Chris Webber has some advice for the Lakers players: Steal all of Kobe Bryant’s stuff after games this season. And while you’re at it, take a photo of yourself with his stuff so that people know it’s real later.
According to Webber, that’s exactly what he did back in 2007 when Allen Iverson got traded to the Nuggets after spending a decade with the 76ers. He said goodbye to AI in the Sixers’ locker room and then, as soon as AI walked out, he raided his locker and made off with all kinds of stuff that he still has at home.
“I was sitting in the locker room and I’m like, ‘That’s my boy Allen Iverson. He’s one of the greatest players ever. I’m about to take everything out of his locker,’” Webber admitted on NBA TV last night. “I took everything out of his locker. I have about 20 pairs of shoes. I got his jersey, practice jersey, shorts, socks; I took the dirty clothes bag, no lie! Because I’m like, ‘This is the greatest moment ever.’ And I’m just like, ‘Y’all don’t want none of this? This is AI’s stuff.’ And at my house right now, I got the last shoes he played with in Philly, the last uniform. I’m just trying to give these guys some advice: Steal Kobe’s stuff after every game!”
Ernie Johnson then asked Webber: “Did you debate telling that story?”
LOL. How many missed calls do you think Webber has from AI right now?
