The Delonte West saga continues in Cleveland.
The former Seattle Supersonic was absent from the Cavaliers’ first practice of the season today, after an offseason filled with turmoil. His absence was unexcused.
West — who way back when we dubbed one of the weirdest-looking athletes in existence — was recently arrested for carrying half the cheat code set of Grand Theft Auto in his car.
After being pulled over for a moving violation in Maryland, police discovered two handguns and a shotgun, all fully loaded, hidden in a guitar case in West’s vehicle. No word on whether brass knuckles, a baseball bat, a chainsaw, a sniper rifle, or money from hookers could be secured.
Frankly, if you’d ever seen Delonte West up close or simply heard him speak, you might not be all too surprised to find out he’s an amateur gangster. Not to be judgmental or anything.
