David West has been one of the most underrated big men in the league for the last decade or so, causing problems in the West with Chris Paul in New Orleans early in his career, and more recently helping the Indiana Pacers push the Miami Heat to the limit in the Eastern Conference Finals.
He’s great in the locker room, brings a ton of toughness to the court, and very quietly puts up good numbers on a yearly basis. But with his contract up, and his time in the NBA winding down, West doesn’t have a future in Indiana. They had a good run, but Paul George’s injury devastated them, and they just aren’t in a place to contend at the moment. So it makes sense that West would want to embark on a quest to find a new team to finish out his career with.
Reports in the previous days indicated that the team may indeed be the New York Knicks. Which, seemed like a confusing place for a 35 year old West to want to spend his final years. So Bob Kravitz of WHTR got ahold of West to ask him about the Knicks rumors.
Might want to look away now, Knicks fans.

Knicks, you suck! Boom. Roasted.
