Top Ten Lakers Draft Picks

2. Jerry West

Jerry West was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers the 2nd pick of the 1960 NBA Draft.  West was an amazing player, and he was the face of the franchise during the era.  West also spent his entire career with the Lakers, but he was only able to win one championship.

Despite the fact that West was playing along side Wilt Chamberlain, he did not experience a lot of success in the Finals.  West retired the game as the Lakers’ all-time leading scorer, and in 1980 he was inducted into the basketball hall-of-fame.  The current NBA logo is designed after Jerry West, and many believe West was one of the greatest players to every play in the league.

In his illustrious 14-year NBA career, Jerry West averaged 27.0 points per game, 5.8 rebounds per game and 6.7 assists per game.
