Stephon Marbury takes virtual swings at Jordan on Twitter

Nov 9, 2011, 4:45 PM EDT


The venom players have directed at Michael Jordan and his role as a lockout hardliner continue. They are frustrated witha  guy that stays quiet in meetings then talks tough later. Nick Young said hewouldn’t wear Jordan-brand shoes any longer and question the GOAT.

And now Stephen Marbury has entered the fray with his usual subtleness. Marbury tweeted this Tuesday night (via Ball Don’t Lie).

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!

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

As our own Matt Moore talked about over the weekend (and other writers have noted as well): This is just Jordan being Jordan. He is out for himself and must win at everything. That made him a great player. It works out less well in other aspects of his life.

But now he’s an owner, so he wants to crush the players. Marbury can say Jordan has forgotten where he came from, but nothing here is out of character.

    And the rest of NBA fans forgot where Stephon Marbury was.

    Haha, Jordan is Wall Street, and players are OWS @ zucotti park

    Stephon Marbury should take virtual swings at reality and relevancy. The NBA plays on planet Earth. A planet he has not been a habitant of in years.

      maybe but it doesn’t make him wrong in this case.

    At least MJ didn’t force a trade to be reattached to his mothers umbilical cord.

    Lmao. Jordan could care less what these players think. And, I’m not giving up my J’s for nothing.

    Its just funny these players expect Jordan to act and think as if he is still a player!! Grow up, maybe the owners are losing respect for the players as well…….does that give them the right to whine like little kids? To the players & owners, either get a deal done or keep your mouth shut! Then choose the sneakers you want to wear…….Jordan is fine without you

    At least Stephon got P-E-R-I-O-D spelled correctly.

    Marbury is a pu**y.

    Marbury is a bigger disgrace to black people than Michael Jordan could EVER be!!!!

    He dressed up in a jersey and STOLE money!!!!

    When the majority of the NBA’s customers are white and the product NEEDS to be patronized to them, he did the one thing that would truly anger them because they could NEVER do the stuff that he’s done with all the teams he’s played for!!!!!

    Marbury: waste of talent, psychological mess, cash whore, and disgrace!!!!

    Marbury is a crazy s.o.b. but he got it right on this one. All you media folk can spin it like you have in Jordans favor but if it was, lets say…Will Purdue that owned the Bobcats and was saying what his Airness was saying, ya’ll would’ve ripped him a new one. Truth be told…

      Probably not, seeing as I side with the owners for the most part. I’m sure Kurt here probably would of though, seeing as he supports he union harder than Billy Hunter.
      Any employee getting 50% of the income should be totally thrilled. That doesn’t happen anywhere. They have a unique talent set, but no more unique than any of the athletes in the other leagues. The players inthe other leagues are nowhere near their percentage.

      Here’s an idea. Work on your game, and actually learn now to play the game of basketball. Maybe then the league will make money. Since players are guranteed a %, they will make more money

    Oh, and for all the younger folks, my joke was aimed at Shaq. Look it up. :)
