St. Myer: Catching Up With Bonzi Wells

Thomas St. Myer of TheStarPress.com with a major feature piece on former Portland Trail Blazers guard Bonzi Wells, who recently tried out for the New York Knicks. ------------------- "I might walk into the gym with a bunch of hip-hop clothes and glasses and they're looking at you like, 'Oh man, he's a thug,'" says Bonzi, who set the Mid-American Conference career records in points (2,485) and steals (347) while at Ball State. "But that's all I knew. I never had a mentor or nobody who could pull me to the side and say, 'Bonzi this is the way you're supposed to handle stuff, and this is the way to live your life.' "By the time (former Portland Trail Blazers teammates) Scottie Pippen and Steve Smith tried to show me, I didn't want to hear it. I didn't trust nobody, because I'm from Muncie and I only trust family members, and I was always taught you don't trust anybody outside of family. I didn't open up to anybody until I was about six, seven years into the league. I was like, 'Hey, I'm out here by myself. I don't know you, you don't know me. I'm just doing my job.'
