Mark Heisler has an interesting chat with Jerry West

 I had an interesting talk with Jerry West the other day, when he mentioned--in the first time I ever heard it, that he was almost traded to the Phoenix Suns.... "If I had wanted to go, I would have gone." West said. "I would have made a lot more money.... But in the end, I just couldn’t do it. Because they would have traded me to Phoenix for Charlie Scott. But I’m glad I finished my career in Los Angeles..."
