Larry Bird and the Pacers don't look so great in this David West interview: deadsp.in/xuChaGK
David West thought it was a low-class move by the Indiana Pacers organization to, in his words, “throw Roy under the bus.”
“That’s one thing where I wish they would have handled better was the situation with Roy,” West said. “I’ll be honest with you, that bothered me a little bit, and I told Roy that. I’m the type of guy who feels like we’re all in this fight together and I’m not designed in that way to put it all on one guy. That did rub me the wrong way. That threw me off. I started reading some of that stuff, I started thinking, ‘Whoaa.’ I just didn’t feel good about that. I told Roy that it bothered me, that he’s still my teammate.
“Anybody else got any stupid questions??” [said Larry Bird said, who] then pointed to the Indianapolis Star’s Candace Buckner, who last week broke the news that West was opting out. “C’mon, Candace, I know you’ve got some (dumb questions) in you.”
