Nice personal piece on Wen Roberts, the sports photographer who died this week, by David Davis at SoCal Sports Observed. Roberts was probably the photographer who captured Jerry West in the classic image that became the NBA's logo.
All those visual images we have of the Lakers –- Elgin hanging in the air, Wilt's dominance, Goodrich squaring to shoot, and, yes, Mr. Logo himself, Jerry West, driving to the basket –- speaks to the exquisite artistry of Wen Roberts.
Meanwhile, in today's L.A. Times the paper's ex-sports editor, Bill Dwyre, expresses his disappointment that there's now a regular gambling column in his former section.
