Chris Webber

No matter what Chris Webber achieved in the world of Basketball, he will always be remembered for that time out he called (that they didn’t have) that sealed the fate of the Michigan Wolverines in the 1993 National Championship Game.  As much as that stuck with him, we will remember how he led the “Fab Five” to the most popular (and influential) collegiate basketball program of all time.

“C-Webb” would not win a title in the NBA either (though many have said that his Sacramento Kings were robbed of the opportunity by refs against the Lakers in the Western Finals in 2002) but he would become a top star in the NBA, especially at the turn of the millennium.  In five consecutive seasons, Webber was selected to an All NBA Team and was the reason Sacramento was as competitive as they were.   He is one of the few players with a PER career over 20; a plateau that is littered with Hall of Famers, and was one of the top Power Forwards of his day.  Judging Chris Webber on that blown time out is unfair to what was an outstanding and Hall of Fame worthy career.

  • 38. Lou Reed
