Jerry West Says HBO’s ‘Winning Time’Is A ‘Deliberately False Characterization.’

Date:

Jerry West has expressed his contempt towards HBO. 

“The portrayal of NBA icon and LA Lakers’ legend Jerry West in ‘Winning Time’ is fiction pretending to be fact — a deliberately false characterization that has caused great distress to Jerry and his family,” West’s attorney said. 

Through his legal counsel, Jerry West has demanded a retraction from HBO, Warner Bros. Discovery, and producer Adam McKay for their portrayal of West in the HBO series “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty.” 

“The portrayal of NBA icon and LA Lakers’ legend Jerry West in ‘Winning Time’ is fiction pretending to be fact — a deliberately false characterization that has caused great distress to Jerry and his family,” West’s attorney, Skip Miller, partner at Miller Barondess, LLP, said in a statement. 

“Contrary to the baseless portrayal in the HBO series, Jerry had nothing but love for and harmony with the Lakers organization, and in particular owner Dr. Jerry Buss, during an era in which he assembled one of the greatest teams in NBA history.”
