Andrew Wiggins, the NBA draft's first overall pick, grabbed headlines with his '¡Three Amigos!'-inspired draft-night suit. After getting selected by the 76ers at No. 3 overall, Joel Embiid created a short-lived Twitter firestorm with his tape-delayed non-reaction. And then UCLA guard Zach LaVine topped them both with his less-than-pleasant reaction to the Minnesota Timberwolves selecting him No. 13 overall in the NBA draft.

It appears the athletic combo guard muttered something that rhymes with 'puck me' when NBA commissioner Adam Silver read his name.

Who can blame LaVine? He played his college ball for the high-profile Bruins after earning Washington state Mr. Basketball honors in high school. And with all the talk about when -- not if -- All-Star forward Kevin Love will be traded, the Timberwolves are clearly heading into rebuilding mode.

Stick with it, Zach. Perhaps you, too, can play your way out of Minnesota soon enough.
