What would the L.A. Lakers be like if Jerry West never came around? He was the team's first draft pick after moving from Minneapolis; was the NBA's model guard for his entire 15-year career (1960-1974); stands third on the all-time scoring average list (career 27.0 ppg); led the 1971-72 team to a championship and the title "Greatest team of All-Time"; and became the league's greatest executive, building the dominant Lakers squads of the 1980s and early 2000s. In shaping 40 years of Lakers history, there is no telling where the franchise would be without him!
As most sports fans know, the NBA used an early photo of West as the model for its classic red-white-and-blue logo. But, they could have chosen this image to make an equally impressive design! Leaping high above long-time nemesis Oscar Robertson to release a perfect finger roll, West creates a majestic, poetic body form that reminds you exactly why you love the game of hoops. Published exclusively for SportsPosterWarehouse.com, this poster is the perfect way to remember the legendary Laker and the amazing "Greatest Team" era, when he, Goodrich, Chamberlain, Riley and the rest almost never lost. For fans of old-school hoops, don't miss your chance to add this classic to your sports wall-of-fame! Printed from the original photographic negative, and complete with official NBA Products serialized hologram, this is both a stunning piece for any fan, and a valuable collector's item for years to come.
