'The Logo' Jerry West takes in #TexansCamp

"The Logo" was at practice on Thursday.

Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer Jerry West, who's silhouette became the NBA's logo, was on the Texans' sidelines at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. Currently an executive with the Los Angeles Clippers, the West Virginia native was a welcome sight to Houston head coach Bill O'Brien.

"Somebody said "The Logo" was here, and I was like 'The Logo?,' and Jerry West – one of the greatest basketball players of all time, and I know he's from West Virginia," O'Brien said. "Hopefully I get a chance to meet him."

O'Brien called West "a legend", and it was the second straight day a notable NBA personality took in a Texans camp practice. On Wednesday and Thursday, Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni was in attendance. He and West spent a considerable amount of time during Thursday's practice talking with team COO Cal McNair and general manager Rick Smith.

The Texans will put on full pads for Friday's training camp practice.
