Famous NBA player Carlos Boozer just got married to Anishkah in delightful Miami Beach this weekend. The wedding was perfect, the bride was splendid, there were a lot of people having fun.
But what really got us to share these amazing news is the wedding’s hashtag Carlos Boozer used in his Instagram: #BoozerWeddingHoldat2017. If you’ve been following Boozer for some time, you recognize the word “holdat” – it’s what NBA player has been yelling at play. It’s some kind of term he described here and he even had a “holdat” t-shirt specially designed for him.
To my Dearest Boozers @journeyboheme @mrcbooz your love that you express for each other is out of this world, and very inspiring. Thank you for letting be apart of your amazing day, may your lips touch each other, so you can touch the next 60 years together, one love ❤️❤️🖤🖤🙌🏾🙌🏾 #boozerweddingholdat2017 #Blacklove
That’s what Carlos Boozer says about the word:
“It’s kind of a little bit like a brag. 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.’”
To sum things up, Carlos Boozer said that he sometimes shouts “holdat” when doing his best shots.
