Jerry West's beef with the Lakers complicated his legendary history with a legendary franchise

  • last month
The great Jerry West is perhaps the definitive Laker -- a legend with a hand in building almost all of that franchise's glory. However, in his latter years, West developed a bit of a feud with Lakers management. The seeds of that beef were planted many years prior, but took a while to fully blossom. All told, it's a fascinating but pretty typical story for a franchise that ranks among history's greatest *and* among history's most complicated.
