Sad Day For Udonis Haslem & the Heat Family

It pains us to report that Debra Haslem (mother of Heat captain Udonis Haslem) has passed away at    the age of 53.

Debra  was battling cancer for the last year which was one of the main reasons UD passed on an extra $20 million to play for Miami and be close to his ailing mother.

Dwyane Wade, who has played with Haslem since 2003 when both were entering the league,  wrote on his  Twitter account

“Sending a prayer out for My brother UD and his family.”

Udonis is more than just  a back up forward to this squad. He is the unquestioned leader and captain.  A home grown talent that played at Miami High and who has spent his entire professional career with the Heat.

Our heart felt condolences go out to Udonis and his family.
