Former Portland Trailblazer player Sebastian Telfair will have a few years to think about what he did after he received a 3-year sentence for driving around Brooklyn with a loaded gun. Firearms and marijuana were recovered by police from Telfair's vehicle during a traffic stop.

"This defendant exercised his right to a jury trial and was found guilty of possessing an illegal firearm", Gonzalez wrote. "I'm 34. I can go play in China for another six years, take care of my family".

The hometown hero originally from Brooklyn made his National Basketball Association dreams come true in 2004 when the Portland Trailblazers selected him with their 13th overall pick in the first round of that year's National Basketball Association draft. During his pro career, he spent one year with the Boston Celtics before being included in Boston's 2007 trade for Kevin Garnett.

That was a far cry from the hullabaloo Telfair generated in his teenage years, including appearing on the cover of Slam magazine in 2002 with fellow high school star LeBron James. After searching Telfair's truck, authorities retrieved "a loaded.45 caliber gun in the console".

$500K in property stolen from A-Rod's vehicle

Telfair was sentenced to three and a half years in prison on Monday after being convicted in April.

Retired NBA point guard Sebastian Telfair, 34, started shouting and crying once the verdict was announced. "It was a bad move all around".

On Monday, he complained in court that he was being penalized too harshly for a "victimless crime". "You've achieved greatness in your life, and this case doesn't take that away".
