Pulled over in his Porsche.
Many NBA watchers wonder how the hell Marcus Camby can keep playing at the ancient age of 37.

We may have our answer. And as with so many things, it's weed.

Camby was arrested earlier this week in Pearland for marijuana possession, reports the Pearland Journal.

How did it happen? Again, the answer seems to be weed:

Police officials say officers pulled over Camby's black Porsche around midnight on when he was spotted driving north on Cullen Boulevard with a sun screen device blocking the front window.

Driving with a sunscreen over the front window? Must have been high.

The cops say they smelled pot, and Camby gave permission to search the car. They "discovered what appeared to be several marijuana cigarettes and a baggie with a small amount of the same substance hidden under the front seat. Both suspects denied ownership of the marijuana," the Journal says.

Further bad news for the Portland Trail Blazer and one-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year: He was in a school zone at the time.

Stupid jail blazers. Always fucking up. Doing stupid shit. They have been staying out of trouble for a little while and people here in Portland are all happy that mabe they will stop being a stain on our city. I knew it would only be a matter of time. Loser.

That's nothing.  Jerome Walton of the Bengals got busted with eight pounds.  As my high school band director used to say, if you're going to make a mistake, make a big one.

Can anyone explain to me the connection between Marc Camby and Pearland or even greater Houston as it likes to term itself?  Looked at dude's Wiki page, he is from Connecticut.  Chron.com says dude has a home in Pearland, but why? I get Houston is the shit and all, but why have a home here if you aren't from here?  Not like this is an awesome place to summer.  Can Pendergast answer this?

Could be it's just extra real estate holdings, maybe a rental property, who knows. Just for the record, i live not too terribly far from Pearland and it's really nice around here. Lots of lakes, Galveston bay, beaches and whatnot. It's not Connecticut mind you, but it's not too bad.
