Bonzi Wells is Charles Barkley
I reserve the right to change my mind, but as of today I’m rooting for the Kings to take the NBA crown.
Perhaps the most remarkable story of this postseason is the emergence of Bonzi Wells as the second coming of Charles Barkley. With Bonzi and Ron Artest at the two wing positions, the Kings remind me of the old Packers backfield of John Brockington and MacArthur Lane. Each had fullback size and power but with halfback maneuverability.
Bonzi and Ron are about as COMPLETE as two players can be, excelling at most every phase of the game. And where one is so-so (Ron on the boards), the other is out of this world. Bonzi has been a terror on the offensive boards, and the ability of Bonzi and Ron to beat various Spurs off the dribble has turned this opening round series into a donneybrook.
