Lifetime Laker Jerry West a San Francisco (oops, Golden State) Warrior?

I'm sure long-time Golden State Warrior fans are thrilled that 14-time All Star, Hall of Famer, inspiration for the NBA logo (see graphic at right) and lifetime Los Angeles Laker, Jerry West, has joined the Warrior front-office in an advisory role and agreed to be a member of its executive board.

But I can't help wondering what Laker fans are thinking about this turn of events. Isn't this something of a betrayal? It's like Willie Mays consulting for the Dodgers, or Don Drysdale becoming the pitching coach for the Giants, or Roger Clemens pitching for the Yankees (oh, that's right, that did happen). It makes you wonder if something happened that alienated West and the Lakers, but as far as I know, nothing has, which makes me wonder: Is anything sacred anymore?
