Udonis Haslem all-time Heat rebounding leader
When Udonis Haslem was trying to make the Miami Heat take notice of him a decade ago, assistant coach Keith Askins gave him one piece of advice.
He told Haslem every NBA player can score, but not everyone rebounds.
Haslem remembers that conversation so well that he’s about to become the most prolific rebounder in Heat history.
Odds are, he’ll have that title sometime Wednesday night, when the reigning NBA champion Heat start a homestand against the Milwaukee Bucks. Haslem will come into that game needing only two rebounds to pass Alonzo Mourning for Miami’s all-time lead in that department - Mourning grabbed 4,807 rebounds in 593 regular-season Heat games, while Haslem is at 4,806 rebounds after 605 games.
