Delonte West was selected by the Boston Celtics with the No. 24-overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft coming off of a fantastic college career when he and Jameer Nelson comprised the backcourt for the St. Joseph's Hawks team that went 30-2 in the 2003-04 season and made it to the Elite Eight. However, West is apparently in a bad way nowadays given a recent sighting of the former Celtics guard.

According to a report from TMZ, a big basketball fan recognized West outside of a Jack In the Box fast food restaurant in Houston where the former NBA guard was aimlessly walking around by himself wearing no shoes and, frankly, not looking to be in the best of shape. As evidence, the fan snapped some pictures with West and, indeed, West looks to be quite bad off:

Even worse, though, is the interaction that the fan reportedly had with West. After walking up to him to take the photos, the fan asked, "Are you Delonte West?" Quite harrowingly, West replied, "I used to be, but I'm not about that life anymore."

West hasn't played in the NBA since suiting up for the Dallas Mavericks in the 2011-12 season. After that, he spent seasons bouncing around in the D-League and in China, playing his last game in the D-League in early 2015.

However, West had far from a conventional professional basketball career. Rumors always prominently circulated about West having a relationship with the mother of his teammate in Cleveland, LeBron James. Moreover, West gained viral fame after a video of him freestyle rapping in a car after picking up food from KFC surfaced online.

Though all of this might seem a bit humorous, it's sad to see a player who had such promise coming out of college and showed flashes in the NBA be in this sort of state where he's all alone in bad shape outside of Jack In the Box saying that he's no longer Delonte West anymore. Just another cautionary tale, or so it would seem.
