Rest in Peace NBA legend Jerry West

One Los Angeles Laker Celtics fans always had a lot of respect for despite the rivalry was Jerry West. The NBA icon has passed away peacefully at the age of 86.

Jerry West was 14 time NBA All-Star, 12 time All-NBA selection, 5 time All-Defensive Team pick, NBA champion, and NBA Finals MVP. As an NBA executive he would win 8 more championships. West rebuilt the Lakers in 1996 trading starting center Vlade Divac to the Charlotte Hornets for the draft rights to Kobe Bryant and signing Shaquille O'Neal away from the Orlando Magic.

West is also known as the silhouette for the NBA's iconic logo and we offer prayers to his family at this time.
