Delonte West "MJ Schwagg" Freestyle

The lock out continues......and Delonte keeps releasing music. This freestyle is about Delonte's love of Air Jordan sneakers.

He's far too entertaining to not.

Our friends over at have just released new statistical information about which sneaker brands sponsor NBA Players.
