Former NBA Player Sebastian Telfair Sentenced to Prison For Gun Possession, Goes on Rant in Court


Telfair is a former NBA player who was sentenced to three and a half years in prison for gun possession.


According to The Post , police found "three loaded handguns, a submachine gun, ammo, extended magazines" and a ballistic vest during a vehicle search.


Speaking with the newspaper prior to Monday's sentencing, Telfair said the guns were all his, and all legal.


Telfair was once considered a rising star in basketball, and he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2004 with the headline, "Watch Me Now."


Telfair was a point guard who played in the NBA from 2004, when he was 19, until he stepped away from the game after the 2014-15 season.


He played for eight teams in the league—Portland, Boston, Minnesota, Toronto, the Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix, Cleveland and Oklahoma City.
