Tyra tells her talk-show viewers she doesn’t really look like this. Okay.

Detroit homie Chris Webber played the role for all it was worth. After teasing us for days’, the Most-Talented-Player-Never-To-Win-An-NBA-Title chose home. Tyra Banks‘s 33–yaer-old ex entertained suitors from both coasts but finally signed with the Pistons to become the latest past-his-prime star to latch himself onto a contender in a quest for an elusive ring.

Webber was welcomed home today with hugs, kisses and tears. And he said all the rights, even humbling himself before team president Joe Dumars by saying he could never wear his traditional No 4 because Dumars wore that number and, well, “He’s the man. Said Dumars, sitting next to his newest acquisition, “Smart player.” C-Webb will wear No. 84.

C-Webb and Tyra as they once were…

Here’s the problem. Webber or not, the Pistons, with their now-formidable starting Cinco (Rasheed Wallace, Tayshawn Prince, Chauncey Billips, Richard Hamilton and C-Webb) still may not get out of the woeful but unpredictable Eastern Conference. Even if they do reach the NBA Finals, there are at least three, if not four teams (throw the Lakers in there with Dallas, Phoenix and San Antonio) out West that would mow down the Motown Five.

Nonetheless, C-Webb’s Homegoing (the kind the celebrant doesn’t mind attending) was the league’s feel-good story of the day, and C-Webb’s debut Wednesday v the Jazz will nodoubt be as stirring. For now Detroit can keep dreaming.

    Never has more been made about a dude on the other side of his prime, inking a deal with a team that has lost its edge.

    They just don’t seem to sell out hard for Flip Saunders. Rumor is he could be headed to the college ranks to coach the alma mater, University of Minnesota, a place where his kid plays…

    I like the parts on the Pistons, but they’re not playing well together. Don’t know what adding Webber does to them. It’s not like he’s been part of ny NBA championship runs.

    Isn’t Billups’ deal up at the end of this year? You know who could use him? His hometown Denver Nuggets. They need a point, move AI over to the 2… they’d be pretty formidable with that squad. Not sure enough there would be enough balls to go around, but worth a shot, no?

  2. Tyra, another Inglewood native! Along with Byron Scott and er…Elden Campbell. Nevermind.

    I’m glad my Lakers didn’t get him for one reason…he can’t move! He’ll be good for ten games and then…on the bench with less and less minutes. Boy, I used to LOVE watching the Kings get crushed by the Lakers every year. It was like the Roadrunner and the Coyote and Chris Webber always looked like he was more and more confused with each series loss.

  3. wyclefdoug says:

    I don’t think this move does anything to improve the Pistons. All he nowadays is a big guy who can pass, which is nice, but it does nothing to take the Pistons from average to great.

  4. Skylar says:

    Mack 10 is from Inglewood

    Pistons are gonna mash on all you clowns. Get the fishing rods out, you’re all going home early

  5. Juan says:

    Skylar is from the burbs.
    Pistons and I don’t play this year.

  6. Jake says:

    The Pistons couldn’t mash the Hawks last week. C-Webb spent too many seasons in purgatory…aka Sacramento. Dude never could find the right steps only mis-steps. He could have been a mega-star but now he resembles a hobbled old man looking for a handout. A big azz handout, but handout nonetheless. I fully expect him to announce his retirement at season’s end. For his sake anyway.

  7. Skylar says:

    You never play the Pistons Juan, there aren’t any Juan H. Bloggers listed in the NBA

    I’m from Inglewood for your information

  8. You couldn’t be from Inglewood. Because no one from Inglewood could root for any team other than the Lakers. lol

    Lawrence: Inglewood Born and Bred!

    BTW, Kobe POSTERIZED Duncan TWICE tonight.

  9. WTF says:

    What the hell does Chris going home have to do with Tyra. Who wrote this article…a high school student.

  10. Well, I did GO TO high-school once, WTF! 🙂 You can read even more about me in the “About Roy S. Johnson” section. Thanks for the comment. Come back any time. Of, and if you didn’t know, TB and CW were once an “item,” and, oh yeah, images of beautiful women are popular. I learned that in high-school, too. Before, really, but that’s another story.

  11. Juan says:

    Tyra has everything to do with Chris Webber. And nothing to do with him now, and that’s a-OK with me.

    Can someone explain why Webber is wearing #84?

    Not rooting for the Lakers and being from the City of Champions? And I don’t know anyone named Skylar being from Inglewood.

    Juan A. Blogger was the last cut by the Austin Toros of the D-League this past year. Me and Percy Miller.

  12. wyclefdoug says:

    My guess for 84 is the 1984 World Champion Detroit Tigers?

  13. Juan says:

    Not the 84 Tigers! As a young Padres fan, they broke my heart. A five-game prolonged heartbreak. No one could stop Trammell (a San Diego kid).

    If that is why Webber rocks the jersey, then I’m really not rooting for the Pistons, regardless of how much I like Tayshaun Prince.

  14. Daryl says:

    Chris Webber never played up to his super star ratings. I wish Detroit well. maybe Joe Dumars see something that I do not. Only time will tell.
