UPDATE: NBA Legend Mentoring Cam Newton - With Audio

On my way home I was listening to ESPNLA's Max and Marcellus show and they were talking about Dwight Howard leaving the Lakers, blah blah blah....then they talk about the Logo and NBA legend Jerry West and how things may be different if he were still running the Lakers...

 

Then all of a sudden, the fill in for Max Kellerman starts talking about how Jerry West was brought in by Jerry Richardson to help mentor Cam Newton and that he was working with Cam on "getting his mind right."

 

It was just a 30 second mention but I hope that this is a true story.

 

Given it was radio, obviously no links at the moment.

 

However, I could not find this anywhere online in any articles either so if anyone can confirm this it would be great.

 

Thoughts?

 

Edit:

 

Here is the MP3 of the podcast I recorded straight from audio. For those interested in the Max and Marcellus podcast, it is in the last two minutes of hour 2 on 6/27/13.

 

The fill in for Max Kellerman is a journalist named Rick Schwartz and he is the one who actually mentions Jerry West and Cam Newton. He states that no one really knows about this. He is also a decent journalist (broke Brett Favre retirement story). So there may be some validity to his claim.

A little surprising but that is good news. I think we would have heard of this though... I'm interested to hear more on this.

Read Jerry Wests autobiography - he had a few mind problems of his own.  much as I like West I dont see how hes going to turn an immature kid into a mature one.  If Cam ever grows up its going to be his own doing, not a mind coaches.

i'm skeptical of this development because, with how information starved this place is right now, this board would have been all over a story like this before anybody on ESPN, especially an out of market station, would have bothered to mention it.

That's why I posted it before anybody else. Lets see how true it is. I tweeted the show host and other "NFL" guys
