Delonte West was once a great player in the NBA, who played a solid role for the Cleveland Cavaliers. But he has publicly struggled with bipolar disorder for years. Under the light of media some people make fun of his situation, almost like people don’t realize that they are laughing at someone who is struggling. This article I read really has the right perspective that it’s not funny. It sucks that he has lost so much to this disease and hasn’t found proper help yet.
“But for the sake of this player, who has had his most intimate, personal trials strung out in the glaring public light for all to see and judge, for the sake of this man who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder eight years ago and, crucially, for the sake of all those other men and women suffering from disorders like West’s, this incident serves as a necessary, timely reminder that there is nothing funny about mental illness or those who are afflicted by it.”
