Marshall -- who's been very vocal about overcoming his own mental health issues -- was at LAX when we asked about West's seemingly dire situation ... Check out the clip -- Brandon says he definitely thinks Delonte needs a helping hand ...
and that the NBA could -- and should -- do their part to reach out to guys having tough times.
Here's former NBA player Delonte West -- looking worse for wear out in Houston earlier this week. the person who shot the photo is a huge basketball fan and said they noticed the former 1st round draft pick wandering around outside of a Jack in the Box around 10 PM all by himself with no shoes.
When the fan approached him and asked, "Are you Delonte West?
After his first five seasons in the NBA, Delonte West was the kind of player who basketball obsessives knew and loved, a fan favorite who hadn’t drawn much mainstream attention. West explained to the officer that he was carrying weapons: a 9 mm Beretta, a Ruger .357 magnum, a Remington 870 shotgun, shotgun shells, and a bowie knife.
Around 10 p.m., not far from his home in Prince George’s County, Maryland, he was pulled over on his three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder motorcycle for making an unsafe lane change.
’ I don’t want him to deal with all that man.” The wording here is bizarre to say the least.
But now the clinical label offered, or seemed to offer, an explanation for an outlandish story.
A month after the motorcycle incident, they were divorced. But despite these ups and downs, West played well, and the Cavs went into the playoffs with the NBA’s best record.
Then Cleveland’s (and the world’s) best player, Le Bron James, played less than his best against Boston, and the Cavs lost the Eastern Conference semifinals in six games.
Delonte West was photographed Sunday wearing ragtag attire and carrying a cardboard sign on the side of the road in Prince George’s County, Md., but the mentally ill NBA cautionary figure says it’s not what it looked like to concerned commenters on social media.
“I was helping a homeless man in my neighborhood that’s paralyzed from neck down,” West said in a statement to Media Take Out.
