Re: HBO ...Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty

have any of your folks seen this series on HBO yet?

I've seen the 1st 3 episodes... and I'm really beginning to really like this series.

Yes, I've seen the episodes too and, so far...so good. Right now, it's at the point where I want to see the next episode, but not necessarily the second they're released on Sunday evening.

You mentioned Jerry West. Though I've definitely heard that he's ultra-competitive and gets super anxious when dealing with team matters (i.e. on-court performance and player acquisitions), him being depicted as being so depressed that he's unable to dress out of his tidy-whities in a darkened room is a bit much.

Definitely have to remind myself of that significant disclaimer at the beginning or end of the show about it not being totally accurate. The Tarkanian thing sounds real, though.

But it seems like a fun show.
