Some look way better than others. Let’s rank ‘em shall we?

First, we’ll get rid of the boring ones.

Tied-Worst: All the numbers and letters.

Sorry Paul Millsap and Kemba Walker.

Carmelo Anthony has his own emoji app, so when you compare this to his other emojis this is a letdown.

Kevin Durant falls in this category also. Yes, it gets the job done, but it’s not the flashiest emoji in the bunch.

Not the worst, but like eh: The Faces.

It’s not your fault Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Gordon Hayward, and DeAndre Jordan.

Giannis Antetokounmpo gets a pass here.

The weird.

Why is Marc Gasol’s emoji just the Grizzlies logo with a headband?

Why is Jimmy Butler’s emoji a paint can … oh it’s a bucket. Carry on.

On to the list.

14. Isaiah Thomas

*Yawns & shrugs*

At least it’s not just the number.

13. PG-13

You have to do that emoji. You don’t have a choice really. It’s a layup.

12. Russell Westbrook

The only reason why it’s on the list is because there is a lightning bolt on the zero. Other than that, there isn’t much here.

11. Draymond Green

At least it’s him doing a signature move. It would be funnier if he was doing another certain signature move, but this is cool too.

10. Kyrie Irving

Can we file that under consideration as the new NBA logo? Please?

9. Giannis Antetokounmpo


8. LeBron James

Well duh. A number on the throne would have been cool though.

7. DeMarcus Cousins

Get it? Because BOOgie. Admit it, you chuckled.

6. Steph Curry

Would have liked to see a spatula but that’s just being picky. It’s a cool emoji.

5. John Wall

It’s cool and accurate. Best of both worlds.

4. Anthony Davis

It really could have just been the brow. On second thought, people might think it was a mustache.

3. Kawhi Leonard

Even in emoji form he’s playing defense. That’s superb work ethic.

2. Klay Thompson

Rocco is a good dog. This is a good emoji.

1. James Harden

This emoji is cold. Plain and simple.
