Jerry West’s 40-point triple-double against the Boston Celtics in the 1969 Finals was the “low point of my career”

The Los Angeles Lakers had the Boston Celtics right where they wanted them in the 1969 NBA Finals. They were home for a winner-take-all Game 7. The Celtics had won nine of their last 10 championships and the Lakers, led by Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor, the Lakers were hungry to dethrone their rivals .

West had the game of his life. He amassed 42 points, hauled 13 rebounds and dished out 12 assists. He walked away as the MVP of the series. West also admitted that the game was the “low point of my career.”
