Heat's Haslem becomes 2nd-oldest player to advance to NBA Finals
Udonis Haslem has only appeared in one game for the Miami Heat during this year's playoffs, but he's still making history.
With the Heat's 103-84 win over the Boston Celtics on Monday night, the 42-year-old Haslem became the second-oldest player to advance to the NBA Finals after Robert Parish.
Parish set the record as part of the Chicago Bulls' 1996-97 championship team, though he didn't see any action in the Finals.
Haslem, who has spent his entire 20-year career in Miami, announced in March that he plans to retire at the end of the 2022-23 season "no matter what happens." This will be his seventh trip to the Finals and give him a chance at a fourth championship.
Game 1 of the Finals between the Heat and Nuggets is scheduled for Thursday in Denver.
