Haslem’s father, Johnnie Haslem, died Aug. 30 at age 70. The elder Haslem was a high school basketball standout at Miami Northwestern, went on to lead Stetson in scoring and rebounding as a senior there in 1973-74 and played at the semi-pro level after college. His son said he models his own game entirely based on the way his father played, even wearing No. 40 because his dad did. “It’s going to be hard moving forward without him, but I’m prepared,” Haslem said. “My parents raised me and I’ve been through enough where I know I can weather any storm I’m in.”
