Michael Avenatti Alleges That Nike Paid Bribes To Families Of Top College Basketball Recruits

Infamous attorney Michael Avenatti made claims on Saturday that Nike “bribed over 100 basketball players” in a bid to influence them to attend colleges where Nike had contracts.

Avenatti who has threatened to release evidence of the alleged bribes in the past actually released a slew of documents via Dropbox.

The documents allegedly show that Nike made payments to associates of former Arizona star Deandre Ayton (now with the Phoenix Suns), Oregon’s Bol Bol and former UNLV player Brandon McCoy.

The information is detailed and alleged to show that $83,000 in payments were made to Ayton’s associates, while those affiliated with Bol received more than $57,000 and McCoy’s associates received $30,000.

Avenatti continued to make claims via Twitter that Duke star Zion Williamson’s mother received “consulting” fees from Nike that were really a “bribe” to influence the top player’s decision to attend Duke, which does have a Nike contract.

“The evidence is now in the hands of law enforcement,” Avenatti tweeted.

The “celebrity” attorney is also facing his own legal troubles, after being arrested last month for allegedly trying to extort more than $20 million from Nike with threatening to release damaging information.
