Heat icon Udonis Haslem’s epic stat line after Dwight Howard fight, ejection is hilarious
The Miami Heat lifer entered his first game if the season, and as you’ve probably seen by now, hilariously got ejected shortly after thanks to a kerfuffle with a certain Dwight Howard.

But before exiting the floor, Udonis Haslem made sure to put up some #numbers. The veteran scored four points and grabbed a single rebound before his altercation. He was also a perfect two for two from the field. This immediately propelled the Heat legend into the greatest per-36 player in franchise, nay, NBA history this season.

Haslem’s per-36 averaging 48 points per game, with 12 rebounds, and a perfect shooting record from the floor is indeed impressive. But it’s his 1 fight per minute stat that certainly stands out. Being able to produce at that level in short minutes is just knowing your role and executing it to perfection.
Kidding aside, it was great to see UD back on the floor. Haslem has played all 18 years of his career in Miami, which is a feat that’ll be tough to replicate again in a Heat uniform
