As America continues to mourn the tragic loss of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, and eight other passengers (including three teenage girls) aboard that helicopter, Jerry West spoke on the ordeal.

West played for the Los Angeles Lakers for 13 seasons and coached the same team for three season in addition to spending time with the team’s front office before eventually helping the Golden State Warriors as a front office board member in 2011 before leaving for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2017.
