Unless you’re a diehard NBA fan the name Robert Swift probably doesn’t ring a bell. He was selected 12th overall in 2004 out of high school in California and spent just four seasons in the league, playing for the Seattle SuperSonics and Oklahoma City Thunder, with career averages of 4.3 points and 3.9 rebounds.
Since then Swift bounced around between the NBA Development League, North American Basketball League, and a league in Japan.
Unfortunately, Swift’s professional basketball career was never able to gain traction and he returned to Washington to live in the home he lived in while with the Sonics. The home was foreclosed upon last year and the 27-year old had been living in it since. When Swift did leave, this is what was left behind.
I can’t imagine purchasing a house only to find what the Dalzell’s did inside. This serves as a reminder that for every NBA success story there is atleast one that ends on the opposite end of the spectrum.
