    NBA's Udonis Haslem -- Buys Miami Pad ... For Woman Who Raised Him http://dlvr.it/BbYtB7

    Quote
    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.

    Carroll's understandably excited about joining the Raptors and not just because of his four-year, $60 million contract.

    DeMarre Carroll: "Coach (Dwane) Casey basically said he had a man crush on me. That made me feel good for a coach to want you that bad."

    Walker lost $110 million through bad investments, extravagant spending and supporting family and friends.

    This week he talked to the participants in the Senior Bowl about how to avoid the same mistakes that he made.

    “I want them to hear everything — the good side of what the money did for me, and also the bad side,” Walker said via The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin. “Obviously, I didn’t play football, but I understand you’re chasing your dream. Also, just the fact that once you make it, you’re in the real world, you’re making real dollars. There are a lot of people that will be coming and pulling at you, and you’ve got to be prepared for that.”

  • Udonis Haslem believes he can still play

    Miami Heat apparently agree


    Quote
    Three-time NBA champion has signed a one-year, $2.3 million deal to remain with the Heat for what will be his 15th season. Haslem was already the longest-tenured player in Heat history, with all of his NBA seasons coming for his hometown team.

    Among active players, only Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have spent the entirety of a career spanning at least 15 years with one franchise.

    "It is a great, great, day to have Udonis Haslem sign a contract for his 15th season with the Miami Heat," team president Pat Riley said Thursday
