The historical significance of CWebb

I always had a soft spot for Chris Webber—I can’t help but like the guy, and I wish he could have gotten some kind of title. So much potential, so many flashes of brilliance. But never the unadulterated success.

I followed his career from high school. He was the best player (though not my favorite player) on the team that helped me fall in love with basketball. That counts for a lot on a personal level.

Could he coach some day? I don’t know.

Should he make the hall of fame? No.

    Cwebb’s numbers make him a borderline HOFer, but I would say he comes up just short. If he had had a couple more injury free years then he’d have a much better shot. But really from the time he left Sacto, he was never really a top player.

    Also,

    At least no videos exist of cwebb doing this

    people forget how good that sacto team was. but not good enough. story of the dude’s career.

    that knicks team is historically bad. because they’re the knicks. they’re not the 2003 detroit tigers or anything, but to have a team so bad at MSG in the center of the basketball universe.
