One of the local sports radio stations here in Dallas just did a piece on a man named William Wesley, a.k.a. Worldwide Wes. I found it incredibly interesting. This man is deeply involved behind the scenes in EVERYTHING...the NBA, NFL, politics, music, and pop culture.

“At any given time, if you look at any sporting event, there’s a very good chance you’re going to see Wes,” says NBA analyst David Aldridge. Over the years, Wes has been spotted hugging Jerry Jones on the field after a Cowboys Super Bowl win, high-fiving University of Miami football players after a national championship win, and embracing Joe Dumars after the Pistons won the NBA Finals. He’s been spotted sitting next to Jay-Z at the NBA All-Star Game, with Nike czar Phil Knight at the Final Four, and trolling the sidelines of Team USA practices in Las Vegas and Japan. “People who really know Wes,” says superagent David Falk, Wes’s longtime friend, “know that he’s one of the two or three most powerful people in the sport."

“I thought he worked for the Secret Service or the FBI or the CIA. Then I thought he was a pimp, providing players with chicks, or a loan shark or a bodyguard or a vice commissioner to the league.” The few people who know what Wes is really up to aren’t talking. And that’s the way Wes likes it.

Many of the stories circulating about Wes are sensationalistic: He was a guest at Frank Sinatra’s funeral. He worked as an operative for his close friends Bill and Hillary Clinton. Spike Lee is planning a movie about his life.

Has anyone heard of him or does anybody know about him? I just now heard of him and this really intrigues me.

I've heard about him several times, mainly in Bill Simmons columns, but I know next to nothing about him.

Is this a sarcastic thread or what?

Anyone who knows anything about MCBB knows WWW has been illegally funneling talent to Calipari for years. He's the scum to Cals slime.
