Rapper Shad Moss recently shared a funny anecdote on the 'UnderGround Lounge' podcast about Jordan throwing away his Reebok 'Allen Iverson' shoes during a visit to the legend's Chicago home. Marcus Jordan warned Shad Moss about wearing the rival brand, leading to a hilarious incident where MJ disposed of the shoes the very next morning.
