4. Jerry West
Ahh 'The Logo'. One of the greatest ever players and scorers to don the yellow and purple of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Jerry West was the original big game performer. 'Mr. Clutch' always raised his game on the big occasions, notably where he torched the Bullets for a playoffs record of 46.0 points or his incredible 38.0 point series vs the elite Celtics, bagging 42 points in the deciding Game Seven.
Jerry was one of the best shooters of all time, if not the best of them all. He could find the bottom of the net from nearly anywhere with ease, and this allowed him to excel as an outside threat with the ability to still get to the basket for a lay up.
He scored numerous times above 30 points while primary being a jump shooter on incredible efficiency.
West was a reliable, consistent and devastating scorer who rose to the occasion in the post season and finals. He elevated himself when it mattered most, especially in the Finals, where he scored at a rate that couldn't be matched.
- 25,192 career points
- 1 scoring title
- Third on the playoffs all time list in points per game
