Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Before last night’s draft, a handful of NBA prospects were asked for their favorite emoji. There were clear winners and losers.


Obviously, Justise Winslow had the best choice, but Emmanuel Mudiay, Devin Booker, and Jerian Grant also picked elite emoji. Myles Turner, Trey Lyles, and Kevon Looney all lack creativity. Stanley Johnson’s a romantic. Sam Dekker’s clearly angry all the time. Karl Anthony-Towns will probably be a bust, because there are few things less cool than picking the sunglasses emoji. Adjust your expectations accordingly.
