Yesterday Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins finally announced his decision to enter the NBA Draft this coming June. Wiggins is regarded as the top prospect in the upcoming class alongside Duke freshman Jabari Parker – who will be making his announcement soon. Anybody who has paid attention to college ball this year knew that Wiggins was going to declare all along. It wasn’t a shocker, and certainly wasn’t anything to cancel wedding plans over or anything like that.
For the sake of adding a comedic twist to his announcement, I blogged today about the hilarious sentences that Wiggins constructed during his news conference. I’m two years older than the guy, so c’mon, I (along with pretty much anybody with a brain) know exactly how Andrew Wiggins reeeally felt yesterday.
This post is in no way intended to insult Andrew, but to just point out two things he said that I find funny. That’s all.
“It wasn’t an easy decision because the fans showed me so much love here. I just wish I had more time.”
Hold up, Andrew. You DO know that you have more time, right? Now I do believe he was being honest when he said it wasn’t an easy decision, but that’s only because the students and fans in Kansas show tremendous support for the basketball team. Even though he’s a consensus top-three draft pick, leaving the fans there was something that slowed his decision down for 0.4 seconds.
“College goes by so fast. When you aren't getting paid, everything speeds up around you.”
Alright, he didn't say the second sentence. As somebody who is still in college (I’m just the tender age of 21 y’all), honestly, it does. It goes by even faster when you play only one year of basketball, though.
Good luck to Andrew Wiggins as he prepares for the next chapter in his life. Dolla dolla bill y’all.
