West: love him, hate him? Regardless though, big names tend to come with big egos...I still think West is a really nice addition to our front office. Here's some excerpts for Tim's post: "It’s incredible how many (or ALL?) the seminal figures in NBA history that West has competed with, competed furiously against, acquired or advised, from Chamberlain to Red Auerbach to Pat Riley to Magic Johnson to Michael Jordan to David Stern to Kobe Bryant and everyone else. There are compelling anecdotes and stories about of these guys in this book, by the way. * And I wonder if Joe Lacob and Peter Guber, who just brought West into the Warriors’ front office, understand the volcanic ups and downs that come with West–it sure will make things more interesting, and better, and more volcanic in there, that’s for sure."
