Dude was done by the time Lebron left, and he'd been done a while as a legitimate rotational player worth touting. Let's not act like Miami had prime Haslem in 2014.
    Udonis was absolute trash the day Bron arrived

    exactly my answer

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    You realized he was injured that entire year and played 13 games before returning during the Bulls series, right?

    Doesn't that just reinforce the sentiment that he wasn't performing....? And he was virtually the same the year before lol

    A guy being injured is very different than a guy not performing lol.

    And maybe he doesn't understand what Udonis actually did as a basketball player? He wasn't a big scorer. Udonis made hustle plays, was a good rebounder, very good defender, and could hit a consistent midrange jumper at a time where not many bigs would do that. So no, he didn't put up gaudy numbers. There were plenty of times though in those first two big 3 years where he was the third best player on the court for Miami, when Bosh wouldn't show up.

    Coming from a Bulls fan, Haslem was an awesome glue guy who did the little things. Perfect for that team. Got under the skin of opponents too.

    Which means he was trash. That’s a trash season. If an injury caused him to be trash so be it. But he was trash, and his stats went down from there. What are we debating?

    Meta World Peace, Trevor Ariza, Iggy, when I think of “good” glue guys. Harlem wasn’t awful his first couple years. But he was trash when Bron got there. For instance, someone who gets crapped on a lot for not being good is Tristan Thompson...he was waaaaaaaaay better than Haslem was when he was with Bron. Haslem was garbage at that time.

    If Lebron can win it with one star instead of 2, then it would be more impressive when he had Kyrie/Love and Wade/Bosh in his championship years. Even though I do give him credit for his big 3 team beating your big 3 team. Lebron legacy is still missing something, if he wins a ring with the Lakers, who do have a talent to make a run, then he will even evolve more with his legacy with how he will be viewed by a wider audience.
