"Every city needs it. We need it. It will be great for San Francisco," co-owner Peter Guber said. "We now have proof, not just promises."
"I'm really pleased that we were able to add someone the caliber of Jerry West to our organization," Guber said. "He has earned great respect in all circles, including the entire entertainment field, and his business savvy will serve us well and prove invaluable. Overall, his career has been nothing short of remarkable and his name alone has become synonymous with winning and success."
