Miami Heat’s Udonis Haslem On The Boston Celtics Fan Base: “I’m Not Apologizing To You”

Miami Heat legend Udonis Haslem apologizes to Bill Russell’s family but has no regrets in regards to his comments about the Boston Celtics

Miami Heat retired legend Udonis Haslem is providing an endless pool of entertainment on his podcast with former teammate Mike Miller.

A few weeks ago, Haslem was vaulted into social media controversy for his comments about the late Bill Russell. On the latest episode of ‘The OGs’ podcast, he cleared the air on his remarks.

“Let me talk on this one time,” Haslem began. “First, as a black man, I understand what Bill Russell has done for us. Aside from basketball, what he has done for us as a black man just for us to move forward in life. I have a lot of respect. Love what he’s done on the basketball court as well. Being a champion, I’m all about winning. If I apologize to anybody, it’d be Bill Russell’s family.”

After clarifying the misconceptions, the Heat legend attacked the Boston Celtics fan base with hilarious statements.

“The Boston people, y’all got a better chance of wrestling an alligator. I’m not apologizing to you, mother (expletive), for nothing,” Haslem said. “But Bill Russell’s family, I will apologize because that might have came off as insensitive in the heat of the moment, but I got a lot of love and a lot of respect for Bill Russell, so as a man, if I came off wrong, I apologize. You Boston mother (expletive), (expletive) you.”

Haslem and the Celtics had a rivalry where they faced off multiple times in the NBA playoffs. The majority of which took place during the Big Three between 2010 and 2014.
