Dallas owner Mark Cuban tried to get Delonte West on the right path. The attempt was not successful.

Leaving professional sports sometimes completely ruins people. Former Boston, Cleveland and Dallas player Delonte West has changed beyond recognition. We previously told how the point guard was begging on the streets of Dallas, but now the situation is much worse. What is happening in the life of LeBron James’ former teammate, with whom he reached the Eastern Conference final in the 2009 playoffs?

It was reported 10 days ago that Delonte had been arrested in Fairfax, Virginia. He was served with an arrest warrant for violating conditions of release and charged with resisting arrest. It appears that Delonte was supposed to be under arrest, but one of the people filmed him in a parking lot unable to stand up.

The video can be seen on the TMZSports YouTube channel.

And before there were rumors that the former NBA player used drugs, but after such a video everything fell into place. Additionally, the police report states that when Delonte was captured after resisting arrest, he received medical attention. West was injected with Narcan, a drug used to treat drug overdoses. It’s terrible how the life of not a great NBA basketball player, but a pretty decent role player, became so dark.

A lot of people tried to help Delonte: the NBA players union, Doc Rivers, LeBron James, Mark Cuban. Some helped verbally, others with money. But when you give, and in return you only see that Delonte does not change, you may give up. The last one who tried to help West was the then main owner of Dallas, Cuban, who picked up the former player of his team at a gas station and convinced him to undergo a rehabilitation course. At first everything went well: Delonte was recovering and tried to play in the BIG3 amateur league, which belongs to the famous rapper Ice Cube.

But then West’s business went downhill again, and now the former NBA player has fallen to his lowest point. He lives on the streets, panhandles, and there was a carjacking incident in Florida. In general, not everyone is lucky enough to stay at a high level in the NBA, although Delonte was not an easy convince. His personality and his team antics cost him a spot in the North American League. Everyone chooses their own path in life: West, 37, chose to wander the streets barefoot, beg and take drugs. Strive for the best, work on yourself, do not let external factors influence you.
