Three time NBA champion Udonis Haslem just did something pretty awesome … he bought a pretty sick 6 bedroom home for the woman who raised him … just to say “thank you.” FYI — the Miami Heat player’s biological mother Debra battled drug addiction when Udonis was a child … so he was raised by his stepmother … Barbara Wooten. Now, we’ve learned Haslem has hooked up Barbara with a brand new $326k pad in Miami Gardens — it’s 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, 3,640 square feet … and Haslem foot the bill.

It was Wade, not James, who by himself kept Udonis Haslem in Miami. Wade went to James with the idea of taking less money to include Haslem. James refused. The Heat couldn’t figure out a way to make a competitive offer to Haslem within salary-cap constraints until Wade volunteered to take that salary hit alone. It is why Wade was paid millions less than Bosh and James — one of the sacrifices Wade would make on behalf of team that he evidently would now like reimbursed.

Riley and the Heat currently point to Miami native and 12-year Heat veteran Udonis Haslem as a symbol of their “Heat Lifer” campaign. But sources around the league know Riley has offered Haslem to any number of teams in trade talks in recent years. With the right deal, of course Riley probably would’ve done the right thing for the franchise and made the deal. He’d save the crying for later — and quite possibly hire Haslem back after his playing days.
