Kanye West Rumors
The MTV Video Music Awards was televised Sunday night from Madison Square Garden, and once you finish your diatribe about how like MTV doesn’t even play videos anymore, man, you can learn about how the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Iman Shumpert appeared in Kanye West’s video for Fade, which he premiered during the show last night. The video stars an oiled up and barely clothed Teyana Taylor performing a Flashdance-esque dance to the song, and concludes with Shumpert, who is Taylor’s fiancé, joining her in the shower. Then Taylor transforms into a lion and she and Shumpert hold their child among a flock of sheep.

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.”

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.”
