Delonte West’s College Coach Reacts To Disturbing Videos Of Ex-NBA Guard


Delonte West has fallen on hard times.

A pair of troubling videos featuring West circulated Monday. One showed the 36-year-old fighting in the middle of the street with another man. The other saw a handcuffed West incoherently speaking with law enforcement on the side of the road.

Former NBA guard Jameer Nelson, West’s college teammate at Saint Joseph’s, like so many others within the basketball world was saddened by the videos. Nelson took to Twitter to share an important message on the matter which was quote-tweeted by their college coach, Phil Martelli, who suggested help is on the way for West.

The Boston Celtics selected West with the 24th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. West went on to make stops in Seattle, Cleveland and Dallas over the course of his nine-year NBA career, which concluded after his 2011-12 campaign with the Mavericks.
