Delonte West has a new nickname: Butterscotch

Honestly, I don’t even know how to react to this latest video from Delonte West. Like, not only is Butterscotch wearing some sort of leopard fur Snuggie he calls Cootie Cat, but he’s doling out singles for loosies. Is that what the Celtics will be looking for in their backup point guard? I have no idea. It’s not like the C’s haven’t employed smokers before (cough, Tommy Heinsohn, cough, Dino Radja, cough). Anyhow, at least we got one of Delonte’s greatest quotes of all-time out of this deal: “You come from the sewer baby. You a Ninja Turtle. I’m out.” Genius.
For reference, here’s comedian Kevin Hart‘s NSFW video as alter ego Chocolate Drop to which West refers. Not that any frame of reference can help interpret Delonte’s Butterscotch alias.
And then there’s his new website that greets you with this from Delonte, sandwiched by some evil laughter: “Greetings and welcome to the future. You’ve finally caught up to me. Well, at least you think you have. This world is not what it seems. My name is Two Step, a virtual rep of the infamous. I’ll be your guide as I transport you into the world of the one and only. Please enter at your own risk.”
Simultaneously, West announces his inaugural Celebrity Charity Weekend in his hometown of Washington, D.C. from Sept. 21-25 — promoting what else but health, wellness, athletics and mentorship. He said, “The Delonte West Charity Weekend is about renewing dreams, serving the underserved and making a difference for a community that made the dreams of so many athletes and celebrities possible.”
Like with the whole Home Depot thing, I kind of getting the feeling Delonte is just toying with us and I kind of don’t. Either way, you’ve gotta love him. For more goodness, check out these tracks from his “Lockout” mixtape: “It’s Bout 2 Go Down” and “Mr. Magnificent,” “Livin’ Life Fast” and “M.J. Shwagg.” You a Ninja Turtle. I’m out.
