Mark Cuban Is Helping Delonte West Try to Turn His Life Around

Mark Cuban gets a lot of flak on Outkick, particularly over NBA ratings, so it is only fair to point out that it is genuinely cool and worthy of praise to see him help Delonte West try to turn his life around.

West is most known for his time on the Celtics and Cavaliers, but he also spent his last season in the NBA, 2011-12, playing for Mark Cuban’s Mavs.

West has been seen around the streets of Dallas in recent weeks, carrying a sign. TMZ reported on Wednesday that Cuban sought to meet with West, and ultimately connected with him and brought him to a hotel while West’s family strategized about what to do next. West’s family has reportedly been trying to convince him to go to rehab for a couple years.

Today, Shams Charania added:

Good for Cuban, and hopefully this is the first step in a turnaround for Delonte West.

  1. That’s fine helping another human being that doesn’t change the fact he is a phony leftie all in with the chicoms and btw has not helped those two deputies who were almost assassinated one a young mother with a small child so lets keep it real .

  2. A self made billionaire who didn’t just inherit daddy’s money… Man what a loser…… He made it on his own…

    Even a non-political article gets the trumpettes’ triggered. This is a sports website.
