Current NBA Player was Homeless

Jeremy Lins sleeping on his brothers sofa doesnt sound nearly as bad after hearing about one veteran players housing nightmare.Delonte West is quite possibly the first active NBA player to be without a home during a season. The Mavericks guard tells the Dallas Morning News that after arriving in the Lone Star State he couldnt find a place to stay, so he spent nights sleeping in the Mavs locker room and even in his car.Let us explain.West suffers from bipolar disorder, which causes extreme mood swings. In 2009, he was pulled over near his Maryland home on a three-wheeled Cam-Am Spyder motorcycle, and police found a 9mm Beretta pistol, .357 Magnum and a Remington 870 in a guitar case. West pleaded guilty to weapons and traffic charges, but was able to avoid jail; instead he got electronic monitoring and supervised probation and counseling.
