Jerry West Rumors

He was presented with a veritable biopic of himself, and the prevailing theme was clear: He was the lifeblood of the Clippers, the team’s native son, an evolving star just beginning to scratch the surface of his leadership potential. Soon thereafter, Griffin committed to remaining with the Clippers, accepting a maximum offer hours before the NBA’s official July 1 starting gun sounded.
