CHRIS WEBBER GETS MORE PRESS IN D.C. THAN NEWT GINGRICH
Published November 18, 1994
The Bullets pulled the trigger on one of the biggest deals in recent NBA history, and are hoping it pays off at the box office. Yesterday's trade for 1993 Rookie of the Year Chris Webber, and the signing of fellow Fab-Fiver Juwan Howard, created "hysteria" in the Nation's Capital. The team "didn't have enough people answering the phones or take the requests," writes Michael Wilbon of the WASHINGTON POST. Wilbon: "More than 500 season- ticket plans had been sold by 9:30 last night. ... The Bullets have a superstar. ... someone to put on posters and billboards" (WASHINGTON POST, 11/18). The SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY recently completed a survey of the top marketable young players in the NBA. Webber finished second, behind Detroit rookie Grant Hill.
