With his connections in China, Marbury has been able to make deal with a Chinese mask vendor to sell 10 million masks to New York. Furthermore, Stephon Marbury is getting the masks at cost for $2.75. Typically, the retailers sell the masks for $7.50 and quoted the state on that price before Marbury got involved.
Stephon Marbury reached out to Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, a conjectural 2021 mayoral candidate who has worked with Marbury in philanthropy in the past, to tell him the city no longer needs to pay an absurd price to keep their citizens & first responders safe.
“At the end of the day, I am from Brooklyn. This is something that is close and dear to my heart as far as being able to help New York.”
“I have family there in Coney Island, a lot of family … who are affected by this, so I know how important it is for people to have masks during this time.”Stephon Marbury via New York Post
According to the New York Post, the masks would be delivered in bulk packages of 2 million over the span of 5 weeks.
