Hey, Jerry West: AMEN



By Moose

Just saw this come across the ESPN wire. The man is speaking the truth. I don't want to spark another Bron-Kobe debate, but this is big for Kobe haters and LBJ lovers right here. Here is an excerpt, via ESPN. You can read the full post here.

"I look at Cleveland [and] say to myself, 'How many games could they win without LeBron James?'" West told Reuters in an interview. "That's how great he is.

"He has a chance to be arguably the greatest player ever to play the game."

West, the NBA's executive of the year with the Lakers in 1995 and the Memphis Grizzlies in 2004, said playing both ends of the floor was what made Jordan so great.

"Michael Jordan was the best defensive player in the league but he was also the best offensive player," said West. "It wasn't a one-year fluke, he proved it over time.

"LeBron James will do the same type of things because he's getting better. He's a much more effective shooter. When's he's making his shots from the outside, you can't play him.

"He's just too big, too strong, too quick. And he has incredible body control. But more than that, he's a great teammate. You can see his teammates love him."


And that last part is what sets Kobe and LeBron apart. I agree with every single word coming out of West's mouth right here. Keep preaching to the choir, Jerry.

Not sure why one of a team's top execs would say this about their star player the day of Game 1 of the Conference Finals. Just another example of LA's douchiness I guess..

The thought that it might be a fake and that West is just trying to fire Kobe up crossed my mind.

I sure hope Mr. Clutch ain't faking his words...
