NBA superstar LeBron James is waving the Nike flag loud and proud. The Los Angeles Lakers leader has saluted longtime pal Drake on throwing a little shade at one of the iconic check’s biggest competitor.

Heading into the weekend, LBJ went to his Instagram Story to acknowledge Drake’s tell-all Nike/Adidas lyric from Travis Scott‘s “Sicko Mode” collabo.

This week, social media realized Drake might have fired off a big bullet at Adidas with a Nike shout-out.

Drake’s rumored jump from Nike to adidas was at the center of his recent beef with Pusha-T, but failed to materialize. During the Toronto rapper’s appearance on Travis Scott’s “SICKO MODE,” he seems to reference sticking with Jordan brand. The three-part ASTROWORLD track is produced by Hit-Boy, OZ, Tay Keith, and CuBeatz. Shortly after the second beat switch, Drake appears to allude to both apparel brands. Genius contributor J-Bankrollz breaks it down in an annotation: “Jesus Christ (yeah), checks over stripes (yeah) That’s what I like (yeah), that’s what we like (yeah)” (Genius)

On Travis Scott’s previously released “Ghostface Killers” anthem, he gives Nike the edge over Adidas with a similar reference.

“Please need the energy, only got a night, yeah (it’s lit)/Nike boys, we don’t do three stripes (yeah)/I’m living for my niggas that do life, yeah” (“Ghostface Killers”)

Back in May, NBA icon Michael Jordan‘s son trolled Drake over his rumored pending Adidas contract.
