    :mjgrin:
    Watching Stephon Marbury’s “A Kid from Coney Island” doc on Netflix, this topic of the Starbury brand was brought up:

    :mjpls:

    Stephon, rightfully, remarked that he would rather own than be owned.

    https://nypost.com/2007/03/30/stephon-lebron-in-shoe-war/

    Lebron, perhaps in his youthful ignorance and misguided Nike loyalty, torpedoed a black business that was providing quality, basketball sneakers for lower income families.

    For what it’s worth, I don’t believe he would make those same statements now. :troll:

    Check out the documentary out on Netflix now

    But it ain’t the same Material tho.

    For example the the LeBron 17’s got two zoom pods in the front and a large air max unit in the back and shoe is comfortable as hell.

    You not getting that in a $20 dollar retail shoe.
