    From the Seatle Times:
    • Houston G Bonzi Wells did not accompany the team to Seattle. Coach Jeff Van Gundy said he was unsure of Wells' whereabouts and several Rockets employees said they believe the disgruntled swingman will be released from the team.

    If this happens maybe Joe would take a flyer on him for the playof drive.

    Bonzi Yes or No?

    It's too late to add a player off waivers for the playoffs.

    It would be too late to add him to this year's playoff roster, but if Joe is really interested in him, would he be able to sign him to a contract that extended past the end of this season (for example, the remainder of this season and next)?

    That would give him a chance to get comfortable with the players, coaches and system well ahead of next season's free agency period. It also might allow Joe D to sneak him away before the majority of the other teams are even thinking about next season.

    Just a thought. Not sure if it would work though, or even if Joe or Bonzi would be interested.

    Not sure if you want Bonzi here; he's bad for team chemistry.

    Sometimes players are "bad for team chemestry" on pupose to force a release... maybe he's been talking to Sheed.

    I wonder how that conversation went, from Bonzi's side:

    "I am a malcontent"?

    "I am a team-disrupting cancer"?

    "Stop me before I go all T.O. on y'all"?

    Bonzi is a loser to the umpteenth degree. He's like Tim Thomas last year in Phoenix(and Chicago). HE pouts on the bench all season and when its contract time, steps it up on a national stage, like playoff time. Wells could have stayed in Sacmo and been well recieved. Just to much baggage here.

    If Joe were interested in Bonzi, he'd probably already be here.

    If Joe did have interest, however, he could bring Bonzi in for the remaining few games to see how he fits. We're gonna be in "coast" mode for the last few games anyway.

    Ultimately, I don't think Joe's in a position to mess with the team's rhythm and chemistry at this stage of the season. Any minutes Bonzi would get would take away from Delfino - and I don't think you want to mess with Carlos' confidence at this point.

    Delfino has confindence, lol? I think alot of you may think i'm not really up on delfino which is not true. I like his athleticism and his decision to play hard D every night. However, I just dont know if I can trust this guy wholeheartedly in the playoffs after he made huge fundemental mistakes in regular season games. I would definitely like to keep Delf, I just feel he needs a little more PT to be more reliable in games that have more importance. In these last 5 games it would be nice for him to start a couple so he can feel how its like to ultimately responsible for his team winning or losing.

    No, No, and No.

    Oh and then No, because of no...and when you think of no, you are only left with one choice...No.

    But, if no and no aren't enough to convince you, then maybe you would considering looking at it from the vantage point of No. But, then again, no has always been a pretty good gauge of whether or not you should say no.

    Me personally, I'd say no. But, IMO that's really the only way one could rationally come to a conclusion on No when considering the whole matter of No and No. I've heard a number of arguments in the way of No, but usually that tends to make me a stronger believer in No. But, I would prefer that No, No, and probably No were contemplated before coming to the point of choosing No.

    I don't know...I was just thinking No. No idea...:noidea:

    I think Low just hit us with what David Spade referred to in one commercial as a "NO-storm."

    I'm not sure why, but I'm beginning to think we might not want Bonzi.

    Don't know what happened, I just kept seeing the word NO in gold letters flashing in front of my eyes.

    Its an opportunity that was missed last summer and at the trading deadline and may have been a blessing on the wall.

    When players like Bonzi and Sprewell already have questional baggage and then over state their value by demanding to much cash munny that is the sign to stayaway from them and let them upset some other teams chemistry. On the other hand when you are struggling below .500 every season, then you open up the pocket book with open arms!!!

    With at being said, it would have been nice to have had Eddie Jones coming off the bench for us instead of the Heat during this playoff run.
