What are the consequences for Delonte West?

The News-Herald follows up on the Delonte West shotgun-in-a-guitar-case story.

Timberwolves guard Sebastian Telfair was suspended for three games for having a loaded gun in his possession.

Don’t be shocked if West is not eligible to play for several games this season. Could his possible suspension be as long as 10 games? Are you glad the Cavs signed Anthony Parker now?

He’s not a bad guy. He’s not a Pacman Jones. He’s a guy who has issues.

Ironically, West was within his rights to carry the shotgun. It’s the two handguns that have him in trouble.

I agree that West is not a bad guy. He’s odd, but likable, and he’s a key player for the Cavs. He’ll likely serve a suspension, and may serve some time.

ESPN adds that West left the Cavaliers’ training camp last summer to seek help for a mood disorder that dates back to childhood. At that point he was in therapy and on medication.

West has always been quirky, but driving around (on a motorcycle, no less) carrying loaded weapons across state lines is troublesome.

West recently blitzed the blogosphere with his freestyle rap while waiting for his order in the parking lot of a KFC. (Video after the jump.)
