Troubling Delonte West Homeless Video Goes Viral
A troubling Delonte West homeless video went viral on Monday night.
West, a former eight-year NBA veteran, appeared in a series of clips shared online recently that depicted him in a very troublesome state.
In these videos, West can be seen getting beaten up on the street near the 210 highway that connects Maryland to Washington D.C.
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. pic.twitter.com/chm6Sbu9h6

Onlookers recorded West getting attacked as they drove past him.
In a separate clip, West can be seen sitting on the curb seemingly after getting stomped.
Clearly disturbed and ranting, the former NBA player says he was attacked by someone with a gun.

Although many assume that West is homeless based on the videos, that has not yet been confirmed.
The 36-year-old has been out of the NBA since 2012. He played in the D-League in 2013 and 2015, as well as China between that.
West reportedly has bipolar disorder, but it is unclear if he has been receiving any sort of treatment for the condition.
Over the course of his NBA career West played for the Boston Celtics, Seattle Sonics, Cleveland Cavaliers and Dallas Mavericks.
Prior to being drafted by the Celtics in 2004, he played college ball at Saint Joseph’s University from 2001 to 2004.
