I would say I am surprised by these comments by Delonte West, but I would be lying. The minds of he and Lamar Odom are probably a scary place to enter.
Like the movie Inception when they went into Limbo.
From Jeff Caplan’s recap of a day at the Dallas Zoo for completely mundane teammates Delonte West and Lamar Odom:
“Well, I think they noticed as soon as I came into the zoo my natural animal instinct, you know what I mean?” Delonte said, speaking of the actual animals. “I got a chance to eat with the lions, you know? They had Lamar playing with the penguins, but they needed me for the more animalistic-type of things, carnivore-type of things. So, I also had a chance to give birth to a baby cheetah today and I’m just overwhelmed with the experience to be amongst my own and my peers.”
I wouldn’t bet on the Mavericks being back to back champions.
