In spite of his talent, Chris Webber has yet to lead a team to an NBA ring. At age 34, and with the 2003 injury that took most of his athleticism, the closest he has been to a title was in 2002, when the Lakers defeated the Kings in a controversial Western Conference Finals in seven games. Injury plagued and seemingly always on the wrong side of luck, Webber has been considered by some to be "cursed" and his inability to win the big games have been prevalent since his final game at Michigan.
However, Webber has always put up solid numbers (he averages 20.9 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 4.3 assists for his whole career.) and will likely be a strong candidate for the Hall of Fame after his career is over. He is widely regarded as perhaps the greatest passing power forward of all time and has generally made the teams he played for better. The Golden State Warriors did not make the playoffs during the first 12 years after they traded Webber, and Webber led Washington to their first playoffs since 1989 in 1997. They would not reach the playoffs again until 2005, 7 years after trading Webber. Prior to Webber's arrival in 1998, the Kings made the playoffs only twice (1985 and 1996) since they moved to Sacramento from Kansas City in 1985.
