    I feel for him but seriously some people don't make a fraction of that there whole lives and they still learn to manage. I understand investments can go wrong but common.

    Good job by Mr. Cuban. Even Jeremy Lin had his brother's couch to sleep on, ha. :p That's unfortunate for him though.

    Thats sad, i feel bad for him but again don't at the same time. How are you going to blow 14 mill and have nothing? Like what did he blow it on? You'd think 14 mill of drugs would kill a man... somebody needs to teach him how to save cuz he's gonna be *****ed once he retires.

    That's a lot of money to throw away in only a few years. Can't say I feel sorry for him, but I hope he, and others, really learn to manage their wealth.

    I thought the NBA gives all rookies a class on how to manage $$$ and how to avoid gold diggers after being drafted. Maybe some players need to hire someone to manage their money.

    his own damn fault. Had to work at a furniture store? Talk about paycheck to paycheck. Homeless? Hardly.. he stayed in the locker room or in his car for a night or two.. I'm sure the locker rooms Cuban provides are pretty high tech and spared no expense. Props to Cuban for making some calls to help out Delonte but fail for Delontes money management skills.

    In other news, Gloria James has accumulated $14 million in savings, which did not come from LeBron.

    If you knew what he did to his former teammate, would you want him around your family?:p

    Really??? Would you want Delonte West staying over at your house?



    And how the **** did Delonte waste 14 million dollars?

    If their moms, other female relatives, wives, or gfs sleep in the house, they might be concerned about late night creeping. LeBron probably got the whole Mavericks team blacklisting West for overnight stays.

    if you read the rest of the article,
    it mentions he suffered from bi-polar disorder which contributed to his down fall.
