  1. Jerry West played for Univ of VA or W VA, not sure, and went on to play NBA ball for the Lakers. He could do it all! He was one of the best all around players of all time and had a deadly long shot that always gave him high scorer of the game! He was liked by all and I think he went into management with the front office of the Lakers, but am not certain if that is the case. He was one of the VERY BEST EVER in my mind! PG
