With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that the former Kansas Jayhawks star is going for the jugular at tonight’s draft, donning a black and white floral pattern suit with a bow tie. He is not wearing socks. This is not a drill.
Naturally, Wiggins’ suit is already causing division in the ranks among sports pundits and fans. Some appreciate the look while others can smell the moth balls through their monitors.
No one will question if Andrew Wiggins has superstar potential in that suit.— Paul Flannery (@Pflanns) June 26, 2014
I love Andrew Wiggins suit almost as much as I did 20 years ago when Steve Martin wore it in The Three Amigos.— Kevin Van Valkenburg (@KVanValkenburg) June 26, 2014
Andrew wiggins suit is ridiculous. Looks like my grandmas couch.— Martin Peralta (@martyp_3) June 26, 2014
