    bonzi and JVG have not gotten along at all in Houston. So much so than he hasn't even played in any of their games and regularly misses practices.

    Do you think he'd be a good fit for this team? Flip's relatively lax attitude and his rebounding, inside scoring, and defensive abilities seem like something we could use.

    flip murray for bonzi? i'd do it in a heartbeat.

    well of course. but it seems a lot more likely and feasable to get somebody like bonzi than a superstar through a blockbuster trade.

    no way.

    dude's a proven cancer. we might get him cheap since he's on the rocks in Houston, but i'd pass.

    I know a gypsy woman who claims to have a line on Wilt.

    Sure, I'd take Bonzi for Flip. Worst that could happen is that Bonzi gets permanently suspended and Delfino plays.

    I think Flip Murray and Carlos Delfino are starting to work well with the team. The Bonzi Wells train has passed.

    You're probably right. I just like saying "Bonzi".

    how is this guy a cancer? he was a part of the jailblazers but so was sheed...

    he can score from both the outside and in the paint, plus hes an excellent rebounder for a guard... and can defend pretty well too.

    There has to be a reason why he isn't playing in Houston and why he got into the dog house so quickly. I'd be interested in hearing more of what is really going on before welcoming him in with open arms.

    there was an article that said that JVG wanted bonzi to come out on a road swing to get acclimated with the team but bonzi declined so bonzi is getting some personal time off. i think the line was : Your contract is guaranteed, you're minutes aren't.

    he was injured to start the year. i'd take him over flip murray in an INSTANT. but i'd also take mopete (a safer bet).

    and himat, if you want to keep pierce on the bench, that's perfectly okay. :D

    Wells has pouted, butted heads, and sulked on just about every team he's been on. I was living in Portland when he was there and that guy is a complete jackass. If you want to ruin your team chemistry at lightspeed, acquire Bonzi Wells.

    He played his ass off in Sac. because he needed to get signed in the offseason. His play is streaky at best and his attitude leaves streaks if you catch my meaning....

    ben had pouted and butted heads with just about every coach he's had. he also won a championship here. i think bonzi can come in and provide much much more than flip murray. i say if houston will take flip i say we ship his butt off pronto. even if bonzi doesn't act right at least we got rip of flip.

    What is the fascination with Bonzi. If he was worth anything he wouldn't be bouncing around like plastic bags on the freeway.
