FILE - In this May 15, 2014, file photo, Indiana Pacers forward David West reacts to the team's 93-80 victory over the Washington Wizards in Game 6 of an Eastern Conference semifinal NBA basketball playoff series in Washingtons. David West desperately wants his first NBA championship. Manu Ginobili couldn't resist going for his fifth. Both proud veterans likely will have to take some pretty big pay cuts to do it. They hope joining together in San Antonio with a Spurs team that has been uncharacteristically busy and aggressive on the free agent market will make it all worthwhile. West chose to leave some $11 million on the table to join the Spurs, while Ginobili shrugged off an injury-plagued season for one more run in San Antonio. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)
