Pick Analysis. PF. (1998-05). Chris Webber. 8. player. 84. Scouting Report

Arguably the most legendary King of the Sacramento era is Chris Webber. A member of the ‘Fab Five’ at the University of Michigan, Webber was selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 1993 NBA Draft by the Orlando Magic. He never played for Orlando, as they traded him to the Golden State Warriors for Penny Hardaway and three first-round picks.

After winning NBA Rookie of the Year, Webber forced his way out of Golden State and ended up with the then-Washington Bullets, who would go on to trade him to Sacramento for Mitch Richmond and Otis Thorpe in 1998. He would go on to make history with the Kings.

Webber averaged 20 points per game in his first season with Sacramento but would make a jump in year two with the club. In the 1999-00 NBA season, Webber averaged 24.5 points per game and earned his first NBA All-Star appearance with the Kings and second overall.

He would earn NBA All-Star honors the next three seasons, making that four in total with the Kings. During that span, his highest points-per-game average was a massive 27.1 in 2000-01, the same season in which he dropped 51 points against the Indiana Pacers.

Webber was extremely influential for the Kings during his tenure, helping them go from a bottom feeder to a team that should have made an NBA Finals appearance. Nonetheless, Webber’s 23.5 points per game in his seven seasons with the Kings was invaluable for the club and that mark is third all-time in franchise history.

His 8,843 points with the Kings do not rank in the top 10 but are an impressive total in its own right. Overall, Webber is easily one of the greatest scorers in club history.
