maybe he thought of himself as some movie star, or better yet - filming some badass action movie? Police should have checked other vehicles, maybe cameras were rolling and shooting..

This would have been a 82 game suspension if it was a Nuggets player (Melo getting 15 games for the NY punch while everyone else gets 1 game if they punch someone), but Delonte is gonna get 7 or something.

delonte west needs to be in washington. he needs to be near his family in the home he grew up in. he needs to be close to his high school friends and cohorts. he needs a safe place.

maybe they can outpatient him at johns hopkins, he can get some electro shock therapy and be at the verizon center by noon for team practice followed by individual workouts during the season. georgetown is like 5 minutes from the verizon center, they have some of the best neurological and mental health specialists in the country.

face it cavs fans, he is damaged goods. you might as well wash your hands of him and go all in with boobie. cut your losses. might as well send delonte to washington where he can be nurtured and cared for. maybe one day he will be able to recuperate and be a viable member of society.

we welcome west with open arms in washington. west for a second round pick sounds about right. it is the best scenario for all parties involved.

Got this off a lawfirm website in Maryland:

"Gun charges are taken extremely seriously since Maryland firearms laws are very strict. Carrying a handgun is a crime that will get you mandatory jail time if you are found guilty.

Carrying a handgun in Maryland without a permit to carry is punishable by a minimum of 30 days in jail, and up to 3 years. (See my MD Handgun possession penalties chart below.) Even if you have a permit in another state, it is not considered valid in Maryland. "

Handgun Charge
Penalty

Handgun—Unlawful wearing, carrying, 1st weapon offense
Maximum—3 years; Minimum—30 days


Handgun—Unlawful wearing, carrying, 2nd weapon offense
Maximum—10 years; Minimum—1 year


Handgun—Unlawful wearing, carrying, more than 2 weapon offenses
Maximum—10 years; Minimum—3 years


Source: http://www.maryland-defense-lawyer.com/MdGunLaws.htm

Delonte possessed 2 hand guns and 1 shotgun.

If he's lucky, they count it as a single offense and he would fall in the first category.

Considering each handgun counts as a separate weapon count, independently of one another, he's going to fall in the second category for the 2 handguns and not counting the shot gun.

If they do count the shotgun, he falls in the third category.

West for Dominic McGuire.

That's a fair trade.

Let's say I want to kill myself, what would be the best way to do it ? I don't have any guns and I don't want to jump in front of a train (not fun for those that have to clean up afterwards). Any suggestions ?

Kobe is protected just like any of the top Superstars in the NBA.

He has been charged with two counts of gun possession and several traffic citations, although those charges could be amended, Copeland said. According to Maryland criminal law, having an unlicensed handgun can carry a fine of $2,500 and/or up to three years in prison.

"We are aware of the situation and take this matter very seriously," Cavs general manager Danny Ferry said in a statement. "We have been in communication with Delonte and his family. We are gathering more information and will not have further comment until the appropriate time."

West's agents did not immediately return a message to The Plain Dealer.

West has said he suffers from bipolar disorder and has been open with his battle with mood swings and depression. Last season he left the Cavs for several weeks during training camp to get treatment for depression and was on medication at the time.

Copeland said West cooperated with police and did not require or receive any medical attention. He has been released on his own recognizance and has a court date set for Nov. 26.

It was not yet clear if West would be cleared to travel to Cleveland when the Cavs open training camp on Sept. 28

As someone who lives in the area I feel it is only fair that I point out the area that West was reported arrested in has an extremely popular gun range not too far away. It is entirely possible that West was coming from Maryland Small Arms, hopped on 95, and got hemmed up.

you know, maybe. if west will be serving some time, i would like to see how dominic improves over that time, but i think that is not that bad of a trade.

we all know delonte is good. but he has issues. dominic has been squeaky clean and a nice rotation player, he is just behind two great forwards.

bring delonte back to dc!!!!!!!!
