West, the former St. Joe’s standout, was recently spotted on a Dallas highway, asking for money. Cuban, whom West played for with the Mavericks, was able to track him down at a gas station and get him into a rehab facility.
So far, so good, it would seem. This is the second rehab update, and the first came on October 9th, so he’s been in this program for almost a month now. It was a significant win to get him off the streets and into a facility, since people had tried and failed in the past. West suffers from bi-polar disorder and had rejected help previously, but perhaps this is a turning point to get him back on his feet.
