I think anyone "fluffing" him is doing so in a reminiscing sort of manner. I don't think anyone thinks hes actually still good. Hell, I was arguing on here last year that he stunk and most posters agreed.

But even a few years ago he was a very quality role player. Back in the mid/late 00's I really respected the guy because I like forwards who actually play like forwards. In the paint, defending, rebounding, etc.


Unless I'm missing something, no ones trying to sell him as some sort of good player this year. Hes well past his prime.

Miami doesn't win either championship without Haslem.

Re: Udonis Haslem

Last years is debatable. I think Haslems role there could have been filed by any number of scrappy, washed up vets.

The first championship though? Yea. Without a doubt.

Re: Udonis Haslem

Smithi may be specifically referencing game 4 against you guys, when Haslem hit 4 big J's in the fourth. Everywhere else he wasn't good, though, and you wonder if he'd have needed to hit those if he had been producing to the level of a simply below-average PF. He did hit them, though, so gotta give him the credit.

Kinda like GP in '06. He gave us nothing in the playoffs after a decent season, especially in the Finals. Those shots he hit in games 3 and 5 were his only contributions. But, hey, he hit them and we won.

Yes, he was a solid player, he turned into a total bum after the foot injury. This thread is a result of poor timing. I may be more willing to celebrate Haslem's contributions at a later date. Right now he sucks and I'm annoyed with him as a player.

Don't forget this;



The Pacers were punking every heat player not named LeBron until Haslem took down Hansbrough. The series was over after this. Remember this was just seconds after Hansbrough took out Wade on a drive.

Also, unlike Pittman's retaliatory clothesline of Stephenson, this happened at a significant point of the game.

Since we're overstating the impact of (in the grand scheme of things) minor plays, let me just say that if Juwan Howard didn't confront Lance Stephenson in that one pre-game shootaround, we would have lost right then and there.
