Brandon Roy: ‘I don’t smoke marijuana’

“It’s something I shouldn’t have been involved in. I don’t smoke marijuana. I don’t think kids should do it. I’m against those things. I just feel really bad that that’s something that’s associated with my name and my family. And that’s not what we’re about.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Credit Brandon Roy for admitting poor judgement.

The Portland Trail Blazers star is apologizing for an inadvertant cameo in a music video that depicts marijuana use. 

Apparently, Roy is old friends with Seattle rappers Cali and Cavalli and allowed the duo to film him at a basketball tournament, which was then edited into the group’s video for What They Want.

Jamal Crawford, an Emerald City native and Atlanta Hawk, also appears in the video. Moments after Crawford and Roy’s apperance, a member of the group’s entourage is smoking marijuana into the camera.

Watch the video for What They Want and then watch Roy’s apology to Blazers’ Edge. Is too much being made of a ‘little smoke’?
