NBA Star Nick Young Reacts To Michael Jordan’s Son Responding To Kanye West’s “Facts”: “Adidas Won This Year”

Los Angeles Lakers star Nick Young has stepped forward to react to buzz NBA icon Michael Jordan’s son, Marcus, sparked by responding to rapper Kanye West’s “Facts” song.

Although he understands Marcus’ loyalty to his father and Team Nike, Young stood behind the Adidas-driven song.

“There’s nothing you could really say about the issue. What [Kanye’s] been doing with shoes and clothes, 2015 was Kanye’s year. I understand [Marcus] defending his pops but I think we won this year. Adidas won this year.” (Billboard)

Young also revealed how he heard about Ye’s name-dropping “Facts” anthem last week.

“I was on my way home, trying to get dressed for my New Year’s event and a couple of my teammates called and texted me [about the song] and I didn’t know what they was talkin’ about. I was like, ‘Y’all playin’, y’all lyin’, man.’ They sent me the SoundCloud [link] and I was like, ‘Aw, it’s over. I’m the man now.’” (Billboard)

Marcus Jordan laughed up Yeezy’s jabs toward his dad’s parent company, Nike, on Twitter Saturday (January 2).

On the song’s hook, Yeezy takes ample jabs at Jordan’s Jumpman sneaker brand.

“Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman/Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman (Yo!)” (“Facts”)

    Kanye going super hard at Nike. This song is genius because putting Nike on notice after you had such a successful year with their main competitor will bolster your brand and your product in the minds of the demographic that buy your product. Every time someone thinks of the Jordan brand now, they will think of Yeezy’s too… pure genius.

    And Nick Young or Swaggy P? A dude that nicknames himself that type of nickname will never be taken seriously. Sorry, Adidas couldn’t beat Nike in a million years. If you all did your research, Under Amour is the only one competing with Nike right now in terms of sales and popularity.

    Of course he would say this……he’s under contract with adidas and gets paid to wear yeezys …..

    Kanye’s shoes are terrible! It’s hard to imagine Adidas being bigger than Nike but I think the world wear’s more Adidas than Nike. Puma is big a lot of countries too. I used to love Kanye, I really wish he would disappear now!

    Facts# Holiday
    Nike +18.6 %
    Under Armour + 98.6 %
    Adidas – 7.7 %

    Adidas took a hit because they are trying to make everything a limited edition. Put out more product lower the cost on somethings and they should see an increase. BTW I haven’t seen anyone rocking the homeless adidas gear!
