Nike App No Longer Listing Ja Morant’s Hunger Sneakers Ahead Of Release
On Sunday, Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant was once again seen holding a gun in an Instagram Live video.
Adam Silver is incredibly disappointed, the NBA has already launched an investigation, while the Grizzlies have already gone a step further, suspending Morant from all team activities.
While executives from other NBA franchises assume that the All-Star will at least face a suspension of half a season, many are wondering how the companies Morant works with will respond to the new video.
We may now have gotten a first answer to that question. The Nike App is no longer listing Ja Morant’s Hunger sneakers, that have been expected to release May 25, per the Commercial Appeal:
Ja Morant’s Hunger Ja 1 sneakers were no longer listed on the Nike or Finish Line apps early Thursday morning.
The Hunger Ja 1s have been expected to release May 25. The mismatch red and blue colorway was listed on both the Finish Line and Nike apps as recently as Tuesday.
Nike did the same thing with Kyrie Irving’s signature sneakers, before terminating his contract.
