Caleb Swanigan has now been forced to speak out after viral pictures and photos were shown of him looking much different than he did just last season while he was in the NBA.
Earlier this week, the former Portland Trail Blazers player appeared in court pleading guilty for a misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge and was given a 180-day suspended sentence with two days time served as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. He will avoid any jail time.
It has been 434 days since Swanigan played in an NBA game, a home contest against the Phoenix Suns where he had five rebounds and an assist in eleven minutes at the Moda Center.
On his Instagram, Caleb fired back at the media and anybody else who have something to say about his appearance.
“When the media in ur life, ignore them.”
“I’m a full time father figure with trust funds for off springs.”
When u right, they hate u, I promise. All imma say is Dave Chapelle I’m happy.”
The 26th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft averaged 3.0 points and 4.7 rebounds in 13.3 minutes per game in 20 games for them.
