Udonis Haslem Says He Will Use All Six Fouls and Flagrant Foul on Dwyane Wade If He Goes to Cavs
- Updated: September 26, 2017
Now that it’s a virtual certainty that Dwyane Wade will not be returning to play for the Miami Heat this year, one of his former teammates offered a tongue-in-cheek hint that he may ready to inflict some on-court punishment on Wade for his decision to join former Heat teammate LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The main weapon used by veteran Udonis Haslem against both Wade and James will be the six fouls given to each player during the course of a game.

“I’m gonna put my special request in to Spo (Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra) for some minutes in that game,” Haslem said. “How many fouls you get before you foul out? Six? Probably three on each and a flagrant for Dwyane.”
Despite numerous reports of Wade’s pending signing, Haslem is still holding out hope that the veteran will come back to Miami, where he spent the first 13 seasons of his career.
“You hear a lot of stuff being reported. Until he makes a decision, until it’s final you won’t get a reaction from me. There’s nothing really to say,” Haslem said. “Me and Dwyane talk a lot. I’m sure we’ll talk today and if I hear from it from him, then it’s a different story.”
The 37-year-old Haslem and Wade each entered the league in 2003 and were a part of all three Heat NBA titles in 2006, 2012 and 2013. The first opportunity for Haslem to try his strategy will be Nov. 28, when the Heat travel to Cleveland for a game that night.
