DAILY SPORTS WRITERS
AUBURN HILLS - For Chris
Webber, the anticipation of daily rides
on Space Mountain were quickly
dashed in a blockbuster deal at the
1993 NBA draft last Wednesday at the
Palace of Auburn Hills.
After being drafted with the first
pick by Orlando, the 6-foot-9 power
forward spentamere20iminutes in the
Magic'sKingdombeforetheysenthim
toGoldenStatefor third-pick Anfernee
Hardaway and three first-round picks,
to be used no sooner than the 1996,
1998, and 2000 drafts.
While Webberhad salivated in the
weeks preceding the draft at the pros-
pect of Orlando center Shaquille
O'Neal dunking home his air balls, he
said being sent to the home of Alcatraz
was a sentence he could stomach.
"I didn't know I would be traded,
but it doesn't matter," Webber said. "I
believe God has a plan forime, and the
plannowisformetoplayinCalifomia.
... I'm just glad I was chosen number
one, that was the important thing."
Aside from any personal gratifi-
cation this might provide for Webber,
the number one pick represents one
thing: big bucks.
Last year's No. 1 pick, O'Neal,
signed a seven-year, $49 million con-
tract, a deal Orlando felt it would have
trouble duplicating for Webber while
still staying under the NBA's salary
cap. Orlando, therefore, traded for
Hardaway, a player they coveted and
thought they would be able to sign.
"Hardaway came down (to Or-
lando), and he was absolutely spec-
tacular yesterday," Orlando President
Dick DeVos said. "He impressed ab-
solutely everyone in the building, and
everybody in the half-mile around.
"There are no bad choices," he
added. "Chris is a wonderful young
man and a great young player."
Webber'saddition totheWarriors'
arsenal gives them one of the best
young teams in the Western Confer-

ence. With Chris Mullin, Tim
Hardaway, Sarunas Marciulionus and
Billy Owens, all scoring threats from
theoutside,GoldenStatedearlyneeded
a power player to grab rebounds and
muscleinside.Andwithahoslofyoung
guns, the Warriors weren't hesitant to
deal away part of their future.Even so,
some questioned whether Webber was
worth Anfernee Hardaway and three
first-rounders. Webber ranked among
the most prominent of the skeptics.
"Iwouldn'thavedone(thetrade),"
Webber said.
Those willing to shell out $12. 50
and dress nicer than the blue-jeans-
and-sneakers look could join Webber
inhisgood fortune at the State Theater
in Detroit after the draft. But part of
Webber'sentourageaccompaniedhim
to the draft itself. Among those spotted
were Webber's parents, former team-
mates Jalen Rose andJimmy King and
Michigan coach Steve Fisher.
Webber's father Mayce expressed
his faithinWarriors'coachDonNelson
to look after Chris.
"I'm going to look to Don Nelson
to take care ofimyson,"MayceWebber
said. "I trust Don Nelson. ... If he's
willing todo what they didtogetChris,
I think they like him.
"He's somebody Iknow cancoach.
Just look at his record, it's amazing."
As for Rose, there had been much
speculation before this past season that
he would join his friend Webber at the
professional level. Buthe chose to stay
for another year, and he admitted no
sadness at seeing his companion go.
"Youkind ofthinklike that(regret-
ting his decision to stay)when you hear
some of the draft choices, but I'm
happy with my decision," Rose said.
"My time will come in the next two
years."
Although he received the bulk of
the attention, Webber did not qualify

Center Eric Riley, who played as a
reserve for most of his final two years
at Michigan, was selected 33rd overall
