Why I'm not bitter about not getting David West..

Nice article about David West's role in the Pacers' early success:

Like most Celtics and Celtic fans, I would have loved to have David West in green to help us win banner18. He would have been a nice complement to KG and another proven veteran player who can fit in well in our system.. But unlike Ray Allen, I'm not angry or bitter at him for choosing the Pacers over the Celtics because like the article said, they needed him more. He's like the glue that binds that team together. He's the veteran presence they need to lead all those young but talented players and bring them to the next level. The uncertainty about the Celtics' future beyond this year, and not the extra money was what made him make the decision. And now, from a borderline playoff team, they are now turning into serious playoff contenders and might even challenge the Bulls for the Central division title. And on the bright side, players like Brandon Bass and Greg Stiemsma are given their chance to shine. So I'm happy for David West and also for Larry Bird's Pacers.. I just hope we don't meet them early in the playoffs because they're gonna be so dangerous!

Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
