President Barack Obama is beginning the week by hosting the NBA champion Dallas Mavericks at the White House.

Delonte West, signed by the Mavs prior to this season, will not be able to join the team because of a criminal record that did not pass the White House's background check, the Mavs confirmed Sunday.


In 2009, Delonte West was arrested after being pulled over riding a motorcycle when police found three guns stashed in a guitar case he was carrying.

Obama, who roots regularly for the Chicago Bulls in his adopted home town, will congratulate the Mavericks for winning the 2011 championship title. He also will recognize the team's support for the men and women of the U.S. military forces.

But West, who in 2009 was arrested after being pulled over riding a three-wheel motorcycle, will instead visit his home, which is located near the White House. West is from the D.C. area.

"That's what happens when you make bad decisions in your life," West said over the weekend, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "You can't go to the White House.''

During the 2009 incident, police found three guns stashed in a guitar case he was carrying. He later pleaded guilty to weapons and traffic charges.

Well, yeah. He's admittedly mentally unstable, and he owns lots of guns.

Bad if he's trying to visit the White House, but perhaps enough to qualify him as a spokesperson for one of the other political parties out there, if he's so inclined.

They are keeping him away so that he cannot **** Michelle doggy-style like he did Lebron's mom.

This makes me love Delonte that much more. Personality-wise hes probably my favorite athlete. "I dont care if its trains, planes, or automobiles. Better have my donuts."

Do you know Delonte personally or what? Don't be quick to judge people based on what you read on the internet. Here is Delonte's side of that night he got arrested:
