Delonte West Finds Job at Furniture Store (Pictures)

Delonte West wasn’t going to wait until the lockout ends to start working again.

The free agent point guard tweeted on Wednesday that he was applying for a job at DMV-based Regency Furniture Showrooms.

“Applied at Regency Furniture, need a 2nd job to stay afloat during the lockout,” West tweeted.

West tweeted a picture of his application and replied ‘Misunderstanding’ when asked if he had been convicted of a crime referring to the incident in 2009 where he was arrested for possessing three loaded guns. West also tweeted pictures of him with his new coworkers.

“Another on the job pic. This is the last one, don’t wanna get fired,” West tweeted. “Regency is a cool place to be. Now I’m chillin. It’s almost 5.”

West, who went to Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, Maryland, is a familiar face at the store.

“Sometimes he just stops by to say hi,” King said to the Washington Post. “He can make some extra money, and it would make money for us.”

Anybody else does this and it would most likely be perceived as a publicity stunt. But with West, you just never know.

Who wouldn’t respect a working man who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty and doesn’t feel this job is below him.
