Interesting that the Clippers looked into this and couldn't do it, so now he's suing. Almost as if it was coordinated.

Breaking: Kawhi Leonard has filed a federal lawsuit against Nike. Leonard claims he designed the logo that appeared on his Nike apparel and Nike copyrighted the logo without his consent. https://t.co/LRB0cRTOd0

If anything it seems like a response to them looking into it. I doubt Nike would have sold the rights to it, but they surely can’t sell it now that it’s ownership is in question. But who knows with all this. The timing seems odd for sure.

unless the two are one and the same, it wasn't the clippers who were looking to buy it, it was just kawhi … that would make more sense to me, because I still have a hard time believing the clippers would do that - it would be a clear violation of the cba, possibly serious enough to get the league to forbid them to even sign kawhi.

Imagine if Nike agreed to the supposed Clippers' overture, and said - yes, we are selling to you for 5M. They wouldn't be able to purchase it without running foul of the CBA, so what would be the point in even trying?
