Sadly, it won’t, and Haslem, the only remaining member of the Heat’s three NBA championship teams, said he won’t wear the title of last man standing “as a badge of honor.” “It’s bittersweet, obviously,” said Haslem, who signed a one-year, $4 million contract on Sunday during a flurry of signings the Heat made in the aftermath of Wade’s decision to head home and play for the Chicago Bulls. “You know it’s something to talk about when I’m done — I was the last one left,” Haslem continued. “But while I’m in right now, it’s still hard. It’s not going to be easy. Like I said, you kind of write the story a certain way. You hope it will end that way. We just always talked about finishing it together. It just didn’t work out that way.”
Haslem then referenced last summer’s free-agency controversy when center DeAndre Jordan agreed to sign a max deal with the Dallas Mavericks, but reneged after teammates Chris Paul and Blake Griffin convinced him to return to the Los Angeles Clippers. Haslem, 36, somberly joked that he should have considered a similar tactic to get Wade to come back to Miami. “In hindsight, I don’t know, I think I should have come in and pulled a Chris Paul and handcuffed him like they did DeAndre Jordan and made him change his mind,” Haslem said. “I don’t know if there was anything I could have done or should have done. But I felt like it could have been avoided. For whatever reason, it just wasn’t.”
