Yerfatma, I was thinking it, but you was a posting it. I thought it was pretty cool that he thought the team was playing well and had good chemistry without him. That combined with the fact that he just couldn't seem to bring himself to go through the rigors of rehab make this a smart move in my opinion.

You gotta respect his decision. Some athletes just can't let go.

A good time for him to hang it up. I remember back in '89, and '90 when my high school alma mater was @ Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor for the Michigan High School Basketball Final Four Tourney, Detroit Country Day played their game before ours, and watching C-Webb run the floor, play after play taking it to the rack. I will never forget that day....

He's got sick career numbers. Strange how I don't really consider him an all-time great despite essentially being a 20-10-5 guy for his career.

All I been hearing on ESPN since C-Webb's retirement is if he's all Hall of Famer. Now, this is just my opinion but if you take a look at his career numbers they scream Hall of Famer. The guy had microfracture surgery on his left knee in 2003 and his numbers took a dip since then but I personally never seen a big man that could play the way he did besides Kevin Garnett (who people say is a 'sure fire' Hall of Famer, and I agree) so I don't see why the comparisons should stop there. C-Webb, Hall of Fame bound.

When I think of C-Webb, I think of the guy calling the timeout his team didn't have. Sad but true. Enjoy retirement, fella.

His Detroit based Foundation is another "Timeout" he should be known for.

I just wish he hadn't taken the 'veteran player to help us through the playoffs' spot from the Warriors before realizing his body was done. I don't begrudge him the nice chunk of change out of Chris Cohen's pocketbook but the team lost out with his signing materially.
