Celtics Delonte West throwing punches

Doesn't surprise me since it is Delonte.

Celtics Delonte West, Von Wafer engage in fight at practice

Quote:
Celtics guards Delonte West and Von Wafer traded punches after today's shootardound, Hoopsworld.com reports. It is the second time in a week the two have confronted each other.

Sources tell the website that Boston is considering waiving West, whose contract is not guaranteed.

Today’s fight started after what Hoopsworld called "an intense three-on-three game during practice." West followed Wafer into the locker room and threw the first punch. Wafer connected with a pair of punches before the players were separated, according to Hoopsworld.

Wafer may have confirmed the incident with a tweet that said: "Today was a test!...I am a professional and will continue to conduct myself as one...God has a plan for me"

On Sunday, West and Wafer got heated at each other during practice.

Boston plays the Knicks tonight at home.

Well, at least West hasn't slept with Ray Allen's mom yet.

I wouldn't be so quick to pin this all on West. Wafer's also known for having a serious attitude problem.

How do you know? Maybe he's just learned how to keep it more on the down low.

Damn I wished Boston was playing the Knicks tomorrow. Got NY Knicks tickets to the Portland game (tomorrow) though.

Would've loved to see Boston in NY. Sucks they are playing today.

That team does have a good load of crazies. Nate has really surprised me there, but I wouldn't be certain that lasts either.

Default Hoopsworld: West, Wafer Exchange Blows in Practice

Quote:
Less than one week after tempers flared during a two-on-two game in practice, Delonte West and Von Wafer had another altercation earlier this afternoon.

During a three-on-three game with Avery Bradley, Luke Harangody, Semih Erden and assistant coach Tyronn Lue, West began fouling Wafer each time the reserve guard touched the ball. West was increasingly physical to the point that Wafer exited to the locker room midway through the game. As he walked away, West barked obscenities and taunted Wafer.

After Wafer had showered and sat down at his locker, West approached from behind and threw a punch. Wafer didn't see the punch coming but quickly got off of the ground and connected on two punches of his own. He then wrestled West to the ground before being separated by the team's veterans.

Sources close to the situation say that the Danny Ainge and the Celtics have grown tired of West's confrontations with teammates and are considering releasing the point guard

Unfortunate because West is diagnosed as bipolar, but enough is enough. Guy is making millions of dollars and fails to restrain himself.

So many good personalities would be dieing to be in his shoes and are probably near a equivalent level talent wise although not experienced enough.

Drop him.

The Celtics would prefer that teammates harness that competitive energy in a more productive fashion, but coach Doc Rivers isn't afraid to let tempers flare. More often than not, cooler heads prevail and the team is better because of it.

"What I love about Doc is that he doesn't mind us being competitive, as long as we don't go off on our own and become a tropical storm," Garnett said during training camp last month. "He lets us be who we are, and it does get testy and very competitive in here. He lets us go as long as we're getting something done and working toward our goals."
Quote:
Nothing to see here. Move along.

"At some point, it becomes comedy," Allen said. "I'm sure the guys will talk about it and laugh about who did what and how it happened. … I've seen a lot of fights; you'd be amazed. … It doesn't change the dynamic of the team. Sometimes you fight with a guy and the next day you're like, 'Dude, my bad. I caught you with an elbow. I was just angry.' That's the thing, as teammates and as athletes, that we're being trained to do. You face tough situations, some adversity, and you have to figure out a way to overcome it."

And sometimes those athletes simply move on.

Delonte West is a special case. Guy just brings trouble. Negative views about him in Cleveland... he's been arrested on gun charges... and now this altercation. History appears to suggest that he has some issues.

Well he has bipolar to begin with.

Yea I wrote that earlier. Still inexcusable for someone making millions. Guy has been a nuisance everywhere he goes. More than one scuffle.

Oh shit, sorry didn't see that.

Yeah, looks like he still hasn't grown up despite the money he makes.

Money doesn't make people grow up. It just energizes and illuminates whatever issues were always there.

Delonte needs better meds
