But not even a week has passed since that news broke, Webber gets invited into the most prestigious group the sport has to offer. Life really hits you hard sometimes, only to help you right back up.

Webber first made headlines as arguably the biggest face of the Michigan Wolverines' famed “Fab Five” in the early nineties. He then propelled himself into a successful NBA career, making his mark as the 1993-94 rookie of the year. Five All-Star appearances, five All-NBA team selections, and several memorable playoff series battles summed up what became a stellar decade and a half for C-Webb.

Webber joins Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce and Detroit Pistons' beloved center Ben Wallace as fellow inductees for the 2021 Hall of Fame class.
