Udonis Haslem’s legacy in Miami will never be quantified by conventional statistics, but here’s one that pretty well encompasses what he’s accomplished:
Haslem, a three-time champion, has played in more playoff games than any undrafted player in NBA history.
The Heat’s Game 7 loss to Toronto today was his 147th appearance. After playing him in just 37 games in the regular season this year, Erik Spoelstra used him in nine playoff games. He averaged 9.5 minutes, 2.3 points and 3.4 rebounds.
“I still can play this game, obviously,” said Haslem, who did all of that with a torn plantar fascia in his left foot. “When Coach threw me out there, I was able to help the team and produce.”
