The “three point goggles”… Ben Gordon was doing it in 2008 for the Chicago Bulls, Mo Williams claims he started it to make fun of Jomario Moon in Cleveland last year, and I’ve always thought it was as a ‘blood’ gang sign. A Yahoo! Answers page even says it’s a Lady GaGa tribute, so who really knows? All we do know, is it’s a good sign for Kentucky when Doron Lamb and company are doing it on the court.
The Wall Street Journal has a piece investigating these “three point goggles” and John Calipari weighed in on the fad…
“Last year we had the John Wall dance,” dumbfounded Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “I didn’t even know. Now there’s a goggles T-shirt that came out, and I’m like, what is that? I’m just trying to make sure they run back on defense.”
“What happens is the players here are known,” said Kentucky’s Calipari. “People know who Wall is, who DeMarcus Cousins is, who Josh Harrellson and Darius Miller are. That’s what it’s about. If that’s what happens, that’s great.”
Whatever it means or however it started – I like it, and I will continue to do it wherever I’m watching the game and on into life’s journeys.
