"You know? And I said, 'Well, we'll talk about that after you decide'". Manning replies that he thought he was supposed to receive all cash but "if u need to do it by check" make it out to "LINCOLN PREP BOYS BASKETBALL FOUNDATION, all caps".

Top shoe brand Nike has refused to react to the allegations made by celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti that it bribed high school athletes including Zion Williamson for joining "Nike" colleges via family members.

During Thursday's edition of ESPN's The Jump, it was revealed that there is an unnamed company willing to offer Williamson over $10 million per year.

Federal prosecutors in California and NY allege that Avenatti threatened to expose misconduct by Nike employees regarding NCAA rules violations involving a Nike-sponsored AAU team unless he received pay.

On Friday night, Avenatti tweeted: "Tmrw promises to be exciting".

This story was updated Saturday at 7:25 p.m.to include Nike's statement to The Oregonian.

Michael Avenatti dumped 41-pages of documents over the weekend which he claims are "evidence showing Nike bribed players to attend "Nike" colleges".

Island Health confirms case of tuberculosis in Victoria
Island Health is asking people who may have been exposed to measles to monitor for symptoms for 21 days after the exposure date . This is the 23rd confirmed case of the measles in B.C. this year and the third on Vancouver Island.

Avenatti said all the new evidence has been passed on to law enforcement.

Avenatti's previous allegations included claims against former Arizona player Deandre Ayton and OR player Bol Bol. "Just Do It Nike!".

Avenatti, best known for representing former porn star Stormy Daniels in a failed defamation suit against President Donald Trump, has also alleged Nike paid multiple prep basketball stars such as Deandre Ayton and Bol Bol. "Nike will continue its cooperation with the government's investigation into grassroots basketball and the related extortion case", the apparel company said in a statement via Dan Wetzel. Others linked to Ayton and Bol have either declined comment or were unavailable.

Previous allegations included former Arizona star Deandre Ayton and OR freshman Bol Bol.

McCoy left UNLV after one season and now plays for the Wisconsin Herd of the G League. "Like whoever drafts me, that's where I want to be", said Williamson, who reacted to questions implying he wouldn't want to play for the lottery-odds-leading Knicks by shaking his head and putting his massive hand over his face.

Williamson was not a unanimous pick for either player of the year award he took home Friday night, but he is universally expected to be the first player drafted in June. Bol's handler received $57,000 in 2017, according to Avenatti. Additional details in the documents suggest that some of the payments were billed to Nike through fraudulent invoices disguised as business expenses.

Manning was an assistant basketball coach at Lincoln in the late 1990s and early 2000s under Charlie Paulk, his step father, but he has had no official connection to the program for years.
