“Apparently Delonte West was seen getting beat up in the street this Morning. I went to school with him and it’s crazy to see just how his life has gone downhill since the NBA.”

According to reports, multiple parties including NBA Players Association, Clippers coach Doc Rivers, and former NBA baller Jameer Nelson have tried to contact him for months in hopes to help get him on the right track.
