HALL OF FAMER JERRY WEST, WHO WON TWO NBA TITLES WITH WARRIORS, DIES AT 86




Jerry West, the Hall of Fame player who won two NBA titles with the Warriors, died Wednesday at the age of 86. The Los Angeles Clippers announced that West died peacefully at his home. West was an NBA champion, an NBA Finals MVP, an Olympic gold medalist and the inspiration behind the league's iconic logo. He began his historic pro basketball career in 1960 and influenced the game of basketball for eight decades, winning nine championships as a player, scout, coach, executive and consultant.

The Los Angeles Lakers selected West with the No. 2 overall pick in the 1960 NBA Draft, and he spent his entire Hall of Fame playing career with the purple and gold. He averaged 27 points on 47.4 percent shooting, with 5.8 rebounds and 6.7 assists, in 932 games through 14 seasons. West was a 14-time NBA All-Star, 12-time All-NBA pick and five-time All-Defensive selection, but his impact went beyond those accolades.
