One disgruntled former Nike rep is Kanye West.  He just dropped a diss record to the beat of Drake & Future’s song “Jumpman”.  One baller who “jumped” to Nike’s defense was Lebron James who has been a representative for the brand for 13 years.


Lebron James just signed a deal of an “undisclosed amount” with Nike last month.  He has been a face of the sports giant since he signed with the NBA just out of high school.


Kanye West’s Nike deal went sour, so he is a little salty & just dropped what some people are calling as ” the most unoriginal Yeezy record ever”.


Kanye disses Nike in his song “Facts” saying that Nike treats “employees just like slaves” & “Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away,” among other things.


Lebron James issued this statement, “Obviously I’m going to side with Nike no matter who it is,” James says. “It’s just, it’s family when you talk about Nike, and I’m always on their side no matter what the situation is.” “We just try to put the best athletes that we can out on the floor every night,” he says. “And [Nike co-founder and chairman] Phil Knight’s greatest saying is ‘Always listen to the heart of the athlete listen to the words of the athlete.’ And that’s all it’s about, nothing else.”

Kanye West who used to have his Air Yeezy’s under Nike had issues with them & needless to say, has now partnered with Adidas.
