Fans on Twitter were thoroughly amused, most of them making fun of the player. Many wondered if he thought he was someone like LeBron James or Kevin Durant, looking to decide his next move for another championship. Others pointed out that Haslem has not done much, and plays and wins via other players on his team.

A lot of the comments were directed towards Haslem playing off the bench, or just sitting the game out. Many asked him to retire, or just take up a coaching spot and help others win. However, judging by what Haslem has to say for himself, the 41-year-old is not going away for at least some time.

Fans did defend Haslem as well. However, there is truth in him playing fewer games now. Since the 2016-17 season, Haslem has only played 58 games. He has been with the team since 2003 and is certainly a valuable star for the community. While some joked about him taking up coaching, many fans pointed out what being in Miami, and losing in Miami, actually means for Haslem.

Having completed 19 years in the league, one can only assume what all options Haslem must be considered before actually retiring.
