A former NBA star that suffers from a severe mental disorder was found by a fan roaming around a Houston fast food parking lot shoeless, with a hospital gown on over his flannel shirt.

Delonte West, who once made a whopping $16 million playing for Boston, Seattle, Cleveland and Dallas, was spotted in a Jack In The Box parking lot without any shoes on his feet.
When the fan asked the eight year NBA vet, who was a first round draft pick in 2004 ,“Are you Delonte West?”, the 32 year old former pro b-baller with bipolar disorder replied,

“I used to be, but I’m not about that life anymore.”

West has always had a history of controversy off the court, with run-ins with the law and the infamous affair between him and former teammate Lebron James‘ mother.

The former St Joe’s guard was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2008 after a preseason Cavaliers game and soon after separating from his first wife.

He flipped on a referee in that game and said he realized he needed a break.
