Udonis Haslem Admits That Flagrant Foul on Tyler Hansbrough Was in Defense of Dwyane Wade; Says He Would Do It Again

Udonis Haslem Admits That Flagrant Foul on Tyler Hansbrough Was in Defense of Dwyane Wade; Says He Would Do It Again

Now that their series with the Indiana Pacers is in the rear view mirror, Miami's Udonis Haslem decided to let the truth come out. During their Game 5 match-up last week, Haslem earned a mere "Flagrant 1" after administering an aggressive foul on Tyler Hansbrough, which occurred moments after the Pacers forward roughed up Dwyane Wade on a play. Following the game, the Heat forward defended his actions saying that he was going for the ball. Now, Haslem is taking a different tone.

“I can’t imagine anything I wouldn’t do for Dwyane,” he says, referencing his response to the aforementioned Hansbrough Flagrant 1 foul on Wade. “OK,” he says. “That’s how it is going to be tonight? OK. Let’s do that then." Well, that confession wasn't all too surprising, right? But the Heat forward went on to say that he would do it again if he had to, which has some series implications for their Eastern Conference Finals contest against the "dirtiest player in the league" Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics. So, what's the over/under on cheap shots for their upcoming series? Sidebar: When's Dexter Pittman going to confess that his brutal elbow on Lance Stephenson was done on purpose as well?
