screen-shot-2016-09-21-at-2-20-40-pm We've all been there: you get a text from your friends, respond, and soon enough, the conversation just won't end. Whereas some people feel guilty if they don't respond and always reply back (me), or others just stop responding altogether (Drew), Tyler Ulis has an even better method of escaping never-ending text chains: the swimming emoji.


Huh? In an interview with Lang Whitaker today, Ulis said his favorite emoji is the swim emoji because it helps him get out of unwanted text conversations. "There's no content," Ulis said. "If I want to end a conversation or I don't feel like talking to someone, I'll send them the swimming emoji and it will confuse them and that will be the end of it." Brilliant. Meanwhile, Jamal Murray's favorite emoji isn't surprising at all: screen-shot-2016-09-21-at-2-17-02-pm To see the video of the NBA rookies breaking down their favorite and least favorite emojis, click here.
