The Celtics are gathering information on the situation, but sources told Hoopsworld that they are considering releasing West based on this and other incidents with teammates.


There's no way Byron Scott wouldn't have kicked his ass personally if he was still a Cav, is there?

I get the feeling that we might be witnessing the end of Delonte's career. Slowly but surely. He just doesn't seem to be able to function properly in a team environment anymore.

Lots of stuff happened here with Delonte that still hasn't reached the light of day, and I'm not talking about boinking Gloria James on the trainer's table.

Windy has hinted at it numerous times, and Shaq said something to that effect. Shaq said he was the only one Delonte respected in the Cavs locker room last year.

Delonte just has serious issues with mood swings, depression and anger management. And quite possibly self-control. Seems like it's getting worse, not better.

At the very least, he might have to take a year off from basketball. At worst, his career might be done at age 27. Right now, he's virtually unemployable.

I can see the movie, "A beautiful Redz"

/seriously thou...this illness usually gets worse with time. Until they find the right meds balanced with stress. Certainly, playing in the NBA would qualify as stress.

I thought this was about the DeLoria break up.

World Wide Wes wasn't afraid to voice his opinion. Guess since DWest can't help WWW make some coin well...

william_wesley Just a reminder of the quality locker room Dan Gilbert put together in Cleveland. http://cot.ag/bGaq51

**edit - may not be THE WWW, waiting for account to be confirmed

A couple reports say Wafer is as much to blame as Redz is. Wafer has a chip on his shoulder being player #15 and practice scuffles between the 2 fueled the frustration since Wafer becomes expendable once Redz serves his suspension.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

With one fist flying at Wafer, and Gloria's hand on his crank, there's still a better chance that he gets the Cavs into their offense faster than Sessions or Boobie.
