Sixers come up short with CWebb

Feb 27, 2005, 2:37 PM EDT

Webber_iverson_05 The Sixers seemed to dominate the Kings early and were off to a fast start with their new lineup of Sammy, Korver, A.I., CWebb, and Iggy.  The Kings battled back and eventually ruined CWebb’s first game as a Sixer.  Former Sixer Corliss Williamson played really well for the Kings throwing in 17 points on 7 of 11 shooting.  Kenny Thomas also had a great performance for the Kings putting up 16.  When did he do this for us?

Webber grabbed a rebound when Iverson missed a free throw on purpose with 3 seconds left but couldn’t connect on a 4 footer to put the game into OT.  I think we can write this one off to the Sixers not having much time to practice with their newly formed squad.  They had 5 players in double figures led by A.I.’s 27 points and 14 assists.Dsc00605asixerskings01_2

The fans seemed to give Webber a great welcome both when he was announced pre-game and any time he scored or made a big play.  I sat about 3 rows from the top of the Wack Center which actually isn’t a horrible seat, definitely not a good seat, but a good time none the less.Dsc00607abirdsixers_1 

A nice article from’s Dime Magazine talking about Chris Webbers great reception in Philly and how they think he will fit in just right.
