When Delonte West tweeted about submitting an application to Home Depot, I decided not to post the “news.” Without confirmation otherwise, I figured West’s tweet was a prank. After all, West is the same person who rapped about KFC and called himself The Golden Panther throughout one entire interview.

Earlier this week, West tweeted that he was applying for a job at Home Depot, and the seven-year vet says that’s not the only retail job he’s looking into.
“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.”
He would get a microphone at Sam’s, but Home Depot might offer more perks.
“You gotta get with it, do something that you love,” West said. “I’m an architect, I was an art major. At Home Depot, I get free discount on hammers and nails.”
Maybe it’s time for the NBA lockout to end.
