Even at 75, Jerry West Can't Miss

Friday December 20th, 2013

Jerry West, better known as "Mr. Clutch" or "The Logo," put on a demonstration for schoolchildren on how to shoot a basketball.

Suffice to say, he made his point.

The 14-time All Star, who is 75-years-old, showed proper technique, and then improper, but still made all 13 shots he took in the video above.

"I'm going to tell you, when you learn how to do it, you won't ever forget it," West tells the children after saying he hasn't shot a basketball in years.

West shot 47.4 percent from the field in his career and 81.4 percent from the free-throw line. (There were no 3-pointers back in his day.)
