Oracular basketball shadow agent William “Worldwide Wes” Wesley (profiled here, if you’re unfamiliar with the man or his unique and sort of spooky aura) was in Indianapolis last night, likely following Oregon around because of his connections to Nike. He could only follow so far, because for the first time Air Jordan 8s that anyone seems to remember, he was specifically barred from his Air Jordan 16s usual in game haunts: the locker rooms, tunnels, and press boxes that generally require a credential. The flier worked, too shortly, before the game started, reporter Kent Taylor tweeted this photo of Wesley outside, and added “Security guard just took Worldwide Wes out”:
The idea that the NCAA Air Jordan Spizike would target the mysterious Wesley and distribute pictures of him to security guards near the court is one of the more interesting developments of the NCAA tournament. Especially because Wesley has long been seen around college players and high school prospects, even at NCAA controlled events.
Potter said he wasn’t sure who distributed the pictures, and Wolken couldn’t figure why Wesley was singled out. He works for Creative Arts Agency, so there is some (shaky) basis for preemptively separating him from student athletes, and of course no one without a credential is allowed into credentialed areas anyway, but some things still don’t make much sense about his blacklisting. What’s the point of the credentialing process if they have to pass out a picture of someone without a credential to keep him away? How did they know Wesley was planning on attending? How did it end up that he was removed from Air Jordan 19s the stadium just a few minutes after Wolken’s story was posted? And did one of sports’ most powerful movers and shakers reputed to be a confidant of everyone from Allen Iverson to Bill and Hillary Clinton really spend the night pacing Jordan 9 Retro around outside Lucas Oil stadium?
