New photos of 37-year-old former NBA baller Delonte West begging for change on the street have surfaced prompting calls for those once close to him to step in and get him some help.
The NBA, Doc Rivers, Jameer Nelson, and the Players Association want you to know that they’ve all been trying to get Delonte West help since the first batch of alarming photos went public earlier this year.
Multiple sources tell us that the league, NBPA, and Delonte’s former coach, Doc Rivers, and former St. Joe’s college teammate, Jameer Nelson, and others have attempted to get DW much needed assistance.
FYI, West was the 24th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. He played 8 NBA seasons for the SuperSonics, Mavs, Cavs and Celtics … where he played for Rivers.
West’s struggles have been well-documented … and this isn’t the first time photo or video has surfaced that has caused serious concern about West’s well-being.
Back in 2016, a fan spotted Delonte outside a Jack In The Box … and asked him if he was the former NBA star.
West responded … “I’m not about that life anymore.”
Most recently in January 2020, Delonte was captured on video involved in a street fight.
The bottom line is there are people who are desperate to help Delonte … but he’s gotta be willing to accept it.
Sad. We hope someone’s able to get through to him before it’s too late.
