“Obviously I’m going to side with Nike no matter who it is,” said James. “It’s just, it’s family when you talk about Nike, and I’m always on their side no matter what the situation is.”

He also added “We don’t look upon nobody on our side, we just try to put the best athletes that we can out on the floor every night. And Phil Knight’s greatest saying is ‘always listen to the heart of the athlete listen to the words of the athlete. And that’s all it’s about, nothing else.”
