Jerry West statue unveiling: Kobe Bryant pays tribute to West
Lakers star guard Kobe Bryant wasn't able to make it to the ceremony tonight, but he recorded video comments thanking Jerry West, who brought Bryant to the Lakers.
"Obviously it's a great honor," Bryant said in the video. "Nobody deserves it more than you, Mr. Clutch. I love you and thank you for everything you've done for me in my career."
Also present are Oscar De La Hoya, Wayne Gretzky and Mike Dunleavy.
