West spent whole playing career with Lakers and helped reshape organization from leading office
Buss abandoned West, who also spent his whole Hall of Famer profession with the Lakers and helped reshape the organization at the front office, off her listing.
"I watched another day Jeanie Buss produced a statement, the five main Lakers, among the most offensive things I've ever heard in my entire life. I had been there a great deal of occasions, had a great deal of success," West told Peter Vecsey about the "Hoop Du Jour Podcast" at a recent installment. "Be curious to learn if they'd have experienced that success when I had not been there.
"And I never take credit for things, I do not. When I was about, perhaps I was a fantastic luck charm. However, I do understand, when this item fell apart, there was plenty of years in which they were not very great "
West was a one time NBA winner as a participant and 14-time All-Star and has been the team's general director from 1982 to 2000, bringing Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal to the group along with hiring Jackson since the head coach.
Buss' listing sparked a controversy with several Lakers fans wondering just how she's left O'Neal, West and Elgin Baylor.
