I know social media is a powerful tool. If you grew up a Dallas Mavs fan, or even a NBA fan , you know who Delonte West is. Seeing him on the streets/freeways of Dallas is very disheartening. Please help him out @swish41 @dallasmavs @markcuban @NBA @jasonterry31 please retweet pic.twitter.com/C8OzyGOH9Z

He has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder:
Psychiatrists have been diagnosing an illness characterized by depressive periods and manic episodes since the 19th century. It was known for a long time as manic depression. Now it’s called bipolar disorder. Diagnoses of the illness became much more common after 1994, when the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders added Bipolar II and “bipolar disorder not otherwise specified” (BD-NOS) to its long list of classifications. Bipolar II and BD-NOS are less severe than what is now called Bipolar I, and bipolarity is widely considered to exist on a spectrum. Some people experience severe depression and mania that includes hallucinations, while others have much milder symptoms. There are those in the field who believe the illness is now overdiagnosed.
West was diagnosed as bipolar by a D.C.-area specialist. He says that when he saw the doctor, he’d been feeling down, having days when he was sad and tired and didn’t want to get out of bed. But he told the specialist that there were also times when he “might just go out and buy a car. Or go to the mall and spend 25 grand.” West doesn’t think the doctor took into consideration that such behavior might not be unusual for a professional athlete with a big paycheck. He now thinks that he was suffering a temporary bout of depression, not exhibiting symptoms of a chronic disorder
Delonte West has a net worth of 1 Thousand dollars after making over $14 Millon throughout his career:
Delonte West net worth, salary and career earnings: Delonte West is a retired professional basketball who has a net worth of $1 thousand. Tragically, Delonte is one of the worst examples of a professional athlete whose life fell apart. He earned around $14 million in salary alone during his career but years later was seen struggling deeply with drugs and other problems.

Former New York Times Journalist Alex Berenson pointed to his drug use as a factor:
Now he’s psychotic and apparently homeless. Keep in mind West was healthy enough to play point guard in the @NBA for a decade. I’m sure his cannabis use had nothing to do with his decline.https://t.co/6A3eRgzLfW

This is unbelievably tragic. The video is tough to watch but we must watch it. We can no longer sit idly by while our fellow Americans live like this. While our fellow Americans live in abject poverty.
It is also important to note that this is something many homeless people suffer from. This is getting a lot of coverage because West was famous and a professional athlete. However, he isn’t the only homeless person who is living like this. He isn’t the only American who has been left for dead on the side of the street.
We will update this article if any way to help West comes to the forefront.
