyadi Beirut.

In 2010, he played for the Albany Legends of the IBL. On April 30, 2010, he achieved a triple-double with 13 points, 12 rebounds, and 13 assists in a 100-106 loss to the Tacoma Tide.[4] On May 22, 2010, he put up 31 points and 18 assists in a 142-124 win over the Holland Blast.[5] He finished the season leading the team in points and assists. The Legends went on to win the 2010 IBL Championship.
