Found January 30, 2012 on NBA 24/7 365:

Delonte West is a character.  He’s been known to make rap videos outside of fast food chains, play basketball with a sock, and live by the g-code.  It seems that absolutely everything he does is hilarious, and I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wondered how such a unique individual prepares himself mentally for a game of NBA basketball.  Thanks to Youtube and the Dallas Mavericks I don’t have to wonder anymore.  With a little help from Brendan Haywood, here’s the one and only Delonte West getting in the zone…

I’ve got two questions, and two questions only: First of all, why isn’t someone paid to follow Delonte around with a video camera 24 hours a day?  Secondly, can we get a 2 Chainz/Delonte collaboration?  Maybe give Stephen Jackson a feature as well.  Recruit Lou Williams, bring AI out of musical retirement… f@ck, man, forget the whole 2 Chainz idea (no disrespect to Mr. Tity Boi), I want an NBA posse cut!  Man, would that be epic or what?  It would have to be kept under the radar, though.  David Stern wouldn’t be having that sh!t.

I lied… I have a third question: why hasn’t Red Bull given Delonte an endorsement deal?  Notice the can in his left hand.  Those commercials would be gold.
