MiamiHerald / This is hardly a shocker, but count Miami Heat captain and diehard Miami Hurricanes football supporter Udonis Haslem as a big fan of UM’s now infamous “turnover chain.”
“I love it,” the 15-year NBA veteran and Miami native said of the thick Cuban-link gold chain that players have been awarded and wearing on the Hurricanes sideline this season moments after recording an interception or fumble recovery.
“It brings me back to those 2 Live Crew days with the gold ropes that Uncle Luke and 2 Live Crew used to wear,” Haslem continued. “They just didn’t have The U [charm filled with orange and green sapphire stones] on it, but they used to have The U jackets.
“I actually got one of those jackets. I thought about wearing it after we beat Florida State [in October], but I’m going to wear it if we beat Notre Dame [on Saturday]. I’m going to wear it to practice.”
