His attempt at a comeback is over.

ESPN - Webber, battling chronic knee problems, to call it a career


    Time is apparently up on Chris Webber's basketball career.

    Sources close to Webber told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the 35-year-old has decided to retire from the game and end his comeback with the Golden State Warriors after more problems with a surgically repaired left knee that has plagued him for the past half-decade.

    Webber is expected to formally announce his plans Wednesday, sources said, less than two months after rejoining the franchise that unleashed him on the NBA as the first overall pick in the 1993 draft and the face most synonymous with Michigan's famed Fab Five team.


NBA enthusiasts will remember Webber for bringing the Kings out of total obscurity and bringing them within inches of the NBA Finals.

Hopefully, history remembers him for his time with Sacramento and not for calling the non-existent timeout that haunts Michigan basketball to this day.

My first thought after reading your subject line was "I hope he doesn't call another retirement. He's out."

I like to rag on him because I don't remember him doing much as his time as a Bullet.

Should have been to an NBA title. I still contend to this day that the Kings got screwed by the refs in those last two games of that series with the Lakers, especially in that Game 6 that should have settled the thing. (And believe me, that's no attempt to suck up to CRZ.)

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Agreed. I'd be willing to wager that outside of Los Angeles County, most/all of the basketball watching world agrees that the fix was in. Heck, even Ralph Nader got involved.

Unfortunately, it's not the non-existant TO, but him taking money from a booster named Ed Martin which haunts Michigan basketball to this day.

It has been a long time since I have looked forward to the NBA playoffs. Could be because the Raps are back in them for the first time in years. However, there are some great series to come for sure, even without them, especially in the West.
