Starbury v. Jordan (I wish his last name was Madison)
The Knicks’ Stephon Marbury may be doing something more subversive than the folks at Adbusters, with their $95/pair “anti-consumerist” Unswoosher. He’s hawking a $15/pair athletic shoe under his own nickname, Starbury. The groundbreaking thing is that he actually plans to wear the Starbury on the basketball court. Too bad it’s an ugly shoe, because, as I have previously blogged, Michael Jordan is so committed to maintaining Brand Jordan, that he won’t take any stand that will hurt his shoe sales.
Warren Buffet also proves that love is not about money.
