    I saw CWebb in Barcelona during the 76ers 2006 Europe Live Tour. He was with Sammy Dalembert. He was so cool and took the time for a photo-op. I'll never forget that day. Later on we met Iggy near the Hard Rock Café. Well deserving CWebb!

    CWebb should have been in the hall 10 years ago. The league was frontin' on him heavy. He's more than just a basketball player but a historian & student of Black history. Respect to Mr. Webber.

We as a society have to take more responsibility of taking care of not just our children, but all children. So that we can have more men and women making beautiful speeches such as this one. And less about negative events.

    Great speech but we all know webber took money from ed martin. Just because a person come from our home town or is our friend don't mean we forget. I don't think it was a big deal if somebody loaned him money but the NCAA feels like it is and now players can make money off themselves and it should've been this way

    A blessed day to you brothers and sisters( we are ALL called to be brothers and sisters in Christ) .. I hope that you are all having a most wonderful day. 🙂 Over the years, I have enjoyed watching Chris Webber, Paul Pierce,, Kobe, Lebron, KD, Magic, Kareem, Steph. and etc.. etc.. etc.. It seems like such an honour for those great players and more, who have made it already, into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.. However, at this time, I am led to say, (especially to us Christians) I hope that as much as we enjoy watching the great players and the great game of basketball. I hope that we are PUTTING GOD FIRST overall in our lives. I hope that we all will read and have been reading the Bible, that we will pray, serve, fast, meditate on God's word, love, give, do and etc.. I do not see anything in the Bible, forbidding us from watching basketball in itself. I believe we can actually, learn lessons that can help us in our Christian walk. Ex..Teamwork, discipline, sacrifice, knowing our roles and etc..etc.. However, it can be problematic if we know more about about trades, teams, coaches, stats, the game in general..and etc.. etc.. than we do about the Bible, prayer, fasting, meditating on God's word, How to walk in the Spirit, how to mature in Christ, serve God and people, and etc... etc..etc..etc.... AND to the LOVED and CALLED TO CHRIST "unbeliever" (at this time)..Simply, God and Jesus Christ LOVES YOU and HAS A SPECIAL PLAN FOR YOU! I hope that you join our family in Christ, and discover your true identity as soon as possible! 🙂 The Lord Jesus gave himself for us, ( HE DIED FOR US 🙂) He lived a SINLESS LIFE and HOLY life...He walked on this earth, loving and blessing people. Healing the sick, giving the deaf hearing, the blind sight, doing miracles...and so so many, many more WONDERFUL, things... However, their was some that envied him, they killed him, he was buried, but GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD🙂🙂... And he IS ALIVE FOREVERMORE!!🙂🙂...and he is at the RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER IN HEAVEN...Also, Praise God, AMAZINGLY, his Spirit also LIVES in US!🙂
    The Lord (Jesus) chose give to up his life, to take away our sin and defeat death! So we can have LIFE!🙂 (WE ARE ALL BORN SINNERS, we inherited it in our flesh from our oldest ancestor Adam, who ate the forbidden fruit.) So I hope that you will choose LIFE! Choose JESUS!🙂 Yes, please, I encourage you, find as much you can/ need to about the KING OF KINGS and the LORD OF LORDS!
    The Bible says: JOHN 3:16 (KJV)
    16 For God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE... the Bible also says: ROMANS 10:9-10 (KJV)
    That if you confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt BELIEVE in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made into SALVATION...So FAMILY, Christian and non Christian, (at this time) I encourage you, like as seemingly some of the NBA players are preparing for the upcoming season, Lord willing. Let us prepare and wait for OUR LORD'S COMING! 🙂🙂.. HE IS COMING BACK! SO LET GET READY and BE READY for WHENEVER HE COMES! Peace and love to all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! 🙂

    Isaiah Thomas once said getting into the hall of fame is kinda like when you die and hope you get into heaven. I don't like his analogy, but I get his drift. Well, I wanna say that as great as it may seem to get into the hall of fame, please make sure you give your heart to Jesus and be born again,...because you do not want to miss heaven. If people are so happy to get into the hall of fame, then you have no idea the joy and the thrill of getting into heaven and being with Jesus forever. Repent and be born again, receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior and live a HOLY LIFE UNTO THE LORD!!!
