Uh Oh, Delonte West Isn’t Doing So Hot Right Now
There are a lot of reasons why playing a sport for millions of dollars is a good thing. Like, for example, getting to PLAY A FREAKIN' SPORT FOR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. But the flipside is that you wind up with champagne tastes and few translatable skills to help you afford them once your playing time is over. It would appear that former NBA point guard Delonte West -- who made roughly $14 million between 2004 and 2012 -- is finding life after basketball particularly hard, as this photo recently popped up on TMZ.
Apparently he was wandering around a Jack In The Box parking lot in Houston, Texas, Sunday night.
Delonte West was recently spotted wandering around in Houston with no shoes...

The anecdote that makes this image even sadder: West wasn't wearing any shoes -- which is probably related to that hospital gown he's wearing under his vest. Now might be a good time for a certain former teammate of his to squash their beef and help him out before things get any worse.
