Lakers' legends

November 14, 2009

Six NBA championships. Six MVP awards.

Three NCAA championships. (Not four because Kareem played on UCLA's freshman team that defeated the varsity, the defending NCAA champion).

Can we please stop dithering and start chiseling a statue of this man to be unveiled in its rightful place outside of the Staples Center?

Jerry West not having been voted as one of the two best guards in L.A. Lakers history is as unthinkable as Magic Johnson or Kobe Bryant not being chosen 20 years from now.
