Delonte West, we hardly knew ya. But it wasn't without excitement. West gave us the odd White House scenario in which he either was or wasn't banned from joining the team on its championship visit to President Obama. He provided some wild Twitter rants, the warrior walk off the floor with the bone sticking out of his right ring finger that he held high for the crowd to cheer, and then, of course, the "West willy" finger poke in Utah. All-in-all, West, who signed a one-year deal for veteran's minimum with the Mavs in December, played just 48 total games because of the gruesome finger injury that sidelined him for six weeks. In 44 regular-season games playing both guard positions, West, 28, averaged 9.6 points and 3.2 assists in 24.1 minutes a game. He started 33 games at shooting guard. His productivity drooped in a relatively quiet showing in the four-game sweep to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
If Delonte West is gone, it was time too short
