Delonte West was a pretty promising player at one point in his career starting alongside LeBron James averaging double-figures and sort of earning himself cult-favorite status among those that like to cheer for fun people that play basketball. His career went downhill in a hurry however as he went from being a full-time starter with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2009 to being out of the NBA by the time the 2012-13 season rolled around. Most people attributed West’s downfall to his being bipolar but he told the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn that it had more to do with just being self-loathing saying he didn’t think being bipolar was his issue.
