Kanye West Rumors
In the song, Facts, in which West repeatedly criticizes Nike, whom he left in 2013 for a creative partnership with rival Adidas, West said: Nike, Nike, treat employees just like slaves Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away. James’ response: “We don’t look upon nobody on our side, we just try to put the best athletes that we can out on the floor every night. “And Phil Knight’s greatest saying is ‘always listen to the heart of the athlete listen to the words of the athlete,'” James continued. “And that’s all it’s about, nothing else.”
Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy they line up for days Nike out here bad, they can’t give *$%# away “Obviously I’m going to side with Nike no matter who it is,” James said. “It’s just, it’s family when you talk about Nike, and I’m always on their side no matter what the situation is.”
Nick Young marked his new deal with Adidas and sent the Internet abuzz on Saturday night by wearing Kanye West-designed Adidas Yeezy 750 Boosts in the Los Angeles Lakers game against the Houston Rockets. The flamboyant star, who goes by the nickname Swaggy P, explained why he wore the lifestyle shoes that aren’t really made for basketball. “I just signed with Adidas, welcome to the three stripes, Swaggy P,” he said to The Associated Press. “And I had to come in with some style and that’s basically what it’s all about.”
The struggling Lakers have won just three games this season and lost 126-97, but Young did something he hasn’t done in his time in Los Angeles in the lopsided defeat: He had his first-ever assist to Kobe Bryant. He thought it might have had something to do with the shoes. “It was the Yeezys tonight that got the assist for him,” he joked.
