Staples Center

Kurt Rambis back home for West tribute (video)

One of the highlights of Thursday at NBA All-Star Weekend in LA was the unveiling of a Jerry West statue outside of Staples Center. Among the many Lakers greats in attendance was Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis. The six-time NBA Champion (four as a player, two as an assistant coach) was back in Los Angeles, the place where he built his winning resume. These days, Rambis is leading a rebuilding, struggling Wolves organization. His team's 13-43 record is a far cry from the glory days in Laker Land.  For a few minutes on Thursday, Rambis found himself back in the NBA penthouse.
