Behind Enemy Lines with NBA Scouts

True Hoop reports on an article in the current Sports Illustrated (the print version) that boasts extensive “Behind Enemy Lines” quotes from anonymous scouts on nearly every team.

On Bonzi Wells: “The Rockets have so many good citizens that Bonzi Wells will be O.K. It reminds me of the old quote from Al McGuire: You can afford to have one donkey, but you can’t have two because then they’ll breed.”
