West By West : My Charmed, Tormented Life, Paperback / softback Book

West By West : My Charmed, Tormented Life Paperback / softback


He is one of basketball's towering figures: 'Mr. Clutch,' who mesmerized his opponents and fans. The coach who began the Lakers' resurgence in the 1970s.

The general manager who helped bring 'Showtime' to Los Angeles, creating a championship-winning force that continues to this day.

Now, for the first time, the legendary Jerry West tells his story - from his tough childhood in West Virginia, to his unbelievable college success at West Virginia University, his 40-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers and his relationships with NBA legends like Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal, and Kobe Bryant.

Unsparing in its self-assessment and honesty, WEST BY WEST is far more than a sports memoir: it is a profound confession and a magnificent inspiration
