Last mobnth, Stormi Daniels former lawyer and noted Trump critic Michael Avenatti was arrested and is currently facing charges of trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to publicize claims that the comnpany authorized payments to the families of top high school basketball players.

Avenatti denied that he was “technically” extorting Nike and is now releasing information in attempt to exonerate himself.

Last night Avenatti claimed that Zion Williamson’s mother took payments from Nike as a “consultant” back in 2016/17 as way to get him to play for Duke.

Avenatti continued his assault against Nike by releasing “evidence” of family members of certain players receiving money from Nike.

Avenatti seems intent on destroying Nike and their executives following his arrest.
