WEBBER HOLDOUT HURTS HIS MERCHANDISE SALES
Published November 17, 1994
For many fans, last year's NBA Rookie of the Year Chris Webber "has gone from hero to villain." During his holdout, which ended last night when he re-signed with the Warriors, souvenir shops reported lower interest in Webber apparel. Retailer Matt Medrano: "Right now, I'd say [fans are] just mad at Webber." The AP notes that $45 Webber jerseys "are getting ignored" at Oakland Coliseum (AP/N.Y. POST, 11/17).
