Dave D'Alessandro sat down the other night with David West, the Hornet PF, to talk about his and he New Orleans franchise's future...and whether he'd be interested in coming back north. He grew up in Teaneck and has Brooklyn roots, as well, having spent a lot of Sunday mornings as a kid in a Brooklyn church.
The 30-year-old West is averaging 18.8 and 7.5 this year and will be an unrestricted free agent come July. He knows what he wants, to play "where I’ll have the best opportunity to win" and understands that the Nets are trying to become that team adding, the franchise "obviously, is a lot more interesting than they were." As for the move across the river, West notes his time in the borough, and points out, "Brooklyn's okay."
