One of the least expected reunions in League history has pretty much become official: Chris Webber is a Golden State Warrior again. The team that drafted him first in the ’93 draft will announce that he has signed for the veteran’s minimum of $1.2 Million today, and is set to rejoin his former nemesis, coach Don Nelson.
With Golden State not scheduled to practice again before Friday’s home game against the Bobcats and ex-Warriors guard Jason Richardson – and a five-day break immediately following – Webber’s debut is likely to come during a nationally televised game against Chicago on Feb. 7.
Of course, this will be nothing like C-Webb’s first stint in a Warriors uniform. For instance, Nike will not be making commercials about him going behind the back before cramming on iconic power forwards’ heads.
If the soon-to-be 35 year old can keep his creaky joints from exploding, grab a few boards, find cutters with his celebrated passing ability, and hit a shot or two come Playoff time, it’ll be considered a rousing success.
