The NBA 1979 No.1 draft pick takes on the NBA 1993 No.1 draft
pick at Joe Louis Arena Sunday night.

the veterans, while former Wolverine
Michael Talley,ex-Kansas Jayhawk
Rex Walters, Michigan State alumnus
Mike Peplowski and Detroit Mercy
graduates Dwayne Kelley and Mike
Lovelace highlighted the rookies' ros-
ter. Talley, whose career status is cur-
rently in limbo, scored seven points.
"I was kind of off tonight," Talley
said. "IguessI didn't have the concen-
tration. Iwasjustmore having fun than
thinking about playing basketball."
Talley said he was in the process of
choosing an NBA summer camp to
attend, and he also was contemplating
the Los Angeles summer league.
Although all the competitors aided
in the quality of the production, no
doubt remained over the hierarchy of
the present players: Johnson reigned,
Webber stood by as the king-in-wait-
ing and everyone else qualified for
what Michael Jordan would call the
"supporting cast." The two stars, who
went at each other one-on-one a few
times, expressed much admiration for
each other.

"Right now he can play," Johnson
said of Webber. "He made the step to
college; nowhehas to make the step to
the NBA. Hehas the talent. Hejusthas
to keep growing, keep getting better in
terms of working on his game.
"There's a lot of things he could
work on. He will be working on them
in the summertime, and Iwill be help-
ing him out. As long as he don't think
now because he's the number one pick
-which he won't-and say 'Okay, I
made it,' because he hasn't yet."
"I wouldn'tbe surprised ifhe came
back to play in the NBA this year,"
Webber said of Johnson.
Webber has constantly occupied
the spotlight the last two weeks. From
his No. 1 draft-pick status, to the trade
that sent him west, to his charity work,
there has rarely been a day where he
did not make news. He doesn't seem to
mindit toomuch, forhesaid thatatthis
point he holds no regrets over leaving
Michigan early.
"If I would have stayed and saw I
could have been number one and gone
to Orlando or Golden State, I'd have
kicked myself in the ass every day,"
Webber said.
