The Game is not too happy with Nike right now. He recently took to his Instagram page to let his fans know that they would not see him or his crew in the Drew League this year because they refused to be bullied by corporate companies today or ever. Apparently The Game and Nike couldn't come to an agreement on how the organization would continue to run. The Game has a problem with a company taking a home grown organization and making it "go corporate" because according to him, when it goes corporate it takes the raw original format and waters it down. It then becomes something forced versus something real and authentic for the neighborhood. The downside is that kids used to seeing their favorite professional athletes playing basketball in their neighborhood for free will no longer have this opportunity until they come to some sort of agreement, or until someone else launches a similar project. Check out the rest of The Game's statement below.
