Best known as the “master architect” of the Los Angeles Lakers, NBA Hall of Famer Jerry West is widely regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. During his prosperous 19-year run as both general manager and executive vice president, the Lakers captured four NBA Championships and made eight trips to the NBA Finals. Known for his shrewd personnel moves and trades, West is responsible for assembling the “Showtime” Lakers of the late 1980s and for repositioning the team among the NBA’s elite. From his rough childhood in the West Virginia mountains to unbelievable college and NBA success, West joins Connections 2018 to share his incredible story.
