Default Marbury: Jordan is a sellout

On Tuesday, Marbury took to Twitter to address another lockout hot topic: NBA legend and current Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan's role as a hard-liner in these negotiations.

Marbury, as per usual, minced no words.
Micheal Fake Jordan is a sell out. #Period. He forgot which hole he came out of. I said it "Stephon X Marbury"... 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! ... When he rapped the Bulls for 36 million for one year no ones said nothing about that...

He's just a man. I know he's some people's GOd but real is real. Dude forgot he played and demanded millions... he wasn't my idol I just loved his game. 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. Micky mouse type cat. Wave and break you pocket for as long as he can.

he didn't create nothing. The game was played way before him...

Marbury hits on similar criticisms leveled at Jordan by current NBA players recently. The main charge is hypocrisy, because Jordan was one a strong advocate for players' rights as a player. But Marbury goes further than Washington Wizards guard Nick Young, Indiana Pacers wing Paul George, and Golden State Warriors forward Klay Thompson went in their criticism. Marbury questions Jordan's loyalty to his race, attempts to undercut his importance to basketball as a whole, and slams Jordan for charging so much money for his signature sneakers.

In one breath, Marbury accuses Jordan of being a selfish hypocrite working against his race's best interests while receiving too much credit for his contributions to his sports. That's not just "keeping it 100," that's more like keeping it approximately 284. He went in so far he's tweeting from a bathtub filled with magma.
