C-Webb on the Comeback Trail

Webber says he’ll be back in two weeks. Hopefully Mitch Kupchak is reading this.

    Please don’t.

    Isiah has just offered him $20mil for the rest of the season not including the playoffs(bah!)

    if he does that Izzo, he might as well pick up the rest of the Fab Three(+2). Just like him, they played well in MI.

    Myles – We have an open roster spot, and Webber seems capable of giving us 15 minutes a night of passing and 18 foot jumpers. Even knowing that he can’t move, particularly on D, why not?

    I remember the first time I read this story, in 2002…

    I just haven’t seen him play in so long that it’s hard to imagine a resurgence, or even him maintaining the mediocre level of play he gave before. I do like his passing, though his J is suspect, especially since he relies almost solely on it these days. But whats particularly troubling is that he doesnt compensate for what was lost, namely post defense and easy buckets. I think hed be a decent short term fit, but what happens when Drew comes back? Webbers still gonna want his minutes and I dont know if Id want to waste time incorporating someone who wont be needed as much in the playoffs. But as usual, I could be wrong…

    Chris Webber’s the worst kind of professional athlete–a one-time superstar on the steep decline who still believes he should be treated (and played) as the player he always was. Wouldn’t touch him with a 27-foot pole.

    Also C-Webb will only play home games for the rest of the season(alla Roger Clemens) including playoffs.

    Who jumps slower, Chris Webber or Kwame Brown?

    I have a tough time keeping the team allegiances of the slam guys in line. Russ – you’re a Bulls fan, correct? And you still wouldn’t want Webber?

  • james

    I still believe he is better than Kwame and lakers could use him until Bynum comes back

    I am a Bulls fan, correct, and I wouldn’t want Webber, correct. Webber doesn’t bring enough talent to the table anymore to make up for his negatives. Joe Smith has been a pleasant surprise, and if Ben Wallace’s minutes are going to decrease (please God!), I’d rather see them go to Joakim, Tyrus and Aaron. Wallace aside, the Bulls are a young team who still have a chance to do something someday (or so I keep telling myself) if they make some big, bold moves. Webber is a Band-Aid when they should be looking into major surgery (no Nene).

    they should have got pau

    You know how many players from the 1993 Draft are still in the L: TWO. Lindsey Hunter (10) and Sam Cassell (24). (Unless Rodney Rogers is still on someone’s roster and I just haven’t noticed.)

    I would take weeber on the Lakers anyday over Krumie brown the guy sucks.

    i think Webber should join the boston celtics. Webber, Peirce and Garnett in the front court would be enough of a Big 3 to win the championship and with Ray Allen and Rajon, each player complements each other. Detroit shouldnt even be an option again for Chris because Flip cant get past the Eastern Conference Finals. San Antonio would be something to consider for Chris, but maybe not the Lakers. They still wont contend for another two years. And what about Earl Boykins?
