Stephon Retires!

Our amazing and talented founder played his last professional basketball game on February 11th. All of us at Team Starbury are incredibly proud of his accomplishments on the court and we wish him many blessings in his retirement. Even though it's the end of one era, it's the beginning of a another. We can't wait to see what he does next. Job well done, Stephon!

Stephon Marbury Stars in Biopic, "My Other Home"

We knew he had skills on the basketball court but we didn't know he had acting chops!

Our own Stephon Marbury stars in the biopic, "My Other Home". The film follows his rise in the NBA and his incredible journey to the Chinese Basketball Association. The film premiered in China in August and will be released soon in the US.

The trailer is amazing - take a peek!

Starbury Featured on NPR's Planet Money

When Stephon Marbury was eight years old, the Nike Air Jordan sneakers came out. Kids everywhere wanted to fly like Michael Jordan on the basketball court, and they wanted to wear the sneakers with his name on them too. But they were pricey. Stephon couldn't afford them. Lots of kids couldn't. For years, he wondered if there was a different way.

Two decades later, he had a chance to try a different way himself. When he was an NBA star, Marbury got approached by clothing company Steve & Barry's. They had a crazy idea for a sneaker, and they thought Marbury might be just the celebrity to get behind it.

Today on the show: The story of what happened when an athlete used his name not to make a shoe more expensive than it needed to be, but to make it as cheap as humanly possible.

We look at this experiment and the strange problems that arise when you make a shoe that's so much cheaper than the competition. We also find out what Stephon Marbury is doing right now, on the other side of the world, with another big plan to try a different way of doing things.
