Udonis Haslem plans to return for 20th season with Heat
Posted on August 23, 2022
Heat mainstay would become the third player to suit up for a single team across 20 seasons, joining Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowiztki.
The Heat’s contending cores may alter every few seasons, but “The OG” remains a mainstay.
Udonis Haslem revealed Sunday at his youth basketball camp that he’s intending to return to the court for a 20th season in Miami.
“I have decided to follow through on what me and my father had talked about, and I will finish what I started,” Haslem said. “I will play 20 years. I will play this year.
“It won’t be the same; it won’t be as easy. But the goal still remains the same: Win. Win a championship. Leave it on the line. Hold your head high when it’s all over. I’ve got one more in me for pops. I’ve got one more in me for the city. I’ve got one more in me for the team.”
Originally signed as an undrafted free agent in August 2003, the Heat stalwart spent a half-decade starring alongside Dwyane Wade during the Heat’s initial championship run in 2006, before transitioning to a bench role during the “Heatles” run of four straight NBA Finals and two championships (2010-14). Haslem hasn’t made more than 16 appearances in any of the last six seasons, but remains a crucial culture-setter for the Heat.
