“Houston is the most disappointing team that we have in the league, more disappointing than the Philadelphia 76ers, and I don’t know if anybody can thrive in that system,” Webber said. “I definitely know it’s tough to age when the system does not include your age in the system. “If I’m [Howard], I’m trying to offensive rebound a little bit more. If I’m him, I’m running right down the middle of the lane on a secondary break, posting up in the middle, and turning for a jump hook because you’re going to foul me. I’m going to put myself in positions where you have to get me the ball, and when I get the ball I’d be stupid to pass it back out. There’s ways, and he’s one of the best big men in the game still. He should be the second-most-targeted player on that team.”
To this stage, Wade’s performance has been closer this season to Duncan than Bryant, Wednesday notwithstanding, with the Heat’s performance in the standings closer to the Spurs than the Lakers. “So if you afford Dwyane Wade that,” Webber said of an ongoing support system, “I don’t care how old he is. He is going to get to the free-throw line. He’s going to knock down the shot off of a pump fake, and the Euro-step and is going to walk into a three.”

As Gottlieb tried to explain the reason for asking the question about Webber’s former Michigan teammate Jalen Rose, Webber cut him off talking about what he wanted to talk about on the show and more about his course at Wake Forest. From CBSSportsRadio.com: “I mean, Doug, we ain’t talking about that,” Webber said. “You ain’t getting that interview. I’m talking about Wake Forest. I don’t talk about him. I talked about him one time on The Dan Patrick Show. That was it.” “Come on, Doug,” Webber said, annoyed. “I just told you respectfully on your show I’m not going to talk about it. I’m talking about being a professor at Wake Forest teaching a class on culture in sports. Now do want want to beat me up because I did not answer you on your show?”

Not at all, Gottlieb said. “I don’t want to answer the question,” Webber reiterated. “So what would you ask me after that? Because I’m going to put this in for my class as far as how did you handle the media. I’m going to show them right now: I do not want to answer that question. I respectfully ask you not to ask me that again so you can blow your numbers up for your show. I don’t want to talk about that, Doug.”

Professor Webber will teach a course on sports, race and society as part of the university’s Documentary Film Program. “I’m excited to bring real-life experience to the program. Sports are my passion and telling stories about sports is my new career,” Webber said in Wake Forest’s press release announcing the program. “I’ve been involved with the NBA for nearly 25 years, and I understand firsthand how sports, business, race, gender and economics mesh.”
