The Cavs need to have a sit down with delonte. The will be no distraction this year for our championship run. If he is not committed to the team and the organization then we need to send him to get help at a medical facility and move on. if a trade comes for him trade him. if not then dont release him just let him get help. I understand he suffers from depression but u play basketball for a living. Lebron James is your teammate. u are a multi millionare. and you should be set for the rest of your life with no monetary worries. he may have had a troubled childhood but God has blessed him to be where he is now. Get it together Delonte! Seriously!

I live in Akron....we saw Delonte struggle last year prior to the season. I have total confidence in that kid to make it back for our greatest season ever! You are either on the bandwagon or not at this point. It's a game..........not a war. Delonte we luv you. Rally up you sorry fans!

We know about the charge, we don't know the circumstances, but you do realize that he has bi-polar disorder? Hopefully, they will release some info soon.

How about you stop hatin,and calling names,just because i like the best player in the nba,dont mean you have to be all bitter and $hit.Dwayne has impeccable shooting skills,he rebounds like a 6"8 foward instead of a 6"4 guard,and when ever left open,hes kills it from the 3 point line,and not to mention,HE HAS A RING,does Lebron have that Bewitched?NOPE,he sure dont,now shut the hell up

I tried but you blew it. You don't see any of us on Miami Heat/Wade forums ripping them/him apart. I'm giving up on you.

Then you shouldn't be on Topix spreading your hate around. Nobody really cares what you think about all these teams and players anyway. If you can't say something positive, just don't say anything.
