Delonte West's Happy Valentine's Day

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

We know we like to make fun of Page 2 around here, but we have to say, the whole enterprise is justified by their "interview" with Celtics guard Delonte West about what he likes in his ladies and what his ideal date would be. We know this sounds corny — and it is — but we're so blown away by the whole story ... oh, you just have to see it.

Some highlights:

• "I would tell her, she would have to wear white. She must have on a white dress, because I'm going to have on white. I'd have told her in the note, she has to wear her hair a certain way, just the way I like it."
• "From there, I'd have the music pumping on the radio. The Jim Jones pumping, you know, 'Summer in Miami' song pumping. Got to keep a little gangsta, you can't be too soft. You can't be in there playing some guy that's crying, talking about don't leave me and love me baby, wah wah and all that. "
• "We ain't popping no Kris, that's $500 a bottle. It ain't that serious. It ain't going to get you drunk. Make sure you put that in there. We ain't doing a $500 bottle, we're doing a $99 wine and dine."


We're not gonna swipe from the whole story, because you really have to read this on your own. But we would like to formally salute Page 2, the Boston Celtics, St. Joseph's University, the District of Columbia, Adam West, and anyone else in the West family, for making this moment happen, and possible.
