2 things that were interesting:

1. He said he wouldn’t join the clippers or lakers now because he would go a team with no stars. I guess it could be true because at the time no one knew Kobe would become a star.

2. He said Jerry West is the reason Kawhi went to the Clippers. It’s his opinion, but tbh this is where Jeanie (bleep) up. The Clippers were stuck with Blake with no creativity or foresight until the logo showed up. All Jeanie had to do was bring him back and she wouldn’t be feeling the Clippers threat.

Clippers had been targeting KL long before West. He's an 80+ yr old consultant, who I bet, no longer travels out of state to scout, to meet, to recruit, etc. This is the problem with hiring West, no matter who's doing the real work, Jerry gets the lip service from the public who has zero clue how things went down. Before you know it, there will be jealousy from the executives who are doing the heavy lifting. I would bet that's part of the reason GS didn't resign him. He was on the radio explaining why he left the Warriors, and talked the same talk, very similar to the explanation he gave about leaving lakers, about feeling not needed anymore.

Unless Jerry spoke to Kawhi way before free agency began (tampering), doubt Jerry did much to convince Kawhi.

Kawhi was already looking at the Clippers before free agency began.

He called up Durant, Kyrie, Butler, PG all well before free agency to join him with the Clippers, and he even used the Laker’s meeting as cover to get into a meeting with PG on the same day and place.

Kawhi can rot in Clippers hell.

Maybe he gave his own version of Jeanie Buss, Magic, Phil and the Rambii that was more convincing than Magic's version.

But Jerry West has been there a couple of years now and they had no clue before he got there tbh. They were going to roll with Blake!

Shaq is so hilarious. And he has some good jokes always when I see some of his interview. Only thing is that he said Lakers whe Jimmy asked him Lakers Vs Clippers because he is true laker. I would like to know what he really think. We will probably never know.

I don't care how old he is, his mind and vision is what you're paying for, and his basketball senses are still the best in the business.

I was just thinking we needed another thread discussing how awesome/overrated Jerry West is.

Good point. He probably worked Kawhi's ear in order to screw Brawn over. Kobe is evil.
