    Should Chris Webber be in the HALL of FAME?

    One of only 5 guys to average 20/9/4 for his career.

    Would've won a title if not for "THE straight-on 3" by Robert Horry (game 4 playoffs, down 2-1).

    Personally I never liked the guy (partly because I'm a Lakers fan) but I have respect for him as a player.

    He was defiantly one of my favorite players back in the day. He did always play great and I think he deserves to be considered. No one will remember him for his great days, instead they will remember him when he blew out his knee and played for the sixers.

    Chris Webber is one of the best passing big men ever. Before his knee injury he had great athleticism and talent. He was great in the low post, the open floor, and could hit the mid range shot. After he got hurt it was his defense that suffered the most so most people don't remember that he was a good defender as well. Look at his numbers while he was with the Kings before his knee injury.

    1998: 19.98 ppg 12.98 rpb 4.12 asst 2.12 blk 48% fg 45% ft (terrible I know)
    1999: 24.45 ppg 10.49 rpb 4.60 asst 1.71 blk 48% fg 75% ft (up 30%)
    2000: 27.11 ppg 11.10 rpg 4.20 asst 1.33 blk 48% fg 70% ft
    2001: 24.48 ppg 10.11 rpg 4.78 asst 1.41 blk 49% fg 75% ft
    2002: 23.01 ppg 10.51 rpg 5.43 asst 1.31 blk 46% fg 61% ft

    Even in 2005 when he was playing on basicially one leg with the Sixers....
    2005: 20.24 ppg 9.88 rpg 3.41 asst .83 blk 43% fg 64% ft

    His FG% was way down that year because he had turned into mostly a mid range shooter since he could barely run. His blocks went way down because he could not move well laterally at all. But still, playing on one good leg, he averaged 20 and 10. Pretty incredible.

    All people remember now is Webber hobbling around the court shooting mid range jumpers. He used to run the floor and dunk on guys like Charles Barkley.

    He's going in. He has the numbers and played well, when he actually played.

    Me personally, I don't think of Webber as a "great" player. But he's going in.

    Webber is definitely going into the HOF. This shouldnt even be debated IMO.

    One highlight does not a player make. Webber is not on the level of Barkley nor is he someone that actually played the game as aggressively as that highlight might mislead you to think he did.

    There have been better players who are more deserving than Chris Webber.

    Dennis Johnson, Artis Gilmore.

    Yeah I know that my point was that people's view of Webber is based on only the last few years of his career. Post-Injury. People need to remember that he was once very athletic and one of the most talented big men in the league. he used to be at Garnett's level.
