Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West was arrested on weapons charges September 17 in Maryland’s Prince George County. He had two hand guns in his pocket and a shot-gun in a guitar case strapped to his back.
According to West, he’s battled a “mood disorder” since childhood and his felonious actions occurred due to this disorder, but his actions closely resemble those of the character Antonio Banderas played in the 1995 action-thriller ‘Desperado.’
Is Delonte West bipolar, or does he have aspirations of being a gun wheeling, guitar case carrying outlaw? Sure, I shouldn’t poke fun at him because of his ‘alleged’ condition, but this can’t be a coincidence.
West claims he’s had this problem since childhood. So I figure ‘Desperado’ was released in 1995, when West would have been around 12 years old. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
I’m no doctor, but I think they got this diagnoses wrong. Has anyone checked Delonte’s DVD collection. I suggest all of his ‘Desperado’ memorabilia, the movie, posters (except those of Salma Hayek) and even the sequel ‘Once Upon a Time in Mexico’ be destroyed immediately. Let’s help this man get his life back in order.
