Did Delonte West apply for a job at Home Depot?

Delonte West

“I was wondering if you have three-quarter inch… hey, aren’t you Delonte West?”

That very conversation could be happening at a Home Depot if the lockout drags on. That’s because on twitter, West tweeted this:

It’s official.. Pride 2 the side.. just filled out a application at Home Depot.. Lockout aint a game..

West can’t go overseas to play due to his legal issues, so he has to make some money here in the states.

Is he really that broke? Maybe, he has other tweets about money issues, but the guy made $1 million last season and $14 million over the course of his career. My guess is he is kidding, but who knows?

This ties back to the lockout — the owners are counting on players hurting for money and pressuring Billy Hunter and the union brass to compromise. The owners can hold out — guys like Lakers owner Jerry Buss and Mavs owner Mark Cuban may not want to miss many games, but the owners have deeper pockets. Some players may crumble.

But there are always jobs at Home Depot.

    Well Ron Artest was going to apply or applied (I forgot which) to Circuit City back in his Bulls days so that he could receive the employee discount. So maybe Delonte wants a discount on some paint or lumber.

    I’m not so sure Delonte’s resume would qualify him for a position with Home Depot. Perhaps rehearsing the line “would you like fries with that?” would be enough to land him employment.

    Then again, maybe he should just ask Bron-Bron for a short term loan.
