Being in the NBA is a luxury most will never know. To make millions of dollars playing the game of basketball is a dream and very few get to see it actually play out.

For Delonte West, he experienced first-hand what it's like to be at the top of the basketball world -- and made millions while doing it.

Unfortunately for West, the end of his basketball career started a downward spiral into homelessness, drugs, and apparently violence. In a recently captured video of the former NBA baller, he is seen getting beat up in the middle of the street by an unidentified man.

Later, one Twitter user was able to meet up with West in person to get his side of the story.

There are reports that West has been diagnosed with Schizophrenia, among other things, which could be resulting in what we are seeing today.

Whatever the case, let's hope he gets some help and gets off the street.
