Personally though, I do agree that he should be a HOFer. I believe he was a revolutionary player for the PF position and really set the tone for what teams looked for in a PF (not simply a rebounder, but a guy you can run the offence through by utilizing their passing skills and also being able to hit a 20ft jumper consistently). However, what will always hurt Chris is his legacy of never really living up to his hype that surrounded him what he left Michigan. I dunno I say he gets in, but it won't be for a while.
Webber's legacy will be the timeout against NC, lying to the grand jury and bad knees.

He was a wonderful player, but Bob McAdoo beat Webber by about two decades being a versatile big man who could shoot from outside and pass.
