Jerry West is one of the greatest minds in NBA history. Every team he’s been a part of has seen success. He’s largely credited for helping put the showtime Lakers together, forming the Kobe-Shaq duo, and has been a very important advisor to the Warriors when finding talent. It’s no coincidence that Golden State formed the team they did with West around.
Now, West is off for a new challenge. He’s heading back to Los Angeles but not to return to the Lakers. He’s instead joining the Clippers of all teams. Yes, those Clippers.
