Stephon Marbury Calls Michael Jordan a Sellout for Not Giving Back to the Black Community

Stephon Marbury is not fond of the greatest NBA player of all-time. Marbury recently blasted Michael Jordan on Twitter for his stance during the NBA lockout and not giving back to the black community.

Marbury On Jordan Being a Sellout:

“Michael Fake Jordan is a sell out. #Period. He forgot which hole he came out of. I said it ‘Stephon X Marbury.'”

“He never did nothing that I knew about to change the life off of the court, other then hit cats over the head for a 100,150 dollar sneakers and still doing it.”

“Jim Brown said it best. Mickey mouse type cat. Wave and take your bread. He doesn’t care about the hood or what’s good in the hood.”

“He made an empire off of our people, and never gave back. No matter how many kids were getting killed over his bumass kicks.”

 Marbury On Jordan’s Stance During the NBA Lockout:

“when he rapped the BULLS for 36 million for one year no ones said nothing about that. We said he’s Mike he should. Now look!”

“MJ went from MJ the black cat to a guy who forgot he was a player. Sell your team if you can’t make a profit.. Your just a regular dude now!”

“He’s just a man. I know he’s some people’s God, but real is real. Dude forgot he played and demanded millions.”

Jordan, now the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, does not want players to receive more than 47 percent of the league’s annual revenue. Current NBA players have disagreed with Jordan, but Marbury, who currently plays basketball in China, has been the most vocal. His criticism of Jordan’s contributions, or lack there of, to the black community is also eye-opening.

Has Jordan not done enough for the black community, or is Marbury being overcritical? –amir shaw
