Stephen Jackson’s Pregame Weed Ritual Surprises No One
Former NBA player Stephen Jackson shared a story on Monday about how he enjoyed to smoke weed before games after he passed the four mandatory drug tests of the season. To me, this is the least surprising thing ever. I don’t know where I stand when it comes to dudes getting high before sporting events. Does it affect performance? Does it hone in on vision? I have a lot of questions about smoking weed before a sporting event.

I feel like a square for being this much in the woods about weed. I remember when I had a teammate in football who made a claim he smoked a little bit before a game, and I’m pretty sure he rushed for 100+ yards with two touchdowns. From an outsider perspective, I feel like you can only smoke a little bit before a game, and if you overdo it, you’re fucked.
I’m guessing the latter happened with Jackson when it came to his time during the Milwaukee Bucks. My guess is Jackson smoked just enough to not give a shit. He’s a fun NBA player that’s the all-time leader in ‘Better on a team that’s not your own.’
