Henry Abbott hat in seinem fabulösen True Hoop-Blog noch einmal einen Eintrag zu William Wesley gemacht (ich wies vor 10 Tagen auf den Mann hin), sozusagen seine Zusammenfassung nach acht Monaten Recherche zu dem Schattenmann in der NBA: “Lessons from Williams Wesley“.
You can see it in pictures for yourself online. There he is: arriving late at night at a hotel in Shanghai with Allen Iverson, helping to break up the famous Piston-Pacer squabble in Auburn Hills, and in snappy formalwear arm in arm with the birthday boy at LeBron Jamesâ€™ 21st.
He has a clean-shaven head, a ready smile, and an appearance that has been compared to a grown-up Urkel.
His name is William Wesley, and for more than a decade it has been something of an open secret in the NBA that he is about as connected an NBA insider as there has ever been.
