Delonte West thinking less Home Depot, more Sam’s Club

Delonte West

We told you last week how Delonte West said he applied for a job at Home Depot to work during the lockout. And because it’s Delonte we weren’t sure if he was kidding or not.

He wasn’t (and he hasn’t heard back yet). But in comments to ESPN, he actually sounded a little more down to earth than most NBA players about making money during the lockout than most NBA players.

And he seemed to have a good sense of humor about it.

“I actually might have work with Sam’s [Club], BJ’s, selling knives,” West said. “That’s pretty cool too. I get a microphone and everything….

“With the lockout going on, guys could be anywhere in the world vacationing, but they’re right here supporting the people,” he said. “The people are going through a lockout just like we are. They make it a lot about us, but the average American is going through a lockout themselves.”

West will be an unrestricted free agent whenever the lockout ends. Just like a lot of other Americans.

    Im not trying to be funny, but I thought West take behavior medicine & was caught with illegal guns on a motorcycle, so I dont think him dealing with knives is the best ideal!!!

      How can you hate on a guy who recognizes his situation, and isn’t embarassed about it. With that being said, the first comment is hilarious. And wasn’t it a vespa? Not a motorbike. HAHAHA
