A truly great player, too often diminished by his unfortunate term as a GM. Wes was one of the NBA's All Time Greats, a term I use rarely.
Wes was a great layer and most likely he and Adrian Dantley (no offense to Barkley fans) were the best of the best in the post for guys who while tall weren't Giants.
The irony of his career was he played his best with Elvin Hayes the guy he beat out for controversial Rookie of the Year win.
Man he knew how to set a pick, block out, and throw an outlet pass.
