One of just six players (Bird, Wilt, Billy Cunningham, KG and Elgin Baylor) in the history of the NBA to average 20, 9 and 4. All but he and Garnett are in the Hall of Fame.
One of the most talented power forwards of all time has decided to hang up his kicks. I just got word from my peoples on this so, I’ll have more later. I think it was apropos his career came full circle and he’s going out as a Warrior. Although I’ve interviewed him personally in the past, my only regret is I didn’t get to interview him in a locker room setting. Yeah it’s selfish, but so what. Appreciate what he has given the game over the course of his career instead of what the media tells you. Even though it was a huge moment in sports history, one must not judge the timeout as the defining moment of his very stellar and IMO Hall of Fame career. Chris Webber is a winner–period. He will be referenced long after all of us are gone because of the Fab Five…for they changed the game.
Much love Chris. Thanks for the memories dawg. See you in July.
