As He Continues To Struggle With His Mental Health A fan posted a video to YouTube featuring former basketball player Delonte West and the former Dallas Mavs player says he sometimes forgets that he played basketball. Delonte expressed his gratitude after Cuban contacted him and referred him to a therapy facility to help with his mental health. Last month Delonte was spotted in Virginia panhandling for money. West reassured fans he was “fine” after some became concerned with him sinking back into old habits. “It is what it is. I got children. I’m in between jobs. People can help me as much as they can, but you know, as a man I gotta do what I gotta do for my babies,” said West.
