It's actually a sad story ... the person who shot the photo is a huge
basketball fan and said they noticed the former 1st round draft pick
wandering around outside of a Jack in the Box around 10 PM all by
himself with no shoes.
When the fan approached him and asked, "Are you Delonte West?" -- he
replied, "I used to be but I'm not about that life anymore."
We tried contacting West to find out if he's okay -- and even reached
out to his old agent -- but we couldn't get in touch with him.
