Delonte West on Fight: ‘It’s Not That Serious’

West faced the media for the first time since his fight with Von Wafer, and tried to downplay the incident. WEEI reports: “It’s not that serious,’ he said. ‘We’ve moved past that. We’re competitive guys. I’m competitive, he’s competitive. As long as it’s for the betterment of the team, there’s nothing wrong with healthy competition and pushing each other to get better. Things went a little too far at the same time we’re ready to move past that. We’re professionals and we’re on to something different … ‘I read the reports and a lot of things were taken out of context,’ West said. ‘Facts were made up that were not true how things played out. Guys get into scuffles or whatever you want to call it. At the end of the day we’re like brothers in here. At the end of the day we’re trying to win. We’re competitive. We’ve got fiery guys in here. You got to move on and get to the next thing.’”

    It wouldn’t be that serious if this were the first/ tenth time you’ve been in trouble, but at this point anything you do is serious. Don’t worry you’ll be overseas with AI or Steph real soon.

    See, it was not that big of a deal. Who doesn’t punch their co-worker and laugh about it together later on? That’s chemistry for you!

    WhAT’s with the Delonte West and Lebron’s mother comments? What am I missing here? Did West sodomize James’ mother or something? Someone school me.
