Stephon Marbury Says Michael Jordan Has Been Robbing the Hood

Former NBA point guard compares his $15 sneakers to MJ's $250 pairs.

Published October 6, 2015

Stephon Marbury recently re-introduced his Starbury sneakers for $15.

The former NBA point guard says he wants to do what Michael Jordan isn't — give back and create affordable access to all. In fact, Marbury thinks Jordan is doing much of the opposite and took to his Twitter account to rant about it.

Marbury doesn't think much of LeBron James either.

Marbury originally came out with his Starbury sneakers in 2006, while he was playing for the New York Knicks.

In relaunching the sneakers, Marbury claims that his shoes and Jordans are made in the same factory in China.

Marbury, a two-time All-Star, played in the NBA from 1996 to 2009 before joining the Chinese Basketball Association, which he still plays for today.
