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.'”
