Dwyane Wade (CHI), Rick Ross, Dan Marino, Udonis Haslem – What do they have in common? They’re all Miami legends; a 90s tough guy transported to this new, “no-more-hand-checking” era, UD is an authentic UnderDOG* who played a key role in shaping Miami’s championship culture; a beloved member of the HEAT organization, Haslem epitomizes leadership and toughness in the locker room; these days, Haslem’s stats are mainly confined to inspirational speeches & wisdom imparted on younger players, though Coach Erik Spoelstra occasionally summons the 3-time champ for steady minutes – UD’s still available to hit open Js & take a few charges; #heatlifer – UD is a strong candidate to have his #40 retired someday
