"OK, I’VE SEEN ENOUGH."

That’s what Hall of Famer Jerry West said after watching Kobe Bryant workout with Laker legend Michael Cooper.  West’s scouting report was simple:

"Best workout I’ve ever seen. He’s better than anybody we have on the team right now. Let’s go."

From West’s memoir:  "When I said I had seen enough, I meant it. I knew who he was, and just from looking at his eyes, I knew what he wanted."

Larry Bird once called 5x champion, Michael Cooper, the best defender he ever faced.  Cooper’s assessment of Bryant after their head-to-head battle?

"Shit, this guy can play."
