08:06 AM ET 02.29 | For some, the start of the regular season helped their financial picture, but not Delonte West. Conservative estimates indicate that West has made more than $14 million in his NBA career. But he sold jewelry, cars and even slept in the Mavericks' dressing room at the starting of the season to extend his paycheck. ... [West said] he had trouble getting an apartment because of his criminal record. The Mavericks could get him a hotel room during training camp. But once the season started, he was left to fend for himself because it would have been considered an extra contract benefit. West told the Dallas paper that he either lived in the team locker room or his car.

14 million doesn't go as far in today's economy.

I could live off of 14 million for 5 years..... it's about being financially smart.... The two things that drained his pockets up above: Cars and jewelry....

Gloria was in Dallas on Valentine's day to take care of the finger. But I don't know about this Lebron dude. First he won't go find his father... now he can't find his stepfather a place to stay when he's in need... what a useless stepson!

He couldn't get a place to stay not because he can't afford it but due to the fact that no one will rent to someone with a criminal record.

I don't think hotels check your police record. I'm sure he had other alternatives besides his car if he had money.
