If there’s one player I never see anyone talk about, it’s David West. He’s a good player. If he were worse, people would talk about him because he sucks or his team is good despite him. If he was a little bit better people would talk about him because of how good he is. He’s not flashy. At all. You like fundamentals? You might say you do. But when it comes down to it, you want your power forward to be a high-flying, shot-blocking athletic freak.
David West is not those things. He has the fundamentals. He shoots mid-range jumpers. Not many threes. Those would be too exciting. He sometimes mixes it up in the post. He rebounds a bit. He passes a bit. He plays defense. Yawn.
We need to harness the power of social media to get the word out about how good David West is. Someone start a Facebook group. And we def need some hashtags. Does he have a page on Yelp? Someone make one. And don’t forget about Digg. Never forget about Digg.
