Stephon Marbury Drops Da Mic On Michael Jordan … with $15 Kicks!

    Just in case you didn’t know it before … thanks to Stephon Marbury, you’ll likely never again forget the fact that Michael Jordan doesn’t care about Black people!!! That’s exactly what Marbury recently broke Jordan, and his over-priced — made-in-China for five-bucks a pair, Air Jordans — down to!!!

    “Jordan has been robbing the hood since. Kids dying for shoes and the only face this dude makes is I don’t care. The time will change!”

    You may recall … back in 2006, Marbury launched a line of “NBA quality” sneakers that cost just $14.98, called the Starbury One. “Nearly anyone could afford them,” reports a source. “But after a few years the line folded, as did Marbury’s NBA career.” Now that Marbury has regained pop-rank as “China’s most famous basketball player” … the former New York Knicks baller is about to bring back Starbury sneakers.

    “The shoes we have are the exact shoes people are spending $200 on.”

    ThinkProgress Reports:

    “Michael Jordan hasn’t done or said anything to address it, even as the Air Jordan brand garners a 55 percent market share in U.S. basketball and more than $2.25 billion in annual profits, most from re-releases of earlier sneakers. In 2013, consumers spent $6.46 billion on athletic shoes. While Air Jordan and other brands don’t account for the total, experts say it’s a testament to people’s desire to make a fashion statement rather than engage in physical activity. This happens to especially be the case for black consumers, who have come to know these shoe brands via hip-hop culture and movies.”

    2. Black people will still buy Jordans. They won't buy the cheaper brand. Know why? Negroes buy what they want and beg for what they need.

      • i agree. kids im my hood kids, fight tease other kids and rob and kill over jordans. some mothers willl spend some of their rent money on jordans for their kids. and yes Jordan himself wont speak on this nonsense. why should he money is his god, and he see how stupid some of our people are.

      • @Is it just me, SO TRUE!!
        Laughing!

        JUST like, ….I KNOW a chick that's (ALWAYS) BORROWING THINGS …LIKE….HER NEIGHBOR'S SHOES, CAKE PAN, VACUUM, ….THINGS like THAT, BUT,….HER DADDY DIED, AND (SHE SAYS that HE "LEFT her OVER $100,000)!!!"

        BUT, SHE'S (STILL) "BORROWING"!!
        SMH!!
        "PITIFUL!!"
        Laughing!

    3. man, I love the damn Starbury store!!1 Serena and others brought their clothing and shoe lines there and it was all affordable af!! come home Stephon .. I got a hot $400 to clown with .. boooyah!

    4. Outside Media and other external influences such as advertisements, music, videos, etc. got us thirsty for things we don't need. It didn't start with Jordans. Every time a new fad comes out mofos run to the store to cop it. When it becomes popular and "in" to put a pile of isht on top of your head, mofos goin to be like, where you cop that pile of isht at? That isht has a nice brown hue…Isht is hype. Walking down the street smelling like mielda a.k.a. isht in Spanish.

      • @TB, laughing!

        NOT ME, SIS!! "I'M (A LEADER), 'NOT' (A FOLLOWER)!!" …..TOOK ME YEARS to get on THAT MYSPACE, then (FINALLY) YOUTUBE! Laughing!

        "I MARCH to the beat of (MY OWN) DRUM", (& LOVE it)!! 😉

      • I (STILL) HAVE MY: AGNER, CALVIN KLEIN, RALPH LAUREN, CHANEL, FENDI, FOSSIL, (AND ALL of those "CLASSIC" OLD School PURSES), that I LIKE, & (STILL) GET COMPLIMENTS on THEM, IN ADDITION to THE NEW School BAGS!! 😉
        Laughing!

        "IDC WHAT (THE WORLD) does, ….I DO ME!!!" 😉 YA KNOW? 🙂

    5. Jordan is a sell out one of many so called brothas selling out. Look who is getting his legacy money now a white latina. Kids killing each other over his cheap shoes Fuck Mike!!

    6. Sooo, ain't nobody gonna talk about the fact that the first time he tried this the shoeline flopped. It's not about the shoes being too high; it's about the mentality of wanting to be better than everybody else. I promise you, if Jordan dropped a $15 dollar shoe tomorrow, it'd be the lowest selling edition ever. People would be busting on you on a daily basis– "Bwahahahaaa, nigga got them rebate J's. He couldn't afford the 11's."

      And no, it's not Jordan's fault some a-hole shoots a man in the street for his shoes.

      • @Scorpiess, I'VE (ONLY) owned 1 PAIR OF JORDAN'S (BACK in '93, OR '94)! I HATE it NOW! Laughing!

        …BY MY SONS having BIG FEET, (SIZE 12s), I HAD to spend $100 + (APIECE), SEVERAL times A YEAR!

        THEY wore @ FIRST FILAS, & REEBOKS, THEN NIKES, & JORDANS!
        BIG FEET! Laughing!

    7. Jordan won't be the first nor the last to sell out. A lot of brothers struggle with this "wealth" thing now. Since the day rap and sports gave brothers in our neighborhoods a lucrative way to make a living, it has allowed our men to become out of touch with what's really important. Your children, your family, your community. The youth look up to these dudes, it's a shame that all they can think of when they get paid is pu$$y and more money. Our values as a community has seriously wavered. Nothing wrong with making money it's what they money makes you into that is concerning. The poor youth in our community who are mostly Black and Latin looked up to this man and idolized him, wanted to "Be Like Mike"…smdh.

    8. LMAOOO, I personally was a HUGE Julius Errrrrrrrrving fan. He's the reason I play and coach basketball to this day. And the Dr. NEVER had his own shoe line, even though he did endorse Converse.

      • @GBU (FOR "TEACHING" these KIDS), SIS!!!

    10. @TB, AMEN, SIS!!! "THANK you!!" 🙂

    13. It's sad tht a black man who makes a pile of money within the law is automatically branded a sell out.

      • It's (EVEN MORE) "sad" HOW SAID BLACK man TREATS OTHERS (ONCE HE MAKES that "PILE OF MONEY")!!

        JUST like MJ WOULDN'T TAKE a PIC w/CHAMILLIONAIRE, (A "NIGGA"), YET, HE WOULD take a pic …..W/MACLEMORE sp? …(A WHITE boy)!! "HMMM!!!"

        "SCREW HIM!!!"

      • I KNOW THAT'S RIGHT!!

        "THEY (COULD NEVER) 'OWN' (ME)!!
        I 'REBEL' (AGAINST SUCH)!!"

        "And, IF THIS was SLAVERY DAYS, (I'D BE: A 'RUNAWAY' SLAVE, OR….A DEAD slave)!!!" 😉

        "Cuz, I'M (NOT) GOIN'"….(FOR THE 'OKEY-DOKE'!!!"

        "EVER!!"

        KILL ME FIRST, (& GET IT OVER with) ALREADY!!!
        LAUGHING@ME!!

        I'M SERIOUS, THOUGH!!

    14. It's also important to tell you that Michael Jordan has invested millions of dollars in the Prison Industrial Complex. This is the same Prison Industrial Complex that is responsible for the unconstitutional, mass incarceration of black people. Instead of spending $200 dollars buying Michael Jordan's shoes, black people should spend $20 dollars and buy Dr. Michelle Alexander's book The New Jim Crow.

    15. Let's (ALL) SAY IT (TOGETHER), .."SCREW MICHAEL JORDAN'S (SELF-HATING), …..DARK-SKIN HATING, ….ONLY love: "LIGHT, (BRIGHT), & DARN-NEAR WHITE……BALD-headed, (BEADY-EYED), "KNOBBY-KNEED" BUTT!!!"

      OK?!
      Laughing!
      "SELL-OUT SUCKA!!" 😛

        • Laughing!

          I'D buy 6 PAIR of MARBURY'S (OL' CHEAP LOOKIN', $15 SHOES), BEFORE I GIVE MJ'S OL' ELITIST, (COLOR-STRUCK), COONIN' BUTT (ONE RED CENT)!!

          $15×6=$90+ TAX! $100 should GET IT!!

    16. AND, I (CAN'T) PUT no "CHEAP" SHOES on MY FEET! Laughing!
      Cuz, I WEAR 91/2's, (& SOME 10's)! Ijs…."IT'S THE PRINCIPLE!!"

      "MJ SUCKS!!" 😛 LMBBO!
      "COON RAT CHRONICLES!!"
      "FILE IT!!" 😉 LMBBO AGAIN!!

      OH, GOOGLE Andrew "I'M NOT GAY (NO MORE) Caldwell"…..Look UP HIS VIDEO (IN CHURCH)! Laughing!
      WOWWW, JUST…WOWWW!!
      Laughing!

    17. Of course Micheal Jordan doesn't care.Its all about the $$ for him.He probably doesn't even wear Jordans! Jordans are most often worn by people residing in inner city areas who are struggling or half past broke. Some of our people love to style and profile rocking the latest designer gear. They will stand out in the cold,rain,or snow for 24 hrs to cop a pair of these over priced and over rated sneakers, trying to keep up with the Jones and impress people. Now some black people can afford them but I still find it silly to pay that much for a pair of sneakers that cost so little to make. They make Jordan and company rich, while most of them are at the bottom of the income totem pole.
