Nba Ban Kanye Yeezy Basketball 1

The NBA Will Reportedly Ban Kanye's New Yeezys

The 300 plus samples Kanye went through to make his Yeezy BSKTBL sneakers might not cut it, as the NBA reportedly won’t allow them on court. ESPN’s tenured basketball and sneakers expert, Nick De Paula, reports that ‘the league office would ban the current version of the sneaker on court’.

This isn’t because of odd colouration — the NBA’s new rules allow players to do whatever they want in that regard — but the Yeezy’s material. The reflective heel detailing will likely be ‘distracting for both in-arena spectators and television viewers’, meaning Kanye will have to go back into the sampling process before adidas athletes can bring Ye’s on-court dreams to fruition.
