Emojis at heart of the chase for DeAndre Jordan

VIDEO: NBA Emoji Battle?

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last week, DeAndre Jordan announced he’d be leaving the Clippers for the Mavericks. Today, all heck broke loose, as it was reported that Jordan was being still being pursued by the Clippers.

The Clippers and the Mavericks are all apparently trying to get in another meeting with Jordan, which means they all need to travel to his hometown of Houston. How do you get to Houston?

If you’re Chandler Parsons and you’re in Dallas, maybe you hop in a plane…

But if you’re JJ Redick and you’re in Austin, Texas, you could take a car…

Or if you’re Blake Griffin and you’re vacationing in Hawaii, it may be a more involved process…

Newest Clipper Paul Pierce went with a clip art picture of a rocket, instead of an emoji…

But Clips assistant Mike Woodson is apparently swimming to the meeting…

And then there’s Chris Paul, who 24 hours ago was photographed riding a banana boat, but is also apparently on the way…

Either way, emojis are winning the day in NBA social media. Just ask Draymond Green

And the Warriors, well, they can sit back and watch since they’ve got a trophy to hang onto…

Oh, and Kobe weighed in as well…

Don’t forget aboutΒ Jordan:

And even in the middle of Wimbeldon action, Roger Federer got in on the fun:

    I love California, so I don’t blame Jordan not wanting to leave. This was totally unfair to Cuban, but he will move on and find someone to replace him. Jordan is still young so it’s understandable he changed his mind. The Clippers need another superstar to make the finals though.
