Jerry West Talks Kobe Bryant, His Legacy & Childhood

Recently we were fortunate enough to be invited to an open forum with Los Angeles Lakers legend Jerry West. At the event West fielded questions on his new autobiography, West By West: My Charmed, Tormented Life.

West discussed life with the Lakers, his haunting childhood, and why he ultimately made the decision to leave the organization after decades with the team. West also discussed current Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant, and who would win a game of H.O.R.S.E. between the two.
