Udonis Haslem wants to be referred to as DJango for the remainder of the season


Having a great nickname can only add to your legend as an NBA player. Miami Heat’s Udonis Haslem has decided to give himself a new moniker for the remainder of the season. DJango.

UD, wait excuse me, DJango, has adopted his new alter ego from the recently released Quentin Tarantino film “Django Unchained.” The flick which is part slavery tale, love story and spaghetti western, tells the story of a former slave that becomes a bounty hunter and embarks on an adventure to free his wife.


No word on why he wants to be referenced as such but in my own mind, I think I get it…

Shout out to my former boss Reginald Hudlin, he’s one of the producers of “Django Unchained.”
