Despite making $14 million in the NBA, Boston Celtics Delonte West has applied for a job at Home Depot during the NBA lockout. West broke the news to his Twitter followers saying, ” It’s official.. Pride 2 the side.. just filled out a application at Home Depot.. Lockout aint a game.”
Unlike most players, who are taking their talents to Europe during the league’s hiatus over labor disputes, West is not able to leave the country after he was put on probation on gun charges.
It seems Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett takes the LA Lakers-Celtics rival a little too seriously… during Sunday’s match-up at the Lakers’ Staples Center, Garnett turned down a ball boy when asked for an autograph saying, “You’ve got a better chance of catching bin Laden.”
Garnett’s remarks were reported via Twitter by ESPN’s J.A Andande and Yahoo! Sports Marc Spears but were later deleted because of the mass amount of people retweeting the posts.
The Lakers lost to the Celtics, 109-96. As for the ball boy, he should’ve tried asking Matt Damon for an autograph, who was in the stands watching.
Shaquille O’Neal was on last night’s Late Show with David Letterman. While wearing a hoodie sports coat, the 20-year veteran gave the dirt on his biggest rivals in the league. When Letterman asked Shaq about Pat Riley, the former Miami Heat player would not comment and sipped his water. Shaq spent three years in Miami playing under Pat Riley. As for his former teammate and rival Kober Braynt, Shaq played nice saying, “Fabulous player. Probably the best player in the league right now.”
