Will Udonis leave Florida?

Remember the blockbuster trade when the Jazz acquired Rony Seikaly from the Magic for Chris Morris and Greg Foster? No? Oh, right, Rony refused to come to the city of Utah and thus the trade was nixed.

Could history repeat itself? What if Udonis Haslem, who played for four years at the University of Florida and has spent his entire NBA career with Miami, refuses to come to Utah? If you think such unabashed Utah-hate and Florida-love can only happen once, I present the following evidence of Udonis' love for the sunshine state.

What a terrible letdown that was... Rony would have made a huge difference.

The best quote from that Seikaly article is the following: "Chris (Morris) was like the brother I didn't have," forward Bryon Russell said. "But I understand it's a business."

Thanks goodness that trade never became official. The funk Russell would have been in might have caused him to average 9 points and 2.5 boards a game without ever developing a three-point shot. Wait a second. . .
