Solid, steady West not worrying about his All-Star status
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- If David West doesn't get an All-Star nod despite the myriad ways he's helped the Hornets win far more games than anyone expected, he can deal with that.
New Orleans coach Monty Williams might not take it as well.
"He's one of the top power forwards in the game (but) people don't recognize him as such,'' Williams said, seemingly annoyed by attention lavished on emerging stars like the Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and Minnesota's Kevin Love.
"Everybody's talking about Griffin and Love for the All-Star game and they've got losing records, and (West is) dropping numbers on people every night without even getting a sniff,'' Williams said. If "you're not winning games, you shouldn't get a chance to play in the All-Star game. David has proven he is an All-Star and he's putting up the same kind of numbers and yet nobody's talking about him.''
