Miami Heat News: Udonis Haslem Wins 2017 Teammate of the Year Award

Udonis Haslem Miami Heat

In spite of all the moving players, new rosters and drama over the past few years, one player has been remained faithful to the Miami Heat organization. That same player picked up a tremendous honor Friday afternoon.

South Florida sports icon Udonis Haslem was voted the Heat’s Teammate of the Year on Friday in the National Basketball Players Association’s Players Voice Awards.

Although the battle-scarred power forward has seen his stats diminish in the past few seasons, the 36-year-old has been a tremendous mentor to the team’s younger players. The 14-year veteran, who’s spent his whole career in Miami, has earned loads of praise for his leadership from his teammates and coaching staff.

From former teammates like Chris Bosh, who called Haslem one of his best teammates to current star Hassan Whiteside, who Haslem has intentionally uplifted, the franchise’s all-time leading rebounder has had a phenomenal impact on the mental preservation and direction of the team.
