HoopsHype Mike Scott rumors

October 14, 2014 Updates

When did you first get into the tat game and how many tattoos do you have total now?: Mike Scott: I started very late, honestly. My junior year in college. I didn't have my ears pierced or any tattoos — not until my later years of college. But I've honestly really stopped counting. I know people hate when you say that, but I really just stopped counting after college. Is it, like, more than 20 total? And what percentage would you estimate are emojis? Mike Scott: Oh, it's definitely more than 20. Definitely more than 20. About 80%, 85% are emojis, I would say. Mashable

So why emojis? I'd never really seen emoji tattoos before yours. The story behind it is I just use emojis a lot when I text. It's me; it's original. People are doing it now, but no one else had it before I started getting into it. I dunno — I guess I started the trend. It's a trend I see now but for sure no one had it when I started. Mike Scott: Sometimes they say what you can't say. They can express the words that you can't say about how you feel. You can do a whole conversation just using emojis and people will understand. I actually do that a lot. What's the one emoji that doesn't exist that you think is missing? Mike Scott: They definitely need a middle finger emoji. I can't think of many others but that's definitely one I'd like to use for a couple people. Mashable

But what about those two girls kind of dancing side by side? You have that one too, but that's a pretty rare emoji. Mike Scott: Yeah, I just like it. I got the two girls on one arm and then the lady in the red dress on the other. I guess you could say I got my girls on one side and then my mistress on the other side. [Laughs.] I don't even know how to use the two girls one. What do you use it for? Mike Scott: [Laughs] Man, you can use it for a lot of things. I won't go into too much detail, but I always find a way when people text to get them to understand the emojis I'm using. Mashable

Mike Scott will be a restricted free agent this summer after the second-year player made considerable strides this season. Scott averaged 9.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 80 regular-season games. He may have increased his price tag with his Game 5 performance in the playoffs against the Pacers. “I’m just going to leave that to the GM and the coaching staff but of course I want to come back,” Scott said.
