Ray: Can you name an all-star five for the Kings from your years with the team, as well as an opponents’ all-star five? Gary Gerould: For the Kings, I have to include Mitch Richmond, Chris Webber and Peja Stojaković. I probably have to include DeMarcus Cousins. I know that is frontline-heavy and I have not done justice to guards. I thought about Reggie Theus; I thought about Mike Bibby; I thought about Kevin Martin. In view of the success that the Kings had in that eight season run where Bibby was involved, I would make him probably the fifth guy. So Richmond, Stojaković, Webber, Cousins, Bibby is the five that I would go with.
“Demarcus we know and have known who grant is,” said former Kings All-Star Chris Webber, who is now an NBA on TNT analyst. “The team knows as well. I’ve told them many times. They’ve seen it. They know who he is,” said Webber, adding two clown emojis. Webber did not respond to multiple interview requests. “I have not once in my 32 years in doing the Sacramento Kings had any individual from either the radio station or the Kings mention anything in any way, shape or form about me and my relations with minorities, with any other group of people,” Napear said. “That is an absolute disgrace that that would ever be said. That is an absolute disgrace.”
Douglas Christie: @boogiecousins you know @GrantNapearshow is grown and can speak for himself… you know how I feel so call the show 339.1140 I’m here for the conversation and to further movement!!! All love bruh🙏🏽👊🏽 #Respect DeMarcus Cousins: It’s all love to the fullest big bro🙏🏿 but I won’t be calling in to the show. I vowed fo never help that show. I am looking forward to the response though! Thanks. Chris Webber: Demarcus we know and have known who grant is. The team knows as well. I’ve told them many times. They’ve seen it. They know who he is.
Webber said he doesn’t worry about the Hall of Fame, and Rose agrees. “Webb shouldn’t spend a second worrying about that — it’s going to happen,” Rose said. “And also, it’s well deserved. And it’s the basketball Hall of Fame, so he’ll get in. He should get in solely on his impact with the Fab Five because the Fab Five should be in. If you just took his high school and his pro (career), he should be in.”
Storyline: Hall of Fame Selections
“No. 1, the NCAA doesn’t own (the) Fab Five — Isiah Thomas taught me this,” Rose said. “The same way the NBA doesn’t own (Detroit’s) Bad Boys, so if that was like ‘March Madness’ or ‘One Shining Moment,’ something that they owned, that’s something they would acknowledge and give love to. When you see highlights of teams going in and out of the commercials, they show teams that didn’t win the championship, so they could show us if they really wanted to. So that has to be a conscious decision, and that’s fine. It’ll happen, and it’s just like him going to the Hall of Fame; I believe it will happen.”
Of his many claims, many of which were spot on, Malone listed three fellow power forwards who had more God-given ability than he did, but didn’t quite reach the same level of play. “I’m going to tell you three guys that had more talent than Karl Malone — Chris Webber, Derrick Coleman and Charles Barkley,” Malone said. “More talent. More talent. But, they didn’t outwork me.” Malone began lifting weights during his time at Louisiana Tech. He was an NBA strongman and the use of weight training helped him stay healthy and on the court during his 19-season Hall of Fame career. “I would never use the term, ‘He was better than me,’” Malone explained. “More talented is different.”
Wilson: Sometimes, he’d just lose interest. And sometimes his losing interest was right there during the middle of the game. Cuban: We were playing the Kings, and Nellie had him guard Chris Webber and he was supposed to guard him, guard him. And (Rodman) would just point to him and say, “Shoot. You can’t make it.” And Chris kept on hitting the shots.
“I’ve had conversations with people and I think Webb is undoubtedly a Hall of Famer,” said Doug Christie, Webber’s teammate in Sacramento. “Period. That’s where I stand.” Webber has been eligible for induction since 2013, and after not being enshrined last year, he isn’t bothered by the situation. “The first few years I did, but I know I am one,” Webber told The Athletic last July. “That’s the way I’ve got to treat it and be thankful for the blessings I’ve got.”

“Webb was willing to sacrifice in a lot of ways and that allowed Peja (Stojakovic) to grow,” Christie said. “That allowed me to grow, that allowed Bobby (Jackson) to grow, that allowed Vlade to grow, with his unselfishness with the passing. “You’ve got (Arvydas) Sabonis, you’ve got Vlade, Webb is right there, and Bill Walton, when you talk about the greatest big men passers of all time. The touch on the passes, the creativity, the sight, the timeliness, also the unselfishness. Sometimes it’s a wide-open jump shot and he’d see somebody cutting by and he just hits them and they get a layup. It just keeps the game free. Also, his ability to communicate on the floor I thought was underrated.”
Although Garnett ultimately earned the qualifying ACT score he needed for college, he had already declared for the NBA Draft and solidified himself as a lottery pick by the time he got that result back. Fisher said Garnett stayed in touch through the spring and recalled seeing Garnett in Chicago shortly after the high school senior got his ACT results. Garnett told Fisher he would have come to Michigan if he had gotten a qualifying score sooner — and because he loved Chris Webber.
Chris Webber, then a member of Michigan’s “Fab Five,” was just 19 at the time. The 6-foot-10 big turned heads with his incredible talent, leaving a lasting impression on Chris Mullin. “I remember a year later in the draft, I remember sitting down with [then-Warriors coach Don Nelson],” Mullin recalled to Tom Haberstroh on the latest episode of NBC Sports’ “Habershow” podcast. “He had a few guys on the board — Shawn Bradley, Chris Webber and maybe Penny Hardaway. “He said, ‘what do you think?’ and I said, ‘All I know, is one day in San Diego, this guy Webber was the best player on the court, including (Larry) Bird.’ ”

You had a rivalry with Tim throughout your career, mostly because of the beast that was the Western Conference and the power forwards across the conference, including him, Rasheed Wallace and Chris Webber. How ironic is it now that you and Tim are going in together? Kevin Garnett: Yeah, man. In the sense of having a career, you never know how long it’s going to go. You don’t even know if you’re even going to have one. So to have one, and be pretty good at it and you can look back at accolades and won some things and most importantly, left your print on the game … Timmy, for me, him and Rasheed were always the pinnacle. They were always the more tougher matchup for me personally. Lot of times going into matchups, I had a lot of upside when I came in. I can say that these two were one of the difficult ones for me.
NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal participated in NBA TV segment “Start, Bench, Cut” in which he had to choose among three players which one to star, which to bench and which one to cut. One of the questions was about the 1990’s number one picks Tim Duncan (1997), Allen Iverson (1996) and Chris Webber (1993). Shaq picked AI to start, Chris Webber to bench and Tim Duncan to cut. “Fundamental is one of those players he’s got a lot but he has a lot of bodyguards too. C-Webb didn’t have a lot of bodyguards. Imagine Tim on a regular team. Would he be Tim? C-Webb has some s—. Imagine if you put C Webb on that Spurs team tell me what you got,” he explained his choices.

Jalen Rose, Chris Webber to end their feud?

Rose said he is in contact with Webber, and there will be plans to privately settle their differences. The relationship began defrosting after Fab Five member Juwan Howard was named head coach at Michigan last summer. “We’re in contact currently and we’re brothers,” Rose said of Webber. “So I always feel like anything that we need to say needs to be face to face, eyeball to eyeball, without any distractions, without any hype, without any camera. That’s the big-boy way to do that. That’s my brother.”

In addition to Bryant, Duncan, Garnett and Bosh, other players nominated for the first time this year include Shawn Marion, Michael Finley, Mark Eaton and Buck Williams. Meanwhile, Chauncey Billups, Mark Jackson, Tim Hardaway, Richard Hamilton, Chris Webber, Ben Wallace and Marcus Camby are among those on the ballot who have been nominated multiple times.
I hate to bring up Chris Webber because I feel like everyone asks you about him, but you had said that him serving as the honorary captain of Michigan’s Nov. 3 football game against Penn State was huge in terms of being an icebreaker and repairing his relationship with the school. By all accounts, it seems like it went well. From your standpoint, has there been progress since then? Jalen Rose: Can you put in bold letters: I asked him this. (Laughs) What always ends up happening is people get it confused and think I’m unhappy with my life and I just want to talk about him.

I’ll make it clear that you didn’t go on an unprompted rant about Chris Webber. Jalen Rose: Alright! Here’s the thing: We’ve gone through a lot together. We grew up together. I consider him like a brother. I was happy for him and happy for the university that he got a chance to go back on campus and be celebrated by the football program and be the honorary captain. I think it was long overdue, by both sides. Now, hopefully the next step is for the university to properly acknowledge our group and what we were able to accomplish on campus.

Two years ago, Divac made a deal with New Orleans Pelicans general manager Dell Demps, putting his job and his reputation on the line with a trade that sent DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans and brought Hield to Sacramento. Well, Demps was fired on Friday while people in Charlotte were praising Divac. “Vlade has believed in these guys, especially Fox and Buddy, telling me a long time ago they were going to change the trajectory of the team,” Webber said. “The great part about it as a Sacramento fan is, I know Vlade, he doesn’t just work for the organization, but he is a fan of the city. He wants it to be great, not only on the court but in the community as well. “And, yeah, he’s going to (turn) it around. He already has. He said, ‘Give me two years.’ He’s done that. Just wait till we give him a little bit more time.”

Among the other notable nominees: Sloan’s old friend Johnny “Red” Kerr, Del Harris, Curt Gowdy, Marv Albert, Jim Valvano, Billy Packer, Vlade Divac, Toni Kukoc, the 1936 U.S. Olympic team, Chris Webber, Tim Hardaway, Rip Hamilton, Dale Ellis, Marcus Camby, Muggsy Bogues, Chauncey Billups, Mark Aguirre, Jack Sikma, Ben Wallace, Sidney Moncrief, Bobby Jones, Kevin Johnson, Rudy Tomjanovich, George Karl, Bob Huggins, Cotton Fitzsimmons, Bill Fitch, Rick Adelman, Rollie Massimino and Gene Keady.
Richard Jefferson’s focus has shifted. When he talks about working on his efficiency, he means the ability to communicate clearly in short soundbites with a slow, easy cadence. “I watch games now with a completely different mindset,” Jefferson told CBS Sports. “I don’t necessarily always watch basketball games to see what’s going on with the basketball game. I watch basketball games to listen to how Mark Jackson speaks or Reggie Miller or Chris Webber. What can I take from them? Listening to their timing, figuring out what I would say and how I would say it in those moments. Very similar to a kid who’s watching his favorite basketball player and then going out in the park and trying to emulate that move.”
Polite and smiling Monday morning, Kings legend Chris Webber made a quick jab at the current state of the NBA while commending the current Sacramento squad and community at large. “Very honestly, it’s Golden State (Warriors) the next two years anyway,” Webber said. “So anyone that’s upset, trying to make the Kings win a championship this year, it’s probably not the smartest idea if you like long, sustained winning like the Sacramento area does.”
After a 10-year hiatus that ended in 2013, Webber has maintained his distance from UM, which had to remove the Final Four banners from appearances in the Final Four in 1992 and ’93. Webber is expected to be an honorary captain for Michigan’s football showdown against Penn State on Nov. 3 at Michigan Stadium. That could be a significant bridge to Webber reconnecting with U-M and building a better relationship between the sides.
Rose has been the main catalyst among the players, trying to get some resolution to the issues from both sides. He sees Webber’s return to UM as a move in the right direction. “Nov. 3 is a huge date as an icebreaker once he goes to campus and he’s celebrated by the fans and he gets a chance to be welcomed by Jim Harbaugh,” Rose said Monday at a fundraiser at the Detroit Golf Club for his Jalen Rose Leadership Academy. “That’s going to be a catalyst for what could happen going forward.”
