David West Quotes:

"I don't want to take away from this group, I want to add to it and build it up"

"I've always walked around with a chip on my shoulder in terms of how I've wanted to carry myself... not necessarily out here to play for people's respect, but I want people to recognize what I am and what I can bring and what I add as a ball player."
