NBA: Kyrie Irving ‘does not cut’ after the break with Nike: “I am free”

Kyrie Irving’s (almost legendary) ability to get into ‘puddles’ has a new case. The point guard for the Brookyln Nets received official confirmation of his departure from Nike due to the anti-Semitic affair and was quick to reply. In their own way and regardless, as almost always, what consequences may be generated from their way of acting. On this occasion, answering the sports brand… Through his own shoes.

Leaving Nike does not directly mean that Irving should use another brand. In fact, it is normal to play with its camouflaged line, since on many occasions it is a perfect adaptation to your foot and way of playing. Before the Hornets he jumped with a model of his black Kyrie 3, with orange and gold details. But with a message.

Without the traditional ‘Swoosh’ and with the phrase ‘I am free. Thank God… I am”, on one side. Directly related to Ye’s song -formerly Kanye West- “Someday we’ll all be fee”, another personality noted for his anti-Semitic links. In addition, on the other side Irving repeats ‘stick’ with a “logo here” that is perfectly noticeable as it is on the brand’s ‘Swoosh’.

Irving stopped receiving 11 million dollars after his departure from the brand. In addition, its line of Kyrie’s, logically, stops production and reduces its price (from 140 to 70 dollars in the most expensive on the official website, for example). Ja Morant is its substitute as an emblem of the brand with its own line.

In sports, the Nets beat the Hornets… With a sensational Kyrie Irving as he scored 33 points. The perfect reflection of a historical talent with more shadows than lights due to decisions that many still cannot understand.
