L.A. Lakers Great Jerry West To Speak About Memoir In Santa Monica Tonight:

Los Angeles Lakers great Jerry West is one of basketball’s towering figures: “Mr. Clutch,” who mesmerized his opponents and fans; the coach who began the Lakers’ resurgence in the 1970s; the general manager who helped bring “Showtime” to Los Angeles, creating a championship-winning force that continues to this day.

West will speak with Peter Guber about his memoir, West By West in Santa Monica tonight at Track 16 gallery.

A reception will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with the main event at 8 p.m.

Now, for the first time, West tells his story-from his tough childhood in West Virginia, to his unbelievable college success at West Virginia University, his 40-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, and his relationships with NBA legends like Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Kobe Bryant. His long-awaited book West by West: My Charmed, Tormented Life is far more than a sports memoir.

Guber is Chairman and CEO of the multimedia Mandalay Entertainment Group.

Prior to Mandalay, Guber was Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment, Chairman and CEO of Polygram Entertainment, Co-Founder of Casablanca Record & Filmworks and President of Columbia Pictures.

Guber is also Owner and Co-executive Chairman of the NBA franchise, the Golden State Warriors.
