There was news over the past few weeks that former NBA draft pick Robert Swift was being kicked out of his house. The bank had foreclosed but the big fella was squatting, refusing to leave the property. Respect.
The guy was the 12th overall pic in 2004 and his just didn’t want to give up the dream. Stupid big banks ruining the guys fun…typical.
He ended up leaving the premises at an unknown time over the weekend. The place was nothing short of a disaster. Komo News broke the story and here are some of the highlights of what was uncovered:
- Animal feces
- Multiple guns, live ammunition and bullet holes in various areas of the house
- Endless piles of pizza boxes and beer bottles
This was probably the most depressing part:
A box of letters from colleges around the nation sat pushed against a downstairs wall. It looked like another trash box. Crests and logos of UCLA, Arizona, UConn and others are jammed together. He didn’t even open some of the letters.
We give it about 6 months until ESPN announces a 30 For 30 film chronicling the rise and fall of Robert Swift.
