The pro golfer wed Warriors director of basketball operations Jonnie West last weekend in Beverly Hills. The Stanford alumnus and West, the son of Lakers Hall of Famer Jerry West, reportedly had an impressive list of athletes in attendance at the reception, including Warriors guard Stephen Curry and LPGA pros Danielle Kang, Jessica Korda, Marina Alex, Alison Lee and Alison Walshe. “She was so happy, and she looked so radiant,” David Leadbetter, the bride’s longtime coach, told Golf Channel. The network reports that the couple plan to make their home in San Francisco.
The goaltender regrets not having more friends and family at his last game with the Florida Panthers, but they’ll be invited for his jersey retirement instead. If he had known he was retiring, a decision he didn’t make until weeks later, he would have ensured that more loved ones were there. The Panthers said they will send Luongo’s No. 1 jersey to the rafters March 7. “Hopefully, there will be a lot of people in the building to enjoy that special moment with me,” said Luongo, who retired in June after 19 NHL seasons. His 489 career victories are third behind Martin Brodeur and Patrick Roy.
