    There are few posters that never showed in what side they were and now they are trying to lecture people in how good of a fit West is and pretty much tellings us that they were right and how hard they were pushing for West and how much they loved him, the thing is that they were never there when Gamble1 and beast were the only guys fighting the Dwest cause.
    Vnzla, I believe IMF deserves credit as well. I favored Nene for the same reason you voiced: because I thought he was best qualified to start at 4 and back up Hibby at 5. That said, I've long respected West for his game and his intelligence (through his comments), and 2 years at $10M per is great for us. The only drawback, IMO, is that to reach contender status, we'll need to add another quality backup 5 (as well as a closer, or even an upgrade at starting guard). Like you (again), I was disappointed that we didn't reach out to Dalembert for a 1-yr contract. Trading for Kaman or Varejao this season will be costly. As much as I wish we'd do something like that, I prefer moves that add to our core. I think we may wait until the draft to address that need.
