Life for NBA player Delonte West has been rough for the past couple months since he joined the Dallas Mavericks due to numerous court hearings and financial issues.
It got so low for Delonte that when he first joined the Mavericks, he didn't have a place to stay and essentially was sleeping in either the Mavericks locker room or his truck:
He said he tried to rent apartments around North Texas but failed, because they were either too expensive or he wasn't allowed because of his legal troubles.Okay, I know that most of you probably entered this post looking for information about Delonte's alleged sexual affair with Lebron James mother Gloria and below is his statement stating that it never happened:
So West would get a hotel room when the Mavericks were on the road, but when they came back to Dallas late after road trips, he had no place to stay. So rather than getting a hotel room for just a few hours, he would sleep in the American Airlines Center locker room area or park his truck in the arena players garage and rest.
West told the Morning News his outrageous living situation didn't last long after his boss found out about it. "Soon as Mr. Cuban heard about that, he made one phone call and everybody was lining up to rent me an apartment," West laughed. "They were calling back saying, 'Hey, we've got the penthouse suite for you.'"
West also wants to finally end vicious rumors that he had a sexual relationship with Cavs teammate LeBron James' mom, Gloria during the 2010 postseason. "It's affected me," West told the Morning News. "Everywhere I go, first question, 'Don't tell me you did that.'
"If we want to continue to grow as a human race, what are we teaching our kids if we try to make humor and fun out of stuff like that?” West said of the rumor. "Number one, something like that never happened. I don’t know where they got that from. For a strong black woman like that, for people to try to tear her down, that’s terrible. That’s terrible in so many ways."(Courtesy of The Post Game)
