There’s at least one person who hates the addition of William “World Wide Wes” Wesley to the Knicks’ front office. Former Knick Stephon Marbury slammed Wesley on Twitter on Thursday afternoon. “Did you really just now bring world wide sucka to the New York Knicks? And I ain’t talking about a sucka like the sucka we call a sucka,” Marbury said in a video posted to his Twitter account. “Really? You brought this dude here? Why? I’m a real New York Knicks fan. I’ve been a New York Knicks fan since I was a spit. Come on Dolan, man. You gotta be kidding me, man. You brought this dude here? Really? What’s going on, man? There’s gotta be an explanation. Not him! Of all people, you bring this dude here? You bring him to NYC? To New York? He don’t got no credibility here! Nah.”

The Knicks’ hiring of “World Wide Wes,” aka William Wesley, was universally praised on Wednesday as a forward-thinking addition by new team president Leon Rose. One former Knick, however, is against it. Stephon Marbury blasted the move, calling Wesley “world wide sucker,” in a video he posted on Instagram and wrote on Twitter that Wesley is a “kiss a–.”

Stephon Marbury: “C’mon man, c’mon. At New York Knicks, did you really just bring world wide sucker to the New York Knicks. … Really? You brought this dude here? Why? I’m a real New York Knicks fan. I’ve been a New York Knicks fan since I was a [kid]. … C’mon [Jim] Dolan man. You gotta be kidding me, man. You brought this dude here? Really? What’s going on man. There’s gotta be an explanation. Not him. Out of all people, you bring this dude here? You bring him to NYC? To New York? He ain’t got no credibility here. Nah.”
Marbury, 43, says he remains a Knicks fan, which is why he doesn’t like what he’s seeing. “When are we really going to try to win in NY,” he tweeted at the Knicks official account. “The people of NY deserve real New York people leading the way for New Yorkers. These fake kiss a$$ blow up fast cats ain’t going to cut the check other than going into BOA to deposit the check. We sick and tired!”
Stephon Marbury: I really don’t play the ‘what if’ game because ‘if’ doesn’t really exist. But playing with Kev was always fun. I loved playing with Kev. I loved playing in Minnesota. I just couldn’t give seven years of my life living in Minnesota. I grew up in New York in the melting pot where there’s Black, White, Chinese, Puerto Rican, Italian – all different types of races. And entering Minnesota, it’s predominately white. After me leaving Georgia Tech where I lived in Atlanta. So you go from a melting pot, to a place where there is a lot of black people to where you go where it’s 6 percent black people, it was a culture shock to me. So I was evaluating my life. Not just basketball. I’m not saying that I couldn’t have stayed there and played there, but with the snow, how cold it was (it was like 40 below), you’ll wake up and on some days you’ll go outside and if you don’t have this-and-this, you could die. I’m like, ‘I don’t want to die from this – I know I’m going to die one day, but I don’t wanna die from going outside to my car’ …

What’s it like being coached by Marbury? Kyle Fogg: Man, he’s a real life LeBron James out here. The king. They love him to death. I mean, he’s won (three) championships and basically was the big gateway for really talented players to come out here and play. He kind of paved the way and is a hero in Beijing. It’s super dope. We’ll do introductions and he’ll get the loudest cheer in the gym. They love him, and obviously he knows. And he really knows the game, in and out. He works extremely hard, so I have no doubt he’ll have continued success as a coach. But he can’t walk to the airport without a ton of photos. Grown men are nearly crying getting his autograph. It’s crazy. But he’s really good with it.
