Karl Malone: “I love Chris Webber but this was one time where I wanted to kick his ass. Right? So we had been wearing them out – at home – and Chris Webber started at half court looking for John Stockton. On the flip side, I say ‘Good on you Chris for studying the playbook. And we ran that four up and he didn’t even care. He hit Stockton right in the sternum with his elbow. I damn near felt it and [it] hurt. …I felt so bad I went over to Coach [Jerry] Sloan and I said, ‘Coach, don’t run that again, please.’ Stock[ton] looked at me and said ‘No, I’m good’ and the next play– well, you know.”
Front-office executives and scouts love his potential. One NBA scout told The Undefeated that Wiseman is “a combination of David Robinson and Chris Bosh.” One NBA general manager said that the 19-year-old reminds him of Chris Webber. Wiseman, however, is focused on being himself. “I mean, it’s high praise, but I just want to create my own thing, be my own player,” he said. “I’m James Wiseman, I’m myself, I’m authentic. So, I’m just going to go in there again, grow, and adapt and stay humble and work my tail off every day.”

GQ: When the Milwaukee Bucks decided not to play in their first-round game against the Orlando Magic, you gave a powerful monologue about marginalized communities in this country. What were you thinking before you started to speak? Chris Webber: I have to thank Turner for the opportunity because the way that it happened, we really have great relationships at work and the producer called me and he said ‘hey I know you’re passionate about this, do you want to say something here?’ I was getting ready for the game and I didn’t know there was a stoppage. I said yeah. He said ‘you’ve gotta get here in 15 minutes’. I was like there’s no way possible. I just got out of the shower, so that’s probably why I was sweating crazy on the show, but I’m thankful that he asked me. I ran over there.
