Indiana Pacers forward David West isn't making much out of his former employer visiting Bankers Life Fieldhouse tonight.

For starters, the New Orleans Hornets hardly resemble the franchise for which West was a two-time All-Star.

Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, West made the decision to depart -- the ninth-year pro saw an opportunity to play with an up-and-coming team as opposed to sticking around for a rebuilding project.
