Former NBA Player Delonte West Spotted Panhandling
Former NBA player Delonte West is currently trending on social media after fans spotted him panhandling.
The video has since been making rounds online and prayers are up for the ex NBA guard who now seems to be begging for money on the streets.
Delonte played in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for the Boston Celtics, Seattle SuperSonics, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Dallas Mavericks. He also played professionally for the Fujian Xunxing and Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association and the Texas Legends of the NBA G League.
The last time Dreddsworld reported on Delonte West was last year when he was arrested for an alleged drunken incident with cops. An incident report states that cops stopped West after he was yelling and banging on the glass doors at a police station in Boynton Beach.
Officers claimed West was yelling and cursing while holding open bottles of beer and vodka.
After being ordered to stop and comply, West reportedly got up and put his hands inside his pants; causing one of the cops on the scene to unholster their taser, the news site reports.
West has struggled with substance abuse in the past. He entered into a rehab facility in 2020 with the help of Maverick’s owner Mark Cuban.
