"I got the freedom just to pick a place to go play ball and leaving there wasn't tough," West said. "Obviously, it was just something I wanted to do. It was sort of one of those things on my bucket list. I always wanted to play for the Spurs, see what the inside of the organization felt like. Really last year was the only opportunity I had in my career to do it. Took a shot at it. I felt like coming up here to play, experience this environment. It has all worked out."
"I was just trying to make the right play, tried to get in the flow of the game. Hard to do playing just 15 minutes," he said after his foray into the playoffs. "It was tough tonight. Like I said, I was just trying to make the right play and play my game. I played slow tonight. I couldn't go full speed."
