Sebastian Telfair was supposed to be where LeBron James is still at right now. They both graced a magazine cover together as the two biggest things in basketball before they even got into the NBA.
LeBron is still doing his thing with the Lakers in 2019, but Telfair is headed to prison.
In a Manhattan courtroom, the former NBA point guard was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison for gun possession. When the verdict was read, Telfair lost his mind.
“Please don’t take me from society right now,’’ begged the former Lincoln HS star. “I am 34. I can go play in China for six years and take care of my family. I’m waiting for my daughter right now to get her period. Real mental illness because I wasn’t around … She hasn’t even gotten her period yet.”
‘Put a gun in his hand and fight for us n—- … I go to the gun store. I got an American Express,’ he added.
Telfair was driving a Ford F-150 with a friend on June 11, 2017 when police said they pulled over the duo because their truck’s headlights weren’t on. Telfair said he had a Florida concealed carry license for the weapons, but he did not have a license to carry the guns in New York.
“Sebastian Telfair is going to jail for a … victimless crime.”
