LA Clippers’ advisor, Jerry West, joined ESPN’s First Take on Monday to discuss the Chris Paul trade among other things.
Jerry West, who the LA Clippers recently hired as an advisor, went on ESPN’s First Take on Monday morning. The first question he was asked was about the departure of Chris Paul and his role in the trade.
West made it very clear that while he is not a decision maker for the team, he was adamant that he believes the team ‘made out very well’ despite losing the Point God. You can check out the video below:
West also made sure to mention that teams have already begun to call about some of the assets the team received from Houston and equated them to having chips to gamble with. There’s no clarification who the assets are, but teams must be interested in Patrick Beverly and Lou Williams.
Jerry West also revealed that his secret to his longevity in the league is his ability to get close to his critics. West said he believes that if you can understand their criticism, you can learn.
It has definitely been a wild summer for the Logo, who joined the LA Clippers after winning the title in a similar role for the Golden State Warriors. The Clips have seen Doc Rivers moved back to just coaching, the departure of Chris Paul, the addition of Danilo Gallinari and the hiring of a new general manager. The changes are everywhere, but Jerry West seems like he believes in the organization, specifically Steve Ballmer. Let’s just hope his belief is just.
