David West retires from the NBA
David West announced earlier on Thursday his retirement from the NBA after 15 seasons. A former first-round draft pick by the Hornets, West quickly started to make his mark with eight straight seasons of 17 plus points per game and seven-plus rebounds. West played for the Hornets, Pacers, Spurs, and finally the Warriors in which he won two NBA Championships. West was one of the more durable stretch four's in the game playing at least 66 games in all but two seasons early on.
West was a solid fantasy option back in his prime with the Pacers and Hornets as he could stretch the floor, post up, and was solid from the foul line. West is certainly a fringe Hall of Famer in my opinion.
