Marbury Eats Vaseline

in Quest to Be

Like Oprah

7/27/2009 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We're approaching the 24th hour of Stephon Marbury's absolutely nonsensical web-rant -- and now the basketball star is resorting to eating Vaseline right out of the jar.

Stephon Marbury: Click to watch
Still not wearing a shirt, Marbury -- who insists he's neither on drugs nor out of his mind -- threw down a finger-full of the petroleum jelly ... and then declared he wanted someone to write him a check for "a billion dollars" so he could start his own TV network "like Oprah."

For the record, we contacted the good people at Vaseline about the incident, who told us "Vaseline is for external use only -- it is not intended for eating ... I don't know what he's trying to prove."

Neither do we.

P.S. -- He's still going strong, click here to check it out.

Isn't anyone concerned about the mental condition of Marbury??? I mean, shouldn't someone reach out and help him? He is obviously having some sort of breakdown - this is not funny at all - he's crying out for help and no one seems to be doing anything. It's disturbing!

He’s probably crying about some of the things I just read in this SET MAGAZINE interview. He looks a lot different in this video than the one I saw on www.setmagazine.com.

I hope he's not doing an Amy Winehouse, smoking crack.
