Chris Webber should be the only sports analyst.

And, why the hell not? C-Webb’s not one of the better NBA rappers, but he did get Kurupt to feature on this song. It’s “Gangsta Gangsta,” which is not a cover of the N.W.A. classic, but it does name-check both Jalen Rose and Jerome Bettis. If you weren’t paying attention in the month before Super Bowl XL, let me remind you: Jerome Bettis is from Detroit

Fun fact: Chris Webber’s real first name is “Mayce.” Unfortunately, there would be no Mayce-Ma$e collaboration, as Ma$e had retired from the rap game to become a pastor by the time C-Webb was recording “2 Much Drama”. For years, this is what Hedo Turkoglu thought real hip-hop was, and it inspired his own never-released rap single “Young Turk (Hard-Nosed Playa)”.

This video is also the reason that Doug Christie’s wife became so overprotective of him: if she turned her  back for even a second, Doug would be dancing with girls in business suits and throwing invisible dice in Chris Webber’s weirdly large entryway.

Used copies of 2 Much Drama are available for $0.01 on Amazon. Act fast! There are only 21 copies left!

BALL SO HARD

BALL SO HARD

Kendrick Perkins doesn’t care much for Chris Webber’s ring-less opinions. 
EDIT: Here’s what CWebb said about Perk: http://youtu.be/s4qvrNJoQwc starting at 1:35.
EDIT numero dos: I guess that video,which was from a month ago, was the first shot C-Webb took at Perk. The second came tonight, when Chris called Perk an overrated post-defender. I’d like to thank James Herbert from HoopSpeak for the heads up. 
In short, Webber doesn’t think Perk is a good fit in OKC and it’s because in Webb’s personal opinion he doesn’t think Kendrick is a good 1-on-1 defender. That’s one I as well as most writers don’t share. 
I know last year I wrote that Ainge made the right move in moving Perkins, but it had more to do with how much impact he could have on that season and questions surrounding his free agency. Boston had to win now, not build for the future. Perkins is a center you lock up for the future and OKC was both blessed and smart enough to do so.

Tonight may be sadly the last home game for the Sacramento Kings. As we all know the Maloofs, owners of the team plan on moving the franchise to Anaheim, California. 

Let’s take a trip down memory lane and the team’s glory days.

Sacramento Kings - The Greatest Show On Court

Dear Chris,
I have been thinking of you a lot since I sat glued to the tv during the championship game.
I know that there may be nothing I or anyone else can say to ease the pain and disappointment of what happened.
Still, for whatever it’s worth, you, and your team, were terrific. And part of playing for high stakes under great pressure is the constant risk of mental error. I know I have lost two political races and made countless mistakes over the last twenty years. What matters is the intensity, integrity, and courage you bring to the effort. That is certainly what you have done. You can always regret what occurred but don’t let it get you down or take away the satisfaction of what you have accomplished.
You have a great future. Hang in there.
Sincerely,
Bill Clinton

…And what about the scene when they give the interview before the first Duke game, and Chris and Jalen can barely keep their generic answers together, then Juwan butts in and starts talking like a serial killer about how the Duke game ain’t about youth vs. experience ‘cause they got some experience too– playing public school ball North Texas, south side Chicago, Detroit. So we think it’s going to be an “exciting game” – throw up our 5’s, rep Michigan – and oh by the way don’t call us ”The Fabulous 5”; we want to be called ”Young Gunz.”

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: ESPN2 is re-airing the now instant classic documentary on Michigan’s Fab Five. This is as good as it gets for a basketball fan.

Chris Webber has transformed into one of the best NBA Analysts on the planet. Last night, he brought the heat on The Heat. 

Having played way too many sports myself, I can tell you that Chris Webber is spot on here. Miami needs to shut up and play. Win or lose, just shut up and play basketball. Don’t get back to us until you got something to real to talk about. Like a championship.

Chris Webber seems to have his arms up in an inordinate number of basketball card photos. (Finally, he puts them down to play some defense on the bottom left). 
More vintage cards here.

Hat Tip to BDL

I think Bynum’s knee is the biggest situation because I think that can change the series. If Bynum’s not healthy, you know, the Celtics have the advantage inside. If Bynum’s healthy, the Lakers have the advantage inside because those big guys can bang (PAUSE), they’ll rebound, they’ll control the boards, they’ll block some shots…If he can move better that will be a plus for the Lakers.

Chris Webber with some hip-hop NBA analysis, comparing the LA Lakers with Raekwon’s “Surgical Gloves”.

Ed. Note: part of me wants to believe the video for "Surgical Gloves" is shot in some cinéma vérité viral video style to convey Rae and his crew are really robbing a bank but the other part thinks it’s just a really low-budget music video.
