Udonis Haslem played only 44 minutes during the entire regular season and has failed to take the court these playoffs, yet he remains arguably the most respected individual within the Heat's playing group.
Haslem continues to motivate his teammates despite having minimal impact on the court. Now 40 years of age, Haslem is certainly far from an on-court factor, serving as more of an assistant coach and inspirational leader. With the Heat on the brink of what has to be considered an upset victory, players such as Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo credit Haslem as a driving force in their push for championship glory. There will come a time when Haslem is no longer on the playing list, although at this point it would seem likely he continues to serve as a primary piece behind the scenes.
