Carlos Boozer and his wife, Anishkah, got married in Miami Beach this weekend. As delightful as the photos from the shindig are, the hashtag is unlike any wedding hashtag — #BoozerWeddingHoldat2017 — I’ve ever seen before. Boozer has been yelling “holdat” on the court for awhile — and even got a t-shirt made with the phrase — and he described what the term means in 2015.
“It’s kind of a little bit like a brag,” he said. “Sometimes it can be a humblebrag. Sometimes it ain’t gonna be a humblebrag, but it’s just like a way … say somebody came up to you and is like, ‘Man, you got a nice jumpshot.’ So, ‘Holdat.’ ‘Thank you brother.’ Then somebody could come up to you on the street and be like ‘Nice kicks.’ ‘Yeah I got them at Niketown. Thanks, bro. Holdat.'” He went on to explain that sometimes he’d say it even before shots that he felt especially good about.
I can't even describe the happiness I feel for my best friends! Not even going to say much cause I'm definitely gonna cry but I am so honored and thankful that you guys chose me to be a part of this amazing unit! Love you guys so much and wish u nothing but abundance of love and endless happiness, love and light and many blessings ✨✨ @mrcbooz @journeyboheme #boozerweddingholdat2017
