The Miami Heat are a franchise with a rich history.
Many legendary players have played for the Heat and they were one of the most successful teams during the 2010s.
One of the many reasons for their success was the superteam they built with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh.
Those three helped lead the Heat to two championships and were a dominant force for many years.
As a franchise, the Heat have won three championships, with the first coming in the 2006 season.
Believe it or not, there has been one player who has been on the roster for all of their titles.
That is Heat legend Udonis Haslem.
Haslem is 42 years old and his first NBA season was back in 2003.
Despite never making a huge impact on the floor for the Heat, Haslem has become a fan favorite for his longevity.
Over the past seven seasons, Haslem has not played more than 16 games in any year.
He is more of a coach and team leader than a player at this point.
With Haslem expected to retire after this season, the Heat wanted to show him some love.
That is why they have decided to dedicate a seating section to their longtime player.
According to the Miami Herald, there will be murals of Haslem in one section.
Udonis Haslem will have a seating section at Miami Heat’s Arena dedicated to him by the franchise 🔥

This is a nice gesture by the Heat.
Haslem is the longest-tenured player in team history, and he is deserving of this recognition.
It will be interesting to see how Haslem is honored on the court as the regular season comes to an end.
You would think he might start the last home game of the season as a tribute to his time in Miami.NEXT: NBA Fans Are Remembering An Iconic LeBron James Moment Today
