Sep. 30, 2020 – When images of Delonte West emerged online showing the former NBA star begging for money, the basketball community instantly rallied behind him.
Fans, TV personalities and big-name players all urged the NBA to step in an help the struggling 37-year-old who had clearly fallen on hard times.
West, who enjoyed an eight-year career in the NBA, has clearly fallen on hard times recently after various footage emerged of him begging on the streets and even being beaten up. It’s understood West made upwards of $16 million during his time with the Boston Celtics, Seattle SuperSonics, Cleveland Cavaliers and most recently the Mavericks. But West’s fall from grace meant he was forced to turn to the streets. Now, though, it appears he has checked in to a rehab clinic under the guidance of Dallas’ owner Cuban.
