Welcome to Kuroko no Basuke Answers. What would you like to know?

Maybe they're meant to look like a tiger's whiskers, since people relate his name to sounding like "Tiger" rather than what the characters mean (Big Me). In some parts of the series, as well, he's been described to have a very "animal-like" aura, especially when he acquires his animal's instinct after training in America. Not the mention, in the beginning of the series Fujimaki wrote Kagami saying something about his sense of smell being able to detect if someone's character seemed strong/interesting or weak/uninteresting: going along with the tiger's (and other wild cats') sense of smell being able to detect prey.
