Former NBA star Stephon Marbury took to Twitter this week to promote the reboot of his sneaker brand and to criticize legendary basketball star and entrepreneur Michael Jordan.
The Coney Island native, who is currently playing ball for the Beijing Ducks, used the social media platform as a soapbox to call Jordan "greedy" and accuse him of "robbing the hood" with his high-priced Nike sneakers.
Marbury also blamed Jordan for strings of violence associated with his trademarked, limited edition shoes.
Nike did not immediately respond to request for comment.
Marbury's line of $15 sneakers, called Starbury, initially launched in 2006 for under $10, but folded in 2009 when Steve & Barry's, the chain of stores partnering with the athlete, filed for bankruptcy. He announced on Instragram in September that his footwear brand would be making a comeback.
