Justise Winslow credits Wikipedia for getting him through HS, year at Duke


“Wikipedia is not a reliable source!” If you are between the ages of 17-25, you have probably heard that from at least one, if not all, of your teachers through middle school, high school, and even college.

No matter how much we have heard it, we still use it for just about everything, whether it be for a research paper or just bored in bed at 2 a.m. It seems like one NBA player is a pretty big proponent of the Internet’s encyclopedia.

Every so often, Wikipedia will ask for donations to help keep their site running since they have no revenue income. Former Duke star Justise Winslow mentioned it on Twitter and talked about him not being able to survive high school or college without it.

What makes this even better is that Winslow was named to the All-ACC Academic Team last year. Oh, the irony is just too much with this.

So remember kids, next time your teacher tells you not to use Wikipedia, just tell them that was proven to be 97.5 percent accurate in 2014.
