NBA Suspends Delonte West for 10 Games

It’s not shaping up to be one of DWest’s best summers: “Delonte West, who played last season for the Cleveland Cavaliers, has been suspended without pay for ten games for pleading guilty to carrying a concealed weapon and wearing, carrying, and transporting a handgun, in violation of the law of the State of Maryland, the NBA announced today. West is currently a free agent. If he signs a contract to play again in the NBA, West’s suspension will begin with the first game of the NBA regular season for which he is eligible and physically able to play.”

    Cosign Silver… I musta missed the statement/joke (?) about West and Bron’s mom… Can anyone tell me what was actually said??

  • Javy

    I suggest a TV Reality show where NBA players live in the same house with no contact with women/outsiders watch who gets sho****t or ra****ped in the first season. My selections are: Delonte, Artest, Arenas, Critenton, Denver’s starting 5 and Barkley…upsss..I almost forgot about you buddy, Perkins…..NOW THAT’S A GOOD SHOW!

    @BossTerry-it’s a popular assumption that a major part of Lebron leaving Cleveland is about Delonte (allegedly) screwing his mom.

    West could carry the Heat for Lebron in Miami!!

  • ClydeSays

    Seems like a slap on the wrist for a guy caught speeding, off his meds, carrying 3 loaded weapons…
