Udonis Haslem is pretty good guy, and he just proved it again.

According to TMZ, Haslem bought a 6-bedroom, 4-bath, 6,640 square foot home in Miami for the woman who raised him. His biological mother, Debra, battled drug addiction when Udonis was a child. So he was raised by his stepmother, Barbara Wooten. Now, we've learned Haslem has hooked up Barbara with a brand new $326k pad in Miami Gardens, and he bought the whole thing.

"I am blessed that God has provided me the opportunity and ability to provide for my family." And not only that, he is giving back to the people who helped him so much when he was younger. It's just another example of how much of a genuine, humble person Udonis has become, or always has been.

"I wouldn't be here without her. She raised me since age 3. I can never repay her and all I can do is show my gratitude."

Here's a photo of the home:

We are proud of you Udonis! Keep representing South Florida well!
