The “three goggles” became a Kentucky gesture thanks to the sharp shooting of Doron Lamb.

The Re-load became a trademark of Devin Booker.

Kentucky fans have now welcomed the “Bow and Arrow” from Jamal Murray.  The question is where did this gesture come from?

Robin Hood, the Prince of Thieves,  provided his Merry Men the means  to “take from the rich and give to the poor.” His band of brothers did most of the work while he longed for Maid Marian. The weapon of choice was the bow and arrow and Little John was always at Robin’s side to provide protection and companionship.

E.J. Floreal was watching the Dallas Mavericks one night and noticed the bow and arrow gesture Wesley Matthews was using after each three point basket made.  E.J. incorporated the bow and arrow into his sideline celebration.

Jamal Murray looked towards the bench after making a three during a game in early February. E.J. shot him the bow and arrow. Jamal responded by shooting back. Thus, the bow and arrow was incorporated into the three point celebrations.

So who is the Prince of Thieves?  Little John? Merry Men?

E.J. has continued to shoot the bow and arrow and Jamal responds but this Saturday something different is going to happen.

“When Jamal hits his first three Saturday against L.S.U. I have something planned. It’s already been worked out,” explained E.J.

Let’s hope the cameras capture the moment for all the BBN to see!
