“Oh yeah LeBron, you totally have better abs than Michael Jordan did.”
According to Gary Parrish last night, World Wide Wes was taking in the sights at the LeBron Skills Academy yesterday. More importantly than that he was hanging out with Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist on the sidelines and potentially poking fun at the NCAA. I’m not exactly sure how to feel about that – but as long as we’re in the clear, it’s pretty funny. Here’s what Parrish observed:
Wesley is a longtime and well-documented power-broker who now works with Creative Arts Agency (CAA). And even though people associated with agents are supposed to be nowhere close to players at an event like this, Wesley has spent the better part of tonight sitting in a chair on the court around Kentucky freshmen Anthony Davis and Michael Gilchrist, and within talking and bumping distance of every high-school prospect in attendance.
Nike officials allow it to happen.
So it happens.
It’s important to remember that as far as agents go, Wesley is not one. He’s associated with them, but he’s not one. Also, Gilchrist and WWW have reportedly been close for some time, so take that for what it’s worth.
