During the 2005-2006 season as a New York Knicks player, Stephon Marbury made a habit of speaking his mind. With the NBA lockout still in full bounce, he’s got lots to say about one person in particular.
Taking to his Twitter account from China, where he’s currently playing, the Brooklyn native is waging a protest against basketball's GOAT and current owner of the Charlotte Bobcats Michael Jordan. He's angry that Jordan is not defending the players during the most recent lockout situation.
Although Marbury, 34, begins his virtual fight by tweeting, “Micheal [sic] Fake Jordan is a sell out. #Period. He forgot which hole he came out of. I said it 'Stephon X Marbury'," he received a great deal of backlash from fans. Some were taken aback while others applauded his voice.
The New York Times recently reported Jordan is leading the owners’ faction and is helping to make closing a deal a hard thing to come by. As a result, Starbury has nothing but harsh words for the six-time championship winner, tweeting, “as great as MJ is, he's always been concerned about himself first and he is a hypocrite.”
