When Yeezy gives a shout, you have to shout back.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young was honored with a nod in Kanye West's new track "Facts," the rapper's recently released Nike diss track, and as soon as the hip-hop and style icon's new bars made their way to Young, he responded by showing his support—on and off the court.

The Team Adidas athlete took to Twitter to sound off on his view of Nike, making it clear his allegiance lies with West and the triple stripe.

To reinforce that point, Young laced up a pair of Yeezy 750 Boosts for the second time in his career in the first half of the Lakers' contest against the Philadelphia 76ers—this time in the new "Core Black" colorway.

Young swapped the kicks out at halftime, but the message was clear: The Adidas-affiliated stand together.
