‘One of the best play-by-play announcers in the game’

27 Mar, 2015

Upon hearing the news of Hundley’s death, West gives this statement:

I am saddened by the news of the passing of my longtime friend, Rod Hundley. I first met Rod when I was 18 and he encouraged me to attend West Virginia University. We were Laker teammates and never lost contact…Rod was not only a great basketball player, but one of the best play-by-play announcers in the game. He will be missed by all those he touched through his legendary career as will his colorful story-telling.
