First pick Andrew Wiggins grabbed headlines with his '¡Three Amigos!'-inspired draft-night suit. The 76ers' Joel Embiid created a short-lived Twitter firestorm with his tape-delayed non-reaction. 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' once 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. With the talk about when not if All-Star forward Kevin Love will be traded, the Timberwolves are heading into rebuilding mode.

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