08:08 AM ET 11.10 | Stephon Marbury took another run at Michael Jordan on Wednesday, calling out his Airness again. On Tuesday, Marbury took to Twitter to address another lockout hot topic: NBA legend and current [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. ... 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 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 ..."

I do not Mike to even respond to this......I mean, Steph..you were a B- player at best. Your like a minor league player compared to Mike. Mike owns a team and is trying to run it into profitability!! That's his Job!! He has not sold out anyone, expecially his fans. Fans make a legacy and he certainly has a global one.

Then again, if he's stable in the Chinese league, maybe he doesn't care, in which case, he's free to say whatever.

"Stable" is a relative term, here.

Marbury maybe crazy as bat ish, but he has a point. However Jordan never pretended to be in it for anyone but himself, so to that you can't call him a sellout. Selfish but not a sellout

Marbury = WHO? M.J. = The Man..............Kiss butt Marbury as you'll never be 1/4
of what MJ is or is worth, but get a grip as Charlotte is a small market, fans are tired
of NBA thugs, and so why should MJ loose 20 million a year when players make too
much playing a game they love? Keep it up greedy players and maybe the NBA will
just go away.

Who gave this moron a voice? Like anyone thinks he has any credible opinions anyway.

Go Home and Eat some vasoline Marbury...

Is anyone really able to say Jordan ISN'T a sellout? Sure it has a negative conotation but that's half his fame. Sports "marketing" has never been the same. So yeah he's a sellout. He's unprincipled. He has no problems with children in third world countries making his shoes for pennies on the dollar. But hey this is American, right? That's what we admire.

maybe the ink from that face tat is finally reaching his brain...........

I agree with Marbury. (I never thought I'd write that.) Jordan got his, now he's working with ownership to make sure no one else ever gets paid as much as he did. To me that's the definition of sell out.

Maybe Jordan realizes that nearly all of the players in the NBA are just a bunch of wannabe, ganster punks that don't deserve to make anymore than a cashier at the 7-11.
