How does it feel to be an NBA champion? David West: It feels great. I’m sorry. It feels great. It feels better than I thought it would, honestly. I thought I was going to be happy, but I feel, man, I can’t, I can’t … We just won, dog. We just won. We set this lofty a– goal out front. K.D. hit me up in the summer: ‘Yo, West, man. Come grind one with your boy.’ ‘I’m with you K, straight up,’ I told him. ‘I got your back, we’re out here and we’re going to do it.’
What do you think about people who have ridiculed you for taking a smaller salary than was offered to stay with the Indiana Pacers in hopes of winning a title with the San Antonio Spurs and Warriors? David West: That s— don’t matter. You put material wealth or material riches over things that will change you as a human being. And at the end of the day, we’re human beings. Everyone is caught up in this material world and the things and the things and the things. The Egyptians couldn’t take those things with them. You can’t take it with you. So, you need moments that later in life that no amount of money will overvalue it. Taking that money in Indiana wouldn’t feel like this. I’m just telling you. It wouldn’t. It’s not even close. With my background from where I’m coming from, I tell people all the time about my story. Nobody really knows it fully, but it’s the truth, man.

Everybody was supposed to be better than David West. Fourteen years, man.
