0423_tony_delk_eric_williams_roman_getty_tmzEric Williams is not the monster he was made out to be on "Basketball Wives" ... and DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE HOMELESS ... so says one of Eric's former NBA teammates. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Tony Delk -- who played with Eric on the Celtics -- and he tells us Tami Roman was WRONG when she said Eric's current situation is karma because "God don't like ugly."

Of course, Roman made the comment because she felt Eric terrorized his ex-wife Jennifer Williams on the VH1 reality show ... and the fact his life has since fallen apart is his just desserts. 

But Delk tells TMZ Sports ... the Eric he knew is a "great guy with a good heart" ... adding, "He's as generous a guy as I've ever met."

"He was always smiling and happy about life."

Delk -- who admits he doesn't watch "BBW" -- says Eric's less-than-desirable behavior on the show isn't the real Eric ... claiming the show brings out the worst in people. 

As for Jennifer, Tony says she should be grateful for everything Eric gave her during their relationship -- offering this message to the reality star: "Don’t forget where you were when he found you."

He spent more money than I could hope to earn in three lifetimes. He blew his money on stupid stuff and deserves the consequences.

SMTTTTTTTTTTTT, Yes that's good for him. Regardless of what he "disrespected" his "wife". Some people feel like they can do wrong to people and don't expect it to come back. Karma comes back in many ways. Ive never seen a man who treated their spouse wrong didn't get his karma back through health and being lonely at the end.
