Awesome news, basically everyone would've been paid a fortune to leave somewhere else but everyone wants to stay (I bet they all got good raises too). Love that this a place that everyone wants to poach FO talent from, but a place where everyone rather stay and build something significant.

It really intrigues me. Makes me think they know something for 2 of the guys to turn down a POBO and GM job and Jerry not jumping to a new project

Jerry West explains what makes the Clippers front office one of the best ever

“I always think ownership’s such a big part of success in this league. You look at this owner, Steve Ballmer. First of all, he’s one of the nicest men I’ve ever been around in my life. Unbelievably philanthropic. He is really genuine, there’s nothing phony about him. He has a tremendous amount of passion. He’s an ideal owner to have, an absolutely ideal owner to have.”


“There’s nothing that goes undone with this franchise in terms of work ethic. I’ve never seen people work so hard. Our meetings are filled with people expressing their own opinions. I think it’s healthy. I watch people say there should be only one voice — at the end of the day, there should be only one voice, I agree there. But in your meetings you have a right to dissent, and we have a lot of people that dissent.”


“At the end of the day, Lawrence Frank’s going to make the call, and I really like working with him. He’s smart, flies under the radar, which I think is very important. And he has great relationships with people, both on a coaching front and, more importantly, agents.”

Jerry West talks Presidential Medal of Freedom, Clippers’ tampering fine

Full Interview...


Jerry West talks Presidential Medal of Freedom, Clippers’ tampering fine

On the award, he added: “It’s not something I’ve ever really thought about, but I’ve looked at some of the people on the award who’ve been there and done some extraordinary things in sports, but more importantly, they made a difference in the way we look at minorities in this world. And some of them are my great friends and people I’ve admired for years. To be in that class, I’m really thrilled.”


“Well, I have to say, there’s a lot of players I greatly admire, I really do,” West said. “But it’s a slippery slope out there. And I think, Dan, there’s two sets of rules. You know when you’re in college and people want you to go to school, you get recruited? Well, heck, the players can do anything they want to today. And that’s acceptable. You say, ‘I’m gonna recruit this guy, I’m gonna recruit that guy.’

“Well, I don’t think any player could ever recruit me. Never. I would want to play where I thought the situation was better for me, that maybe it’s someplace where I always wanted to consider. But free agency is difficult, and I think it’s really terrible when some of these great players are mentioned while the playoffs are going on, particularly by players.

“Coaches – how do you promote the game? There are so many players I’d like to say nice things about, that I greatly admire and I really appreciate how they play, you just – you’re almost afraid to promote the game that you love.”
