Two former members of the Saint Joseph’s basketball program issued concerned statements Monday night after a video surfaced on social media of what appears to be Delonte West, a former St. Joe's and NBA player, rambling and sitting on the side of the street while in handcuffs.

Phil Martelli, who coached West for three seasons at Saint Joseph’s, said on Twitter the video is “very painful” and that he is seeking to get West help. He quote-tweeted a Twitter post from Jameer Nelson, who was teammates with West from 2001-04 in college.

  Canadiens' Jesperi Kotkaniemi shows some pugilistic skills For a 19-year-old who had never been in a fight before in his life — on or off the ice — Jesperi Kotkaniemi handled himself very well. The Canadiens centre took exception to linemate Ryan Poehling being checked from behind into the boards by Robert Hagg during the third period of Thursday night’s 4-1 win over the Flyers in Philadelphia. Kotkaniemi went after the 24-year-old Hagg, dropped his gloves and lay a beating on him, throwing some right-hand bombs that would have made former Canadien Chris “Knuckles” Nilan proud. Nilan actually tweeted out a video of the fight afterward and wrote: “Well done Jesperi Ko-tkaniemi”.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former teammates , coaches and others are expressing concern for ex-NBA and Cleveland Cavaliers star Delonte West after two videos were released on social media that reportedly show West involved in a violent confrontation on the street, then rambling afterward while

I went to school with him and it’s crazy to see just how his life has gone

The video shows what appears to be a shirtless West with his hands behind his back on a sidewalk being asked by a person off camera about an altercation. The person asked West: “Why did you hit him? Did he attack you first in self-defense or did you hit him?"

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

The former NBA player said he was walking down the street when he was approached by a man with a gun. West then went on an incomprehensible rant.

West was part of the Saint Joseph's team — along with Martelli and Nelson — that reached back-to-back NCAA tournaments in 2003 and 2004. The 2003-04 team went undefeated in the regular season and lost to Oklahoma State in the Elite 8.

He played for four teams in the NBA from 2004-12 after being the 24th overall pick by the Boston Celtics. He teamed up with LeBron James in Cleveland from 2007-2010 before James left to join the Miami Heat.
