Some fans responded to Kaepernick's sponsorship deal by cutting or burning gear with Nike's signature swoosh logo.

Jenkins said Nike's commercial is changing the portrayal of Kaepernick in the public eye.

Iguodala, a long-time Nike athlete, has never been shy in speaking about social issues, and this isn't the first time he's shown his support for Kaepernick and the brand and what they stand for.
