Delonte West Facts

  1. He had revealed in an interview that he had had a troubled childhood and had fallen into a trap of drug abuse during his teenage years.
  2. In 2008, he had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Although he had initially accepted the diagnosis, he had later suggested that his condition was due to a combination of temporary depression and the stress caused by his lifestyle.
  3. He had led the Eleanor Roosevelt High School to their first-ever state tournament appearance, the Maryland 4A Championship. That year, he had been named the ‘Washington Post All-Met Basketball Player of the Year’.
  4. During his junior year at Saint Joseph’s University, he had averaged 18.9 points and 6.7 assists per game, helping his team to an astonishing 27–0 win-loss record in the regular season and an ‘Elite Eight’ appearance in the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) tournament. They had eventually finished the season with a 30-2 win-loss record. He had opted to forego his senior year of college basketball eligibility and had declared himself available for the 2004 NBA Draft where he was picked 24th overall in the first round by the Boston Celtics.
  5. He has often had to deal with financial troubles. During the 2011 NBA lockout, he had applied for a job at Home Depot and had even worked at a local furniture store.
  6. In June 2016, a picture of him panhandling in Maryland had gone viral stoking speculation that he had become homeless. Delonte had denied the rumors explaining that although the picture was genuine, it had been taken out of context. It was he who was helping a homeless man who was quadriplegic.
