Summary
He is one of basketball's towering figures. Known as "Mr. Clutch," who mesmerized his opponents and fans; he later became the coach who began the Lakers' resurgence in the 1970s; and 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, it is a profound confession and a magnificent inspiration
