Chris Webber is currently part of TNT’s Playoff coverage, but the former All-Star was much more involved during this time two decades ago. On May 3, 1994, as the ’93-94 NBA season came to a close, Webber won the Rookie of the Year honor. Although Webber’s draft class featured other stars like Penny Hardaway, C-Webb’s rookie year numbers were some of the best of all time, which cemented his ROTY recognition. He was the first rookie to tally over 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 250 assists, 150 blocks, and 75 steals. These mammoth numbers helped to foreshadow a successful career for Webber, who would go on to be a five-time NBA All-Star with the Washington Bullets and Sacramento Kings.
Webber rotated between some of Nike’s best sneakers of the era, and is known for wearing the Nike Air Maestro on several occasions. The Air Maestro featured an inner neoprene sleeve, ankle lock strap, and Air cushioning. If you’re a larger guard or forward, you should consider the updated Nike Flight Maestro Plus and can be found for $54.
