Fans Urge NBA To Help Delonte West As Troubling New Video Surfaces

Fans Urge NBA To Help Delonte West As Troubling New Video Surfaces

In one video, West appears to be in an altercation on a street in Washington, D.C.

In another video circulating social media, someone who appears to be West is getting kicked and punched in the middle of a busy road. It's been speculated that he once received a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, something that West has disputed.

In a pair of disturbing videos that emerged on social media, West is seen being beaten on a traffic-packed highway by a man in a leather jacket.

The second video reveals the victim to be West, who is rambling incoherently toward the camera while seated on the curb with his mangled shirt stretched across his lap. "I went to school with him and it's insane to see just how his life has gone downhill since the National Basketball Association". "I'm going to figure out how I can help him.... he need to be in rehab or something...", the 31-year-old wide receiver, who last played for the New Orleans Saints, posted on Monday.

'I don't give a f***,' West yelled.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that the committee would be convened "in Geneva in the coming days". Merkel said "that is a question for the real cease-fire".


Delonte West's former college teammate Jameer Nelson offers up his thoughts on West's current tragic situation.

West, a D.C. native, was a star guard at St. Joseph's University before the Boston Celtics selected him with the No. 24 pick of the 2004 NBA Draft.

His mental health has been bad since he was a teenager and has only gotten worse over the years.

West played nine seasons in the National Basketball Association, with the Boston Celtics, Seattle, the Cavs and Dallas Maverics. However, West was adamant that he was not homeless and that he was doing fine, Complex reported. "My family are trying to get him the best professional help that's out there, the best that they can afford".
