Delonte West out on the streets
« on: February 25, 2016, 06:27:38 am »
Apparently, his family isn't stepping in to help this kid. This is disgraceful, given the fact that Delonte took care of his family after he hit it big in the NBA...houses, money and lavish gifts. Shame on his family. It's time for the NBA to step in and do the right thing and get him some help.

Sad.  :'(

I saw this and wondered why his family hasn't helped.  it goes to show that as long as he had money they were riding his jock now that the money is gone; so are they.

Why is this the NBA's problem? 

Should I expect my former employers to step in and take care of me if anything happens? Is there a statue of limitations on this obligigation.

Dude was paid a lot money and I am guessing didn't heed a lot of the advice or help me was given.

Why did this article let the NBA Players Association off the hook? Pretty sure West paid a lot of dues. Where's their assistance, post-career?

Obama is too busy to attend today's funeral. No surprise here. Pressing matters are at hand, like sorting through liberal options to be Scalia's replacement. The body is still warm. Despicable.
Turd - I have never really bought into the genius that is Turd.  I know he is well loved and considered a great poster.  His brand of humor just doesn't do it for me.

Or his agent of you want to blame people.

I would focus on people he gave money to instead of those that gave him money.
