…depends on what your definition of “retirement” is…

The Golden State Warriors hired Jerry West on Friday to work with the front-office team in an [i]advisory role [/i] and be [i]a member of the executive board[/i]. West will [i]assist[/i] the basketball operations staff and the business arm of the team, reporting directly to new owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber.

Sounds to me like a glam spot.

He can still enjoy the perks of being a high-ranking executive in a very glitzy and lucrative industry… …while really having no responsibility. Lots of those type positions in sports.

While he’s at it, he should moonlight on a BCS Bowl Board of Trustees.

Ask Paterno. Rest assured he knows the answer to that question…whatever it may be.

Probably afraid of reducing their lives to posting on internet sports forums.
