1. West Takes Flight

This 37-year-old clearly has some more left in the tank. Contemplating retirement after last year’s championship victory, David West was expected to leave the Golden State Warriors. That didn’t happen, and it’s fair to assume that some fans read the news over the summer and were a bit perplexed to see him sign back on for another season.

And if we assume in that this may be his last season, it’s become more and more clear that West has really made an effort to carve up a solid role in the rotation. He seems much more comfortable this year, and it’s shown in his ability to pass the ball and knock down the frequent elbow jumper.

What he hasn’t shown very much this season is his bounce, which many thought had already diminished. He proved everyone wrong, throwing down a couple of memorable jams.

Although it may suck for NBC Bay Area’s broken camera, West showed that he can still throw it down when given the opportunity. His camera-breaking tomahawk is definitely interesting, but it’s really the poster above that caught everyone’s eye.
