Former NBA player Sebastian Telfair was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison Monday on a gun possession charge, according to Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez. 

Telfair was convicted of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon in April. He was arrested in July 2017 after police found a loaded gun in his pickup truck during a traffic stop in Prospect Heights.

:nonono:

Another one of the 'victims' of the previous prep-to-pros kids.

I hope current teens learn the lessons from guys like him. Just making the league does not make you successful.

If you can't adjust to life in the NBA as a teenager...and then to life after the NBA, life is only made harder.

All of this may have been avoided if someone addressed his attitude issues earlier in life. It’s also the most likely reason he played a journeyman role. Never being able to hold down a job within an organization or hold importance to a community. That’s why he ended up playing for eight different teams in his ten year career.

Over the course of his career, Telfair never once posted a positive Box Plus/Minus on the offensive or defensive end. Truth be told, that’s a statistic far more indicative of his attitude than it his talent, and serves as a grim reminder of what could have been if Telfair had his head on straight from the day the Portland Trail Blazers drafted him.
Portland Fansided



I pray he gets his life together in prison.

Damn. That might be his career.

He's approaching Greg Oden, Andrew Bynum status with multiple severe injuries in a very short period.


I hope he's saved his dough and prepared for the next phase of life.


Spoiler:
Man...I've never been a huge DMC fan. I actually think he's a bully. But I am sorry to hear that yet another major injury has likely de-railed his career.

Bagley is expected to be the better player with the higher upside. However, J Collins will continue to be overlook, unless he has success in the playoffs.

Sad yo hear this new for Boogie. However, the positive is that the Lakers have loss depth.

Thoughts on Dwight Howard possibly joining the LA Lakers?

Dwight is on the list with Melo. Melo was worth 15 losses being a your team. Dwight's worth 8 since as a center, their negative value is not so awful. But with the Lakers in a role where he is just a situational big for specific matchups like Jokic, Whiteside, Adams or Capela, he is not so bad. That's a 15 mpg and only plays in certain matchups type. Those guys generally at worse have replacement level value which is reasonable.

It's when Dwight is a starter or a player that you depend on for a nightly basis, you know your season is going to be some ****.

Dwight still has temp value as a drop big who can post defend, protect the rim and rebound at a high rate. That has value in certain matchups which is worth the min for some teams depending on their style of play.
