A seven-foot-two-inch kid came straight out of Bakersfield High School to the NBA to play for the Sonics. He was the first round draft pick, a starter right off the bat, and seemed to have a bright future ahead of him.

But he had a lot of injuries. He went from a boyish, gangly, 18-year-old star to a long-haired, tattoo-covered mess.

Now he's been evicted from his Seattle home after a foreclosure. But he won't leave.
