HBO Stands by Winning Time After Criticism From Jerry West and Lakers Legends

April 27, 2022

HBO doesn’t see anything wrong with how Jerry West or anyone else is portrayed in the new series Winning Time. Created by Max Borenstein and Jim Hecht, the series is based on the original book Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s by Jeff Pearlman. Among its cast is Jason Clarke as former coach and general manager Jerry West, who took exception to his portrayal in the series.
