Phoenix Suns jerseys are on sale and emoji are coming soon.
“We’re going to get emojis for all the different teams,” said Suns rookie point guard Cody Zeller, who said he was inspired by the emoji trend on Twitter.
“We’ll probably have a team that’s got them all and then you’ll see a couple of the other teams having them too.”
“You can’t just keep putting emoji in every team, but you can make it so that every team has something that’s just special,” Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said.
“So, for example, when I look at the Dallas Mavericks, you could put them on all the uniforms.
Then, when you’re looking at the New York Knicks, you can put them in every uniform.”
In other words, every team will have an emoji for each of the 25 teams.
Phoenix Suns player D.J. Humphries said he’s been using emoji to promote his new shoe line.
Humphries said the Suns have been using emojises since March.
“When I started wearing emoji in Phoenix, I was like, ‘I’m going to put my team on emojipedia and get all the emojicons for this,’ ” Humphries told the Arizona Republic.
“Now I’m trying to find a way to make it as easy as possible to use emoji, and that’s been fun.”
