Delonte West's Application to Work at Furniture Store is Priceless


1 comment


It's hard out there for a locked-out NBA player. Bills to pay, mouths to feed, no money in the bank, and no money coming in. Take Delonte West, for example. The former Cavalier tweeted when the lockout began that he might need to find a job at Home Depot to make ends meet. He wasn't kidding.

It wasn't the big-box home store that got West's services, but Regency Furniture. Yes, Delonte West got a job in the stock room of a furniture store in D.C. His application, which he tweeted out, is below.

Have you ever been convicted of a crime? "Yes."

If yes, please describe in full. "Misunderstanding."

When can you start? "Yesterday."

Never change Delonte, never change.
