West appeared to be holding a cardboard sign, but it was unclear what was written on it.

The 38-year-old, from Washington, DC, has been in the spotlight for the past few years as fans have worried about his well-being since leaving the league after the 2011-12 season.

West was reportedly in an altercation in DC in January 2020 and accused a man of shooting him, prompting fans and former players to “figure out” how to help the former NBA player.

Dallas Mavericks team owner Mark Cuban also helped West get into a rehab facility in Florida in 2021.
