Chris Webber deserves apology from Michigan, NCAA for disassociation treatment

Chris Webber never stood a chance. Not at the start. And not later, when Webber tried to end the relationship, whatever gifts he was given could’ve been used to blackmail him – NCAA rules and all.

Webber was so caught in the web that he eventually lied to a grand jury about taking money from Martin, a mistake that forced him to plead guilty to criminal contempt and make everything worse than it should’ve been.)

Much is made that Webber wasn’t poor – his family was middle class and he attended a prestigious high school in the suburbs. Others see him as this big, powerful physical figure he became, capable of standing up to anyone. Still others consider him some kind of arrogant jerk and couldn’t care less.

All of it is so self-centered.
