Udonis Haslem’s Prediction for First Heat-Cavs Game: “Pain”
Many members of the Miami Heat may not have too much of a big deal of LeBron James leaving. Sure, their championships chance dwindle, but Mario Chalmers found his way back on the team, Chris Bosh got a max deal and will be a focal point of the offense, and more.
