NBA draft prospect Justise Winslow says girls love the monkey emojis

Thursday June 25th, 2015

If you don't know what an emoji is, let Mike Francesa give you a lesson. Got it? Good. Now that that's out of the way, let's take a look at what some of the top NBA draft prospects' favorite emojis are. 

Abe Schwadron from SLAM sat down with a bunch of the big names in Thursday's draft and asked them, among other things, what their favorite emojis are.

Most of the players didn't explain their choices, but Justise Winslow was kind enough to elaborate. 

“I like the guy with the little smirky smirk,” Winslow said. “You don't know if it's a good smirk or a bad smirk. You can just send it to family members or girls. It usually works on girls—and the monkeys. They really like the monkeys.”

Winslow may have been overshadowed by Jahlil Okafor at Duke, but Okafor isn't out here giving social media advice.
