    D. West

    Now that DFW has another NBA Championship ring and a history of greatness (2-time NBA All-Star, College POY, 3-time All-American, A-10 POY, etc., etc., etc.), will he decide to return to XU, filling out the vacant slot as Assistant Coach on Travis Steele's excellent Staff? What 4- or 5-star big man would not want to take advantage of all the class, skill, and knowledge that West has to offer to those looking to work the paint in the NBA?

    I think DWest has some more mileage in the league.

    I think he's done. No idea what he'll do next, but I suspect he'll retire as an NBA player now.

    My understanding is that DWest will not be joining the XU coaching staff.

    Um no. Only if he wants to start at the bottom and be a graduate student-assistant.
    James Posey went to the CAVS and he has had similar or better NBA championship performances. He stayed with the pros.

    I bet West sticks with the pros like Posey. He has never recruited a high school player ever in his life so maybe he could start at the bottom but he is in his mid 30's and may want to make high 5 or low 6 figure income as an intelligent assistant for the pros.

    Yeah I see that as the more likely route, and then maybe after a few years as an assistant POSSIBLY come back to X, but I just don't see him wanting to do the grad student route at this stage. He got himself two rings though, which he fully deserved. Who knows if he wants to chase one more with Golden State? He did allude to a lot of drama that went on behind the scenes with that team.

    I'm sure DFW had to put his foot up Draymond's worthless ass regularly.

    Yeah, David West looked kind of done when he was on the floor. Love him, but he might be done.

    You aren't kidding, I have no idea how anybody can put up with that insufferable douche.
