A 2for1 Birthday shout out goes to recently crowned NBA Champion David West, who turned 37 yesterday. The Xavier product has been in the league 16 years, with the New Orleans Hornets, Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs, and Golden State Warriors.
2 Thoughts on David West
- While with the Hornets, West was a reliable front-court scoring threat averaging 20 ppg and 8 rpg in consecutive seasons (07-09). West teamed up with a young Chris Paul to form a dynamic duo in the Big Easy.
- In his first season with the Warriors, West played quality backup big minutes, providing toughness, passing, and ability to spot up and spread the floor. While he scoffs at the notion that he is a ring chaser, West joined the Warriors after the acquisition of Durant last summer. After winning his first title, West signed one last contract with the Warriors this off season.
Happy Birthday David West, congrats on winning your first title.
