JERRY WEST: 33 YEARS AND 345 DAYS
The only title of Jerry West’s illustrious career came in his third-to-last season. He wasn’t just a role player for that Lakers title run, though. West may not have earned Finals MVP that year, but he did average 19.8 points and 8.8 assists in the championship series win against the Knicks. Interestingly enough, West does have a Finals MVP trophy to his name (it came in 1968-69), even though it didn’t come in the only year he won a title.
