SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Chris Webber returned to Arco Arena on Monday night and showed why Kings fans developed such deep-seated feelings about him during a seven-year run that lifted an after-thought of a team to a perennial playoff contender.

He also showed why the Kings are better off without him.

It's completely fair, since they basically traded Webber for three guys, they're saying he's better than all three put together.

Well I'd say the Sixers are still a better team with Webber than they were with Kenny Thomas and Brian Skinner. The major difference here that people aren't noting is that the Kings were a better team than us either way.

To see if the Kings are, I think we'll really have to see how they do in the post season, because they've always been a fairly good regular season team.

Excuse me?
The trade wasn't only for Webber. It was a 6 player trade - 3 players from ea team.
ESPN could've worded it better but they meant to write it that way to stir controversy.

ESPN wants you to read it. If it's fair you wouldn't bother wasting your time on it.

And how many minutes have those two played combined? exactly.

Sometimes having two guys who come off the cap quickly are more important then the guys who play.
