The NBA is Banning the YEEZY Basketball Sneaker
Those 300 plus samples Kanye went through to make his Yeezy BSKTBL sneakers might have all been in vein, as the NBA are reportedly banning them from the hardwood.
ESPN’s basketball and sneaker god, Nick De Paula, reports that ‘the league office would ban the current version of the sneaker on court.’
And it’s not because of it’s colors, with the NBA’s new rule to allow players to do whatever they want when it comes to colroways — it’s because of it’s materials.
In a fair-call, the NBA are saying that the heel’s reflective detailing will likely be ‘distracting for both in-arena spectators and television viewers’, meaning Kanye will have to go back to the drawing board to make his hoop dream a reality.
