How does David West stack up against Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and some of basketball’s all-time greats? Time will tell. But Sports Illustrated at least lumps him into the same publication as the others.
West is featured in Sports Illustrated: The Basketball Book, a compilation of more than 300 photographs and stories about the sport of basketball. West is in the college basketball section under the NCAA All-Decade Team for the decade beginning in 2000. He’s joined by Connecticut’s Emeka Okafor and three Duke players, Jason Williams, J.J. Redick and Shane Battier.
