Chris Webber in Golden State – Swan Song Sounds More like a Choking Crow

Posted by

True, the Warriors does not have a strong frontcourt. In every game played, they are being outrebounded by their stronger and bigger rivals.

The Warriors need another huge man to play together with AndrisBiedrins. Until Brandon Wright plays to his full potential there will remain a gaping hole in the Warrior’s roster. The front court dominated Western Conference teams might exploit that weakness in the Warriors.

With the recent signing in of Chris Webber, this rebounding problem might not be resolved. The Warriors is a team that is fast, young and fiery. They like to gun and run eventually outscoring their rivals. Chris Webber is the exact opposite of the team. He is old, slow and lackluster. Though he is a big guy who could catch a rebound from time to time. But if you followed his games in the previous seasons, he is a perimeter player. With youth comes explosive and speedy moves to the basket. On the other hand, old age comes with lethargic and telegraphed moves. Right now, Weber slowly settles for the outside shot rather than dunking the hoops. What the Warriors need right now is a Shawn Marion type. Chris Webber is definitely not like that.

Another reason why Webber will never be the solution is that Nellie and he don’t get along. The Warriors is a team driven by synergy and camaraderie. If Webber messes that up, the Warriors will go back to their losing ways.

However, the point is moot because the Warriors already signed Webber into the team with a $1.2 million deal. It’s money down the drain. In the future, Nellie has to keep an eye on Webber. Speaking as a fan, I would rather waste $1.2 million and not let Webber play than waste $1.2 million and drag the team down. Losing a season is not an option. Whether you like it or not, Webber is now a Warrior this season.
