When Mavericks guard Delonte West goes to the zoo, it’s going to be an interesting day to say the least.
West and Lamar Odom spent Monday afternoon at the Dallas Metroplex zoo with thirty elementary/middle school students who were selected as Dallas Mavericks Academic All-Stars.
Afterwards, West gave an interesting account of his day:
“Well, I think they noticed as soon as I came into the zoo my natural animal instinct, you know what I mean?” Delonte said, speaking of the actual animals. “I got a chance to eat with the lions, you know? They had Lamar playing with the penguins, but they needed me for the more animalistic-type of things, carnivore-type of things. So, I also had a chance to give birth to a baby cheetah today and I’m just overwhelmed with the experience to be amongst my own and my peers.”
