Ballertainment Robert Swift refuses to leave foreclosed, sold home Former NBA big man, Robert Swift, has given the middle finger to his competition. The only problem is, he’s the one that lost. Swift’s Seattle, Washington home was foreclosed in 2012 and a new owner picked it up in January for almost half the price Swift paid. Since that time, Swift has refused to leave the property. Watch the story as reported by local Seattle news station, KOMO… Swift seems to have fallen on hard times — emotionally and financially. Whatever the case, I hope this gets resolved in an amicable way for both parties. When the Sheriff’s come knockin’ at the door, it might not be pretty. Robert Swift was selected as the first pick of the Seattle SuperSonics (now the OKC Thunder) in the 2004 NBA Draft. He last played professionally in Japan for the Toyko Apache. I’ll be keeping an eye open for future developments…. SOURCE Ballertain a friend... Ballertainment - Sports Entertainment, Gossip, Lifes...
