Dennis Rodman, the NBA Hall of Famer, has accused Travis Scott of copying the backward swoosh he helped introduce with the Nike Air Darwin. During a recent sneaker convention, the five-time NBA champion claimed Scott used the same logo flip on his Air Jordan collaborations that the sportswear brand had on the Nike Air Darwin.
“Travis Scott has copied my shoe,” Rodman said. “I was the first guy to do mine backward when I was playing with the Chicago Bulls. Come on, Travis, give me some credit. You copied my shit. This ain’t new, but either way, congratulations.” Sneaker enthusiasts lost their minds when La Flame and Jordan Brand teased the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG in 2019. The sneaker came in a Mocha colorway with an accompanying backward Nike swoosh and had many people believe that Travis and Nike were doing something innovative.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been forced to withdraw from the England squad after picking up a knock against Fulham on Sunday. As the dust settled on a truly chaotic final 20 minutes in the FA Cup quarter-final between Manchester United and Fulham, Rashford was withdrawn by Erik ten Hag in the 83rd minute with the Red Devils then 2-1 ahead. It has since been confirmed that the 25-year-old picked up a knock in the eventual 3-1 win, and has been forced to withdraw from the England squad for their upcoming duo of games as a result.
The Three Lions meet this week to kick off their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, with games against Italy and Ukraine awaiting Gareth Southgate‘s side. Rashford was expected to be a part of that squad following his sensational form this season that saw him earn both club and Premier League player of the month awards for February, but the knock has now ensured he will remain at Carrington for the next two weeks instead. United state on their website that Rashford will “hopefully be available” for their away trip to Newcastle when club football returns in April, while colleagues Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw will continue with England as expected.
