Miami Heat audio 4/28: Season's over edition

New, comments

Today the Heat players returned to the AAA to clean out their lockers and say their goodbyes.  This is something that happens every year to every team once the season is over, but for this Heat team there may have been a little more emotion involved.  Why?  Because the players are very much aware that the majority of them will be playing for different teams come next season. 

A few of these guys have been playing together for years, but even for the newer players who have been with Miami for a brief time, this team was still a very closely knit bunch.  I'm sure some of the guys would love to return to Miami and play with Dwyane Wade, but if they want to do so then I imagine there will have to be some pride swallowing because they'll have to sign for maybe a little less then another team would offer. 

Today's sound clips feature D-Wade and Udonis Haslem, with one little cut of Jermaine O'Neal that I just had to throw in there.  When you hear it you'll know why.   Wade talks about being a free agent, staying in Miami and his summer.  Udonis touches on being in uncharted territory as a free agent and getting paid what he is worth.  As a reminder, to listen to the clips you simply click on each link and the audio will play in your browser.  You'll find them all after the jump....enjoy.
