On Monday, I made an April Fools joke about Andrew Wiggins throwing up three goggles in a pickup game. It looks like I wasn’t actually that far off. Check out this picture of Andrew putting up the hand signal for the McDonald’s All-American photographers earlier this week.
And yes, I realize that three goggles didn’t originate with Kentucky, nor does throwing the sign automatically mean Wiggins will choose UK. While the three goggles gesture has become generic in the sport, it did get my pulse racing to see Wiggins throw it up. Why? Because of the numerous pictures we’ve seen of next year’s class from this week doing the same thing. From Doron to Kyle to MKG to the Harrison Twins, the hand signal does mean something in the Bluegrass, and it sure looks good on Andrew Wiggins.
