Warriors’ David West pursuing first championship ring

Warriors’ David West pursuing first championship ring Kevin Durant isn’t the only player to join the Warriors in pursuit of that elusive championship ring. The 13-year veteran has been here before, having gone to the playoffs with the then-New Orleans Hornets, the Pacers and the Spurs. In a move that was widely mocked, West rejected a $12 million contract with Indiana and signed with San Antonio for the veteran-minimum $1.49 million, not the greatest return for his sweat equity. “This is a free-market system, so you can make business decisions based on your ability to be...

Damian Jones excited to be back with Golden State

After the Santa Cruz Warriors’ season ended Monday night in the Development League’s Western Conference semifinals, Damian Jones received a text from Golden State director of player programs Jonnie West: “Opportunity is there.” At 21 with a game still raw by NBA standards, Jones won’t be much of a factor in the Warriors’ championship pursuit. Golden State’s only center signed beyond this season, Jones’ time banging against the likes of Zaza Pachulia, David West and JaVale McGee in practice will only help him should he get a shot at the rotation next season. The player...

Explain One Play: David West’s pick and pop mastery

Explain One Play: David West’s pick and pop mastery

David West does it all off the pick and pop play in the Warriors-Grizzlies game on Mar 26, 2017. David West has settled into a helpful role for the Warriors. He comes off the bench and plays tough physical defense like Andrew Bogut did on big bruisers like Zach Randolph. (Did you realize that ESPN RPM, flawed as it is, rates West as the #7 defensive player in the NBA, and #2 power forward behind Draymond Green?) And like Bogut did, West can get the ball up high and pass well to cutters. Unlike Bogut, he can shoot the midrange jumper like Marreese Speights. This combination of skills...

Warriors’ David West emerging as elite passer

Often during long flights, Draymond Green sits next to David West on the Warriors’ team charter and asks what the big man has in store for him. West touches upon everything from current events to politics to renewable energy to African-American history during those conversations. In his 14th NBA season, the 36-year-old backup center is showcasing an elite passing ability seldom seen during previous stops in New Orleans, Indiana and San Antonio. With a rare blend of size, court awareness, touch and timing, the 6-foot-9, 250-pound West posts up on the right block and draws defenses toward...
