Shouldn’t he be in a mental institution?  It seems that’s where he belongs.  I know little about how that works.

I feel bad for him.  I always liked him as a player.  I liked him on the Celtics.  I also liked him when he was on Cleveland because he always played so hard.  I remember when he entered the league and was so happy to be there and clearly appreciated his circumstance and opportunity.  He was a very easy guy to root for.

Mark Cuban is personally helping Delonte West get back on his feet ... with the Dallas Mavericks owner picking up the ex-NBA star at a gas station in Texas.

As we previously reported, the former Cleveland Cavaliers guard has fallen on tough times in recent years ... and was most recently seen holding a sign on the street in Dallas last week.

Sources connected to West's family tell us that Cuban -- who had been trying to reach DW on the phone for days -- finally got in contact with Delonte ... who agreed to meet the Mavs owner on Monday in Dallas.

We're told Cuban took West to a local hotel ... while his family formulates a game plan.

Our sources tell us West's circle of fam and friends have been trying desperately to get Delonte to go to rehab ... and he now seems open to the idea.

We're even told Cuban has offered to help cover Delonte's cost for treatment.

Nice job, Mark Cuban.

I really like Delonte and I hope he gets the help he needs. Mark Cuban is doing a great thing (he seems to be a genuine good guy).

What bothers me about this is that a lot of people claimed to try to help delonte  n January and it amounted to nothing clearly since no one made a serious effort to contact him. Heck, he’s been homeless since 2016!


How do you go from multimillionaire to holding a cardboard sign for food?



I get that he has mental issues but I feel that people used him and took it from him. That or he spent it all like Antoine walker and Allen Iverson. Iverson once said he’s survived because early in his career he apparently put some money into a bond that couldn’t be cashed out until another 30 years pass. So that’s paying him a Substantial  enough annul coupon rate or something That he can use to live off 


The nbpa should fight for a pension or something to make sure this never happens again. It’s a really bad look for the league too

just kidding but I’d bet he’d score more than Carsen lol


Apparently ainge hired Delonte as a college scout a few times after DelonTe retire, but had “mixed results” because Delonte wouldn’t attend Some games


Also found out mark cuban has helped delonte  before. When west was a player for the mavs, it was the lockout season and he would sleep in the locker room and his car in the players garage apparently. Mark Cuban found out and got him a place to stay somehow https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2012/2/28/2831763/delonte-west-mavericks-locker-room-homeless-season
