Chris Webber praises and congratulates Beilein and team on championship.

Former Michigan basketball player Chris Webber was on the Rich Eisen show a few days ago and to my surprise, he congratulated and praised Beilein and the team. I know he doesn't have the best relationship with the univeristy, Jalen and even some of the fans, but I'm glad to know he still watches from afar. I'm personally a big C-Webb fan, as I know there are many out there who still are as well. Just nice to see him acknowledge coach and the team publicly. Also, gives his insight on the NBA, college basketball and how we can possibly fix the issues it currently has. Good listen overall.

Title almost says it all. Chris Webber and Rudy Tomjanovich are among the 10 men's finalists for the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. They're both first-time finalists, with Webber in the player category, and Tomjanovich in the coaching category

Tomjanovich and Webber will learn whether they'll enter the Hall of Fame on Monday, April 3 at a press conference in Phoenix prior to the NCAA Men's Championship game. A finalist needs 18 of 24 votes from the Honors Committee for election into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Two weekends ago I was helping out my dad cleaning out the basement and I found this Mall Poster and Ad with Michigan and Chris Webber from 1995. Nike did an series of ads for schools Like Michigan,UNC and others. This one was at the Footlocker at Belmont Mall in Detroit back in 1995. My brother worked there and he gave that to me one half of my birthday gift.

Title says it all. Discuss. 

PS. It would be great if this didn't become another discussion about how everyone feels about Webber's current relationship with Michigan but I know that is unlikely.

Edit:

The quick and easy version: 

Pros

-maybe the greatest passing big man ever

-played with style

-numbers say he belongs

-if the refs didn't rob him of a 2002 championship he is a lock

Cons

-very short prime

-no championships

-shrank a bit in the playoffs

-may have been a lazy defender/rebounder and was somewhatbonehead  mistake prone

Charles Woodson on the Rich Eisen podcast

Charles Woodson appeared on the Rich Eisen podcast this week. Pretty cool listen where Charles reflects on his NFL career. You can tell how much Rich loves Woodson in his post-interview exchange with his co-hosts.

Michigan related items: Rich reminisces about some various Michigan related memories like the 1997 National Championship season and how he experienced the Kordell Stewart Hail Mary. He talks to Charles about Tom Brady, the Tuck Rule play, Lloyd Carr, and even a "you can't have one without the other" mention. Charles also comments on Chris Webber and the end of his disassociation with Michigan.

An Open Letter to Chris Webber

An Open Letter to Chris Webber

Submitted by Michigan Eaglet on April 4th, 2013 at 12:43 AM

I know this is a polarizing topic to many within this fanbase, but I came across this letter written by a professor at Michigan titled "An Open Letter to Chris Webber: You are loved."

In it he discusses a possible way for him to reconcile with the past and his influence on the freshman currently on the roster. He actually teaches a class with all five of the freshman in it so he has some real perspective on the topic. I know many people have their minds made up on the issue of whether or not the Fab Five should be honored, but in light of the Final Four this weekend, I thought it might foster a good discussion on the board about taking a realistic approach on how to deal with the past properly. If you don't think Chris Webber should ever be allowed on campus, you're entitled to that opinion, but the ban ends in May and sooner or later something will probably happen involving the Fab Five, and Chris Webber will probably be one of the main driving forces behind how good or bad the results end up being for him, the Fab Five and the university as well.

A couple years ago we saw an amazing 30 for 30 about the Fab 5, but one persepctive was missing — Chris Webber's. Soon we'll finally (we hope, at least) get his side of the story when he releases his autobiograhy.

Although I'm sure he'll also write about other things, I think it's fair to say MGoBlog Nation will skip straight to the Michigan years.
 

I profiled Chris Webber in last week's Sports Illustrated -- he's become one of the more interesting NBA voices as a studio and game analyst for NBA TV and TNT -- and during our conversation he told me that he's been working on a documentary about his life for the past six years. Webber said he plans to release both the documentary and an autobiography at some point next year and the working (but unlikely final) title is The Black Forrest Gump.
