UD is a very special guy

Postby phideltgator » Wed Jun 26, 2013 8:45 pm

Well the Heat celebration is beginning to settle. I could not get to Mike Miller for reasons out of my control but I did get to chat with Udonis. What a fine person he is... all 6'-9", the best. From Miami High as his roots, Udonis gets special attention from his team as co-captain and his home town Miami. When he shows up for a handshake the crowd is full of electricity. The girl in front of me fainted.
Gator Great 2012, 3X NBA Champion and it was like talking to my brother. I gave congrats and a "hey now" to UD for a fantastic season and wished him the best of luck to him and his new bride, another Gator.

Let's hope that he isn't charged with murder anytime soon.

I think Udonis works with helping "troubled" youth in Miami. Perhaps
that's the best preventive against harmful behavior.?

Miller and Haslem are like Teflon for the Gator Nation in Miami, a necessary evil with no big Gator chomps, just the casual 'hey now' remark bringing a smile and a instant Gator bond.

Ud is proof that hard work and great character can make your dreams come true. 3 rings? You got to be happy for the guy.

The girl in front of me followed UD from hs. UD is her hero and she attends the U of all places. Something about Udonis got caught up in an address problem and the hs had to relinquish the trophy.

Great guy...great leader. He has the respect of his teammates. Great work ethic. If he wasn't injured the first yr of the big three the Heat may have already had a three-peat. He was back for the finals but was not himself.

I did not know that. Being raised in Jax and relocating to the metro Miami area for my high school years. I can relate. Quite an adjustment in environment. Returning to my roots in N. Fl (UF) for my college years definitely rescued me. :cool:

I think UD is a great guy and a good representative of UF. Any athlete that doesn't embarrass himself and his alma mater becomes a great representative by default these days.

However, I cannot share your enthusiasm for him any more than any other player due to his public attitude and comments regarding UF and his decision to play for us.

If you will be honest with yourself you will admit that he has gone out of his way to diminish UF and his time there choosing only to acknowledge attending UF as "a business decision." Wow, that sure makes me proud.

I prefer to root for Gators that are proud to be Gators. I guess I am funny that way.

Now go ahead and pile on me for being honest.
