It’s as if the C-Webb Signing Never Happened

The Golden State Warriors signed up Chris Webber in an effort to shore up their interior passing, and hoped he would bring some veteran leadership as the team scratched and clawed its way towards the postseason.

Webber, for his part, has delivered on none of the above. And now, it sounds as if the team doesn’t even want him back when he returns from injury.

With Chris Webber (sore left knee) missing his eighth straight game tonight and still nowhere near healthy, even Nelson is saying that Webber might not have a role on the team when – and if – he returns.

“It’s get more difficult the longer we go,” Nelson said. “We’re down the stretch drive now. We’ll probably have to play the way we’ve been playing.”

Picture C-Webb in a pool somewhere, taking a break from rehabbing his knee and reading that. Talk about depressing.

G-State continues to hold down the eighth and final Playoff spot, with Denver 1 1/2 games back.
