Bonzi is a rarity, what I like to call an "Amplifier."
on a good team, he's very good. doesn't complain. shoots a phenominal percentage. passes well, rebounds well, defends well. drives the baseline for monster dunks. start him or have him coming off the bench, he won't complain because he knows eventually you are going to start him. he may say a few things you wish he hadn't, but you shrug and live with it.
on a bad team, he's very bad. shoots a lousy percentage. disrupts chemistry. defends only half the time. floats to the perimeter and lofts terrible jumpers. rebounding tapers. arguments flare. statements which you once would blow off now seem yet another indicator of how rotten he is.
you can count on him being an excellent acquisition for Memphis, at least until he gets a little too comfortable. at that point, if Memphis is doing well, he'll still be great. if they do poorly, Wesley Person and a draft pick will look pretty damned nice.
