Kanye West Rumors

During All-Star Weekend, Nick Young of the Golden State Warriors sat down with Sole Collector to talk switching to Adidas basketball, wearing Yeezys on court, and a possible collab between himself and Kanye West—a shoe he can already see himself wearing for the NBA Finals. “I’ve been talkin’ to him about it,” Young said. “With Kanye, it’s just going to be unique. It’ll be something different, probably have a thick sole, and a tongue on the shoe or somethin’. Hopefully, it’s in the Finals or somethin’.”

In early January, though, Wall announced that he was reuniting with Adidas. According to documents obtained by SI, Wall’s deal calls for him to be paid, in principle, a base of $4.825 million in 2017-2018; which then increases marginally and returns to $4.825 million in 2021-22. (While Wall will not have a signature shoe with Adidas, this deal permits him to collaborate on footwear with fellow clients like Kanye West and Pharrell, a likelihood, his representatives tell SI.)
Storyline: John Wall Sneaker Deal
JAY-Z Yeah, there was a great Kanye West line in one of [his] songs: “Racism’s still alive, they just be concealin’ it.” [“Never Let Me Down,” from West’s 2004 album, “The College Dropout.”] Take a step back. I think when Donald Sterling3 got kicked out of the N.B.A., I thought it was a misstep, because when you kick someone out, of course he’s done wrong, right? But you also send everyone else back in hiding. People talk like that. They talk like that. Let’s deal with that. I wouldn’t just, like, leave him alone. It should have been some sort of penalties. He could have lost some draft picks. But getting rid of him just made everyone else go back into hiding, and now we can’t have the dialogue. The great thing about Donald Trump being president is now we’re forced to have the dialogue. Now we’re having the conversation on the large scale; he’s provided the platform for us to have the conversation.
