Chris Webber: From 18 months at Michigan, from the period of calling the timeout, which was the worst period. It was April, and within almost 50 days, you have to deal with the mistake you made, forget yourself, then prepare for the next level. I was happy with the focus that I had, I didn’t get caught up. I didn’t use anything as an excuse not to succeed that next year. So it goes straight to for me was a success. It was an honor. I didn’t want to leave Golden State, but my contract had an out after the first year. That was great for me financially. But it’s not necessarily what Nelly appreciated. (Webber signed a 15-year, $74 million deal as a rookie but had a player option on his contract for the second season, which he exercised to become a free agent.)

Tim Hardaway (5x NBA All-Star): I was there for about a week. We played every day. You had Chris Mullin, Rod Strickland out there. Gary Payton, of course. Reggie, Pat, Charles [Barkley]. Charles needed it because you know, he’s always getting heavy during the course of the summer. He really needed to be in shape and ready to go. He loved it. Charles would be going at people. We had to go double team him because basically when he got it down low, nobody could stop him. If you didn’t want to lose, you had to go down there and double team.
