From the man who demonstrated how eating Vaseline is good for your health, former Timberwolves basketball player Stephon Marbury has gone frontal and confirmed: Yes, that indeed was him on-camera smoking marijuana.
Marbury, who lives in Los Angeles, is turning the Internet lens on himself for all to see in his live stream at www.justin.tv/tv.
On Wednesday, the celebrity-watching TMZ.com posted video of Marbury appearing to smoke a joint. That speculation was put to rest when TMZ followed up with another clip Thursday showing Marbury laughing and telling his viewers: "I smoke marijuana ... yep ... you saw me."
From there, the 32-year-old free agent who played last season for the Boston Celtics, added, "I'm not under contract ... I smoke weed occasionally. ... I'm not driving ... I'm following the rules."
Last month before the camera, a shirtless Marbury downed a glob of Vaseline and explained that he was eating the slippery stuff to relieve his sore throat.
Marbury joined the Timberwolves as a rookie in 1996 and played for Minnesota until being traded in March 1999.
