3. JERRY WEST
Basketball Hall of Fame
NBA Finals MVP
14x NBA All-Star
“Mr Clutch” embodied the spirit of everything it means to be a Laker, and still does to this day.
He is still the only player in NBA history to ever be awarded the Finals MVP despite being on the losing team and is still considered one of the purest shooters the league has ever seen.
In Lakers’ postseason history, West ranks 2nd in points (4,457), 6th in games played (153) and 3rd in assists (973) all time.
He went on to coach the Lakers for three years (1976-79′) and later won Executive of the Year with the Lakers in 1995.
His silhouette remains a part of NBA logo to this day.
