With the lockout in full effect, and missed paychecks looming, has Delonte West taken on a new job at a furniture store?

There is some pretty heavy rhetoric flying around both camps involved in the NBA's lockout, with the players' side desperate to save face and the owners determined to tighten the screws. According to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, NBA commissioner David Stern is ready to delay the start of the season should the players resist his attempts at securing a new owner-friendly collective bargaining agreement this weekend.

Boston Celtics guard Delonte West, pictured above with another player who wasn't at Wednesday's lockout negotiating session, is ready to lug around his own set of heavy things. Furniture-type things. Complete with tightened screws; or at the very least an included Allen Wrench.

West's tongue might be planted firmly in his cheek as he goofs around the subject of a second job, but he was kind enough to post pictures of both his furniture store application on Twitter, and a supposed picture of him in the van on his first day at the new gig. You can see both after the jump:

("Misunderstanding." That is hilarious, even though his conviction was pretty scary.)
