Jerry West: The Life and Legend of a Basketball Icon, By Roland Lazenby.
Asked to create a logo for the NBA in 1969, designer Alan Siegel illustrated the graceful silhouette of Jerry West. That logo has helped sustain the legend inspired by a singular career, and this is the long-awaited recounting of that career, the dramatic story of a skinny kid from West Virginia coal country who made himself into the Los Angeles Lakers' "Mr. Clutch," a man feared by opponents and idolized by millions.
