Andrew Wiggins went to Wal-Mart today

Here is Andrew Wiggins Update No. 633.

It’s the post you’ve been waiting for all day.

The Courier-Journal’s Adam Himmelsbach caught up with Lesley Thomas, Andrew Wiggins’ house mom, to discuss the status of Wiggins’ recruitment and she told him Marita Wiggins will come down to Huntington “within the next week or so” for the announcement. Thomas, who also took Gorgui Dieng under her wing when he played at Prep, added that she would like to see Wiggins go to Louisville. Luckily, she has very little influence, if any, in the decision.

Thomas also said Wiggins went to Wal-Mart today, which I know all of you are very excited to hear. He bought boxes so he can pack up shoes.

This has been your Boone’s Butcher Shop Andrew Wiggins Update of the Day.

    If he used the “U-scan” checkout lane that’s a clear indication he is going to UK.

    I saw him in Wally World trying on Champion basketball shoes, clearly an indication that he’s attending Lindsey Wilson College.

    If picking boxes for your shoes is anything close to picking what school you attend, good luck to wal-mart getting him to leave the store

  5. I’m sure he was there to pick up some of those high-quality $10 bball shoes!

    This does not bode well for Kentucky. Everyone knows that Lawrence, Kansas and Chapel Hill, North Carolina are the Wal-mart capitals of the world.

    There ain’t a WalMart in Chapel Hill. It’s in DURM.

    I hope you checked those boxes out before you bought them. If there anything like the other crap they sell, it’ll be broke when you get home.

    6 NJT–actually this does bode well for UK. Paducah KY was the first city in the US to have two–count them–TWO Super Wal-Marts.

    If he is getting boxes to pack shoes, clearly it means he is going to UK…or UNC…or KU…or FSU

    If only K-Mart had the foresight to recruit his older brother, he’d be shopping there for sure.

    Uh, what is a “house mom”, and who is Marita? I can guess on both, but why not clarify in the article?

    Right on #4- hopefully when he leaves he’ll be satisfied with his choice.

    On second thought, this bodes well for Kentucky. My extensive recruiting contacts have indicated that Chapel Hill, NC does not, in fact, have a Wal-Mart. Based on this crucial development, Kentucky is clearly the front runner at this time in the Wiggins’ recruitment. (Thanks to an anonymous tipster–*cough, commenter #8, cough*–for providing this crucial information in the Wiggins’ recruitment.)

    When Mrs. Thomas says Wiggin’s mom is comming down for the announcement, she probably meant to say she was comming to make the announcement. The reason- I doubt Wiggy will have made up his mind by then.

    Unless there is an actual photo to support this claim, Wiggins was not at Walmart. You guys are so easily duped by house moms.

    17 that wasn’t a U. It was indeed a horseshoe. I have witnesses in the area that can confirm that in fact Wiggins shat a horseshoe. It was the revelation we have all been waiting for. Wiggins said he was relieved to finally come to a decision.

    Why does he need to be near his brother? He hasn’t lived near or with him in years. I’m not saying he won’t go to Kansas, but I just don’t get why so many people think his brother is gonna be the deciding factor.

    Please go somewhere else tomorrow Andrew and end this stupid monotony and give the critics someone else to extol in the preseason and take attention away from us.

    10) how can you prove that? I live near SOUTHSIDE and HINklEVillE and don’t necessarily doubt you, I just can’t prove you right or wrong. Help me with proving that is true.
