Rumor: Delonte West working at Home Depot during lockout?
It's official.. Pride 2 the side.. just filled out a application at Home Depot.. Lockout aint a game..
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: There's nothing wrong with working at the Home Depot, however, there's something wrong with Delonte West having to work at the big box reno' shop because of the lockout.
West is an active NBA player, and has earned $15 million plying his trade as a combo guard for the Boston Celtics, Seattle Super Sonics (now the Oklahoma City Thunder), and Cleveland Cavaliers.
Yet, West is (supposedly) broke because owners have shut the door on the players. So he's applying for a gig at The Dep'.
If true, this is unexcusable. West should have set money aside for the labour strife, which everyone could see on the horizon.
Somebody should be looking after West's interests. Like his agent. Or the Players' Union. Remember, West has his issues.
Speaking of the union, West's situation isn't good for negotiations. If other players are living cheque-to-cheque, they may have to settle sooner than they'd like.
There's nothing wrong with working at Home Depot -unless you're West and the Players' Union, and are in the middle of a lockout!
