What Will Cavs Do With Delonte West?

by September 21, 2009

The media, team, and its fans have looked the other way with past incidents. They may not be able to this time around: “It likely will come out in time just what West’s state of mind was as he traveled down the highway with the guns. His father told The Washington Post, ‘all I can say is Delonte was looking behind his back and protecting himself’ and hinted he was concerned for his safety for some reason. No matter what, it isn’t going to be as simple as West did something wrong and then he’ll be punished. There are gray areas and decisions the Cavs may have to make about how to deal with West. How they can continue to try to help him, how to understand him. Or perhaps even where they should draw the line.”
