Jerry West was a great basketball player, and Michael Jordan paid tribute to him on First Take.

Yesterday, it was announced that the man on the NBA logo had died at the age of 86, with his wife by his side.

A lot of people have said nice things about West, who was a champion on and off the court.

And First Take said on X that Jordan, who is 61 years old, texted Stephen A. Smith while he was live to share his own words.

“I am so deeply saddened by the news of Jerry’s death,” Smith said in MJ’s place.

“He was a real friend and teacher.” Like a big brother to me.

“I valued our friendship and what he knew.”

“I always wished I could have played against him, but as I got to know him better, I wished I had been on his team.”

“I liked his basketball insights, and the way he and I played the game was a lot alike.”

“He will be missed always. My condolences to his son and wife Karen.” Logo, may you rest in peace.

A fan said on a clip of the tribute, “Wow, that’s really nice of MJ.”

“Jerry West was the best general manager ever.” Definitely the GOAT GM. “Rest in peace, Jerry ‘The Logo’ West,” said someone else.

“He will be missed,” wrote a third.

It’s Jerry West, all class! “Rest in peace,” said a fourth.

“And he was telling her, “No way!” I believe Michael Jordan is the best. I think it’s fair for him.

West was one of the best players in NBA history, and he also helped the Los Angeles Lakers become a dynasty in the 1980s.

For the last few months, he had been a consultant for the Los Angeles Clippers.

West was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2019 and a statue by the Lakers in 2010.
