All jokes aside, Delonte West is probably off his meds. The former NBA star, who has battled mental health issues in the past, was spotted in Houston, Texas—barefoot. 

Reports TMZ:

It’s actually a sad story … the person who shot the photo is a huge basketball fan and said they noticed the former 1st round draft pick wandering around outside of a Jack in the Box around 10 PM all by himself with no shoes.

When the fan approached him and asked, “Are you Delonte West?” — he replied, “I used to be but I’m not about that life anymore.”

We tried contacting West to find out if he’s okay — and even reached out to his old agent — but we couldn’t get in touch with him.

The last we heard from Delonte West, a reportedly suspect Instagram account credited to him was throwing shots at LeBron James at the top of the year.

Delonte West was diagnosed with bipolar disorder during his stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers but it’s his “self destructive behavior” that ushered the 31-year-old out of the NBA.

Pray for that man.
