For the past six years, Hall of Famer Jerry West has served as a special consultant for the Warriors.

West spent the last six seasons with the Warriors, helping the team win two championships. Over the past several years, we turned the Forum into the most successful concert venue in the West, and the #2 ranked facility of its kind in the country. Not that West was not active with the Warriors, he just likes to accept and take on new challenges.

During his storied career as an National Basketball Association executive, "The Logo" served as the general manager of the Los Angeles Lakers between 1982 and 2000 before taking his talents to the Memphis Grizzlies in 2002.

"I don't feel old", he said. West was also credited with a phone call to Kevin Durant previous year that helped convince the prized free agent to leave Oklahoma City for Golden State. That might be the reason for his departure from the Warriors as he feels that he has been defiant his whole life.

Jessica Chastain in negotiations for villainous role in DARK PHOENIX
Even if you consider yourself a loyal disciple of Fox's lucrative mutant franchise, the X-Men lore can be hard to parse. Last week, reports emerged that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will finally embrace the cosmic side of Marvel's mutant heroes.

The move is believed to be part of the Clippers strategy to entice key free agents and retain their stars, particularly Chris Paul who has reportedly been intrigued about joining the San Antonio Spurs. Thus the Clippers need all the helpful advice they can get, and West brings a well-earned reputation as one of the cleverest move-makers in National Basketball Association history. He was not in a decision-making position with the Warriors but his voice carried weight with the franchise.

In 2002, West became general manager of the Grizzlies, a team located much closer to his home state of West Virginia.

The letter reads: "On Wednesday morning the City announced it was entering into an unprecented agreement without a shred of public notice or public process to enter into an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement to develop a new arena in the City of Inglewood".
