A Quick Conversation With Delonte West About Thanksgiving
With the Cavs in New York on Tuesday night, I caught up with Delonte and had a quick conversation with him about what Thanksgiving means to him. Here's what he had to say. Enjoy.
Randy Kim: So what are you thankful for this year?
Delonte West: I'm thankful to have peace of mind right now. I'm thankful for family. I'm thankful that I'm able to do what I enjoy and pursue my passion for a living.
RK: So what are your Thanksgiving plans?
DW: I got a few of my family members coming up, and we'll do a traditional turkey and gravy and, you know ... Macaroni and cheese! (Does a small dance)
RK: So how much family do you have coming up?
DW: Just a few of my immediate family. Not too much, just my dad and my step-mom; brother, sister.
RK: What's your favorite dish?
DW: Got to go with the sweet potatoes. I can't wait to finish dinner so I can get some sweet potato pie.
RK: Light meat or dark meat?
DW: Dark. Oh, yeah.
RK: If you could have Thanksgiving dinner with any four people, living or dead, who would they be?
DW: Man, wow ... Uh, Jesus. Biggie Smalls. Tupac. And, um ... Curtis Mayfield.
RK: What about any four women?
DW: My mama, my sister, my step mama, and my sister-in-law.
RK: You're not going to bring a date?
DW: I don't have any hot dates, man. I haven't had too much luck with the ladies lately.
RK: Really? Come on ...
DW: I'm serious, man.
RK: Alright, well have a happy Thanksgiving.
DW: You too.
