Goodbye Letter To Delonte West

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

To Delonte West:

You may not have been a member of the Dallas Mavericks for long, but the time that you were here you became an instant fan favorite. The attitude you brought to the team was the first time that the Mavs had since that month they had Dennis Rodman.

I remember the day that  it was announced the Mavs signed you. I told myself “What kind of mess will Delonte get into here.” However, you proved me and Mavs Nation wrong. Fans will never forget when you thought it would be funny to put your finger into Gordon Hayward’s ear. Fans will never know what is going into that Delonte head of yours.

Fans will remember the Delonte talk you had and when you tried to recruit Deron Williams or “Dwill” with your language. It was nice “mane man.”

Mavs fans really do appreciate everything you did for the team and everything you did for the city. It could be the distraction of Lamar Odom that the front office did not really notice the distraction you supposedly brought to the team that did not cost you suspensions last year.

Although, the supposed fight that you had with two other Mavericks cost you your time in Dallas since a “timeout” was not enough discipline, the Mavs Nation will always have a special place in their heart for you.

Even though your time in North Texas went by quicker than Big Tex going up in flames, the Mavs Nation wishes you the best in your future and hope to bring success to the next team you play for. If for some reason you are not playing this season on another team then just sit back on your couch and relax. Just watch the Mavs on your big screen and see if they made the right decision in letting you go. Until then, Good luck and good-bye, Delonte.

 

Sincerely,

Mavs Nation

Your Favorites

Dirk Nails Game-Winner, Gets Love From Kobe

Kobe Bryant wasn't able to lace up for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, but he still managed to make the highlight reels on multiple occasions. After Dirk Nowitzki nailed what turned out to be the game-winning jumper, he stumbled backward into Bryant and received a pat of approval. This encounter is the definition of the saying 'game recognizes game' as the two players are both legends and future Hall of Famers.

Josh Smith Fakes Dirk Nowitzki Out of His Shoes

Josh Smith has returned to the Houston Rockets via trade, and he made the most of his first game back. He scored 16 points off the bench, including this drive on Dirk Nowitzki that made Smith look like Hakeem Olajuwon. Could Ty Lawson and Josh Smith be the spark duo off the bench that rejuvenates this Rockets team?

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
