Chris Paul Understands David West Becoming a Free Agent

David West’s good buddy and current teammate CP3 holds no ill will towards the forward for testing the free agent waters. From the Times-Picayune: “New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul, one of the team’s co-captains with long-time teammate David West, affirmed his affection for West and said he ‘respects’ West’s decision to opt out of the final year of his contract. ‘D. West is like a brother to me,’ Paul said in a text message, ‘and I respect the fact that he made a decision that he believes in the best interests of himself and his family.’”

    @ Max, I would say around the 12 win New Jersey level real talk. Chris Paul was everything to them, they couldn’t really function w/o him and don’t even have a darren collison to fall back on. Plus, d. west was their leading scorer and a former all-star.
