Kanye West

The fallout continues for outspoken Trump supporter Kanye West. The NBA plans to ban Kanye's Adidas-sponsored Yeezy basketball sneaker. The sneaker is the newly revamped version of the Yeezy basketball shoe.

According to ESPN, the NBA plans to ban its players from wearing the shoe during NBA games because of its reflective "3M" panel on the heel of the sneakers.

Kanye West Adidas Yeezy basketball sneakers

The NBA has a history of not approving reflective material such as metallic chrome or shiny emblems. The league has banned similar basketball sneakers in the past, including Carmelo Anthony's Jordan M10 sneakers.

But some observers say Kanye's politics are really at issue here.

Kanye is a fiercely loyal supporter of President Donald Trump -- and his sponsors are nervous about the public backlash -- mainly from Democrats and liberals.

In related news, Kanye announced he is moving his Yeezy factory to Chicago. He originally planned to outsource the work to a factory in China.

Yeezy's shoe factory is expected to bring hundreds of jobs to Chicago, where he currently resides with his 2-year-old son Saint.

    Good.

  • isaiit

    The most that I can deal with concerning Kanye is reading post about him in these interweb streets. I can no longer listen to any of his music, old or no. I guess I didnt realize that he is really an insecure person with too much bravado.

  • hi-liter

    Damn RIGHT! Bitchass wants to make money off of the backs NBA players, next it will be cleats for the NFL. Make some maga Yeezys and see how well they sell.

  • Renee26

    Chicago, where he currently resides with his 2-year-old son Saint.

    Just them two huh Auntie? ?

    Kim said North lives her life pretending her siblings don't exist and she has never liked Saint...and Kim is tired of Kanye so maybe they've been banished from the coven.

  • ohdearme

    Well the NBA is consistent, however if he gets his BFF Trump involved maybe together they can try and force the issue. Sad.

  • hi-liter

    Can't force them to wear them ugly azz shoes on the court. Some players will prolly purchase them just to wear off the court.

  • Rainbowbelow

    If the NBA doesn't allow certain things on shoes, then that's the reason. Periodt...?

  • Ryan

    Is there a need to ban ugly shoes no one was wearing anyway? Oh well.

  • ohdearme

    Of course they can't be forced to wear them but if you notice Trump tweets about plenty of bs thinking he can force people to do as he says. "Mueller needs to stop this witch hunt"! lol

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Good. I hate this NIG

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I saw a clip of KUWTK on TSR and Kim was talking to Khlogre about how erratic and unstable Kanye is. He basically had a meltdown, after she spent 20 minutes looking for different band aids, because she didn't have any flesh colored band aids. I only watched it bc people were saying she did the same kind of stuff with the basketball player before she divorced him.

  • Bonita

    lol@ "where he currently resides with his 2-year-old son Saint."

    Kanye is going to be really hurt when he loses his family. After losing his mom, this man might kill himself fr. It is very obvious Kim Kardashian is already planning to leave him, and she will definitely be trying to take the kids. She has gone publicly on record several times bashing Kanye, speaking negatively about him, and discussing their problems - things she literally NEVER does until she's getting ready to leave a man and needs to sway public opinion so she looks like a good person who fell in love with the wrong man. I can't stand Kanye, but it's no secret this dude has mental illness and needs help. I feel bad for him. Smh

    Well, these folks tow the line don't they. Lessons learned in case you weren't listening: IT IS NOT WHAT HE SAID, but exercising the right to say it. Do you agree with him. I don't care. The point is that white people don't have the right to tell black folks how to think. Give it time, it might make sense some day. They can agree or disagree with Malcolm X and other black scholars, but don't tell them or anybody else how to think and express their ideas.

    Kanye is not the most eloquent in speech. He clarified his thoughts on that amendment where he feels slavery has never really been eradicated, that it continues. He has the right to say it without anyone telling him to shut up, specially when he is advocation things he believes are good for black workers.

  • Allihave2say

    I see. They're all using Kanye for their own selfish views. While Kanye's tongue is a double edged sword I knew why he discussed the 13th Amendment abolishment necessity. The Amendment states that people can be enslaved via imprisonment. For centuries after the abolishment of slavery, whites were wrongly incarcerating blacks into servitude aka slaves via the prison system. They continue to do so today. The 13th Amendment as written supports that performance behavior. So slavery has not been 100% eradicated based on the language of the Amendment.

    During the Great Depression when whites were first given welfare, they were also telling the government to take jobs the blacks had and give to "deserving" whites. Meanwhile blacks were not considered citizens so they weren't eligible for welfare at the time of the Great Depression. If the black protested he was beaten, imprisoned and to perform in servitude on the plantation he was share cropping or job site.

    Kanye isn't advocating that people return to slavery, that is not going to make America Great Again by returning humans to free labor and abuse.

    The folks crying wolf need to stop and think about this one.

  • TheOwley

    Thank your for such a great analysis. You see how he's not stay in in his lane for them. Kanye is a bit off but he's not stupid. Also, blacks are not monolithic in their views, not all think alike, same as other groups. For them to think black owe them to stay in a specific worldview is crucial. Many blacks are conservative, love of family, home, marriage, education, etc. don't want to get forced into crap. Black males are very much customers of the slavery system called prison. Incarceration is profitable.

    There is nothing is more threatening that an intelligent black educated man with a job / career, a family man who is not playing that game. Once upon a time it used to be that way. Not saying there weren't horrible times pre civil rights, but the black family was not decimated. Kanye telling people to wake up will get him in trouble with them. I think he's finally coming up for air from that dark place he's been in. And his views are embarrassing Kim, can you believe that. What is he doing to embarrass her. Shouldn't it be the other way around.

  • Allihave2say

    I'm not sure if his views embarrass Kim. I think that Kim isn't able too fully express his thoughts due to whatever he's going through. I'm not a consumer of rap music. I read and I listen to the online stories. Kanye is right now expressing a lot of views about things that go against his wife and her behaviors. He may have encouraged some of Kim's self absorption but Kim is a natural classic narcissist. As her fame has grown so has her narcissism. Kanye disagrees with a lot of what Kim does but is powerless over his wife. So now he's distancing himself from some stressors. This was probably recommend by his doctor.

  • TheOwley

    Kanye has come to the realization that he is broke, she commands over him thru the kids, and worse of all, he signed away his marital rights to half her fortune earned during marriage via a most advantageous prenup written by the mother. He used his money to indulge her and her entire family (I got it honey) while they extended their t-rex arms over the years. Now he is at her mercy financially but she has no power over how he expresses his views.

  • Allihave2say

    I see the observations are so wise. Hmmm…This is how Lamar ended up broke and renting a home. Lamar was on the Lakers, money in the bank and living is best life until he married Chloe. I never heard of him on drugs until he met Khloe who drove a vile of cocaine out of her purse on tv. After they failed to kill him in the brothel he was living in a rented home. No team wanted Lamar after he got with Khloe his life spiraled down. I keep saying that Khloe kept handing him papers to sign on tv that he blindly signed away his assets and his rights to himself.
    SMDH.
    These men have riches and means but no brains. Get a lawyer!

  • TheOwley

    Lamar had issues with drugs and the NBA knew it but it was monitored within the league. When he retired and was off with Khloe is when he deteriorated for the worse. I honestly don't believe he was supposed to make it out alive from that ranch, but that's another story.

    The way it works is like this. Both sides have money and lots of it. He wants to prove he's 'The Man' and doesn't need her to pay for stuff. He's gonna take care of everything; they fly all over the place, private jet, top hotels and resorts, expensive foods and drinks, chefs, nannies, big houses and sponsoring of parties, etc. Since not of these activities are cheap, eventually you see a significant drop in his bank account.

    Kanye accelerated that with his failed fashion line and multiple re-doing of home remodeling. Eventually the cash dried out. He has a little money, but not enough to continue the lavish style at a high level. In the meanwhile the women have been saving theirs since he's paid for everything. It's a huge chapter in their scheme. Last move is the friendly divorce. The guys never know what hit them.
