Former Sacramento King Kings Chris Webber
SACRAMENTO, CA - Sacramento Kings legend Chris Webber sat down for an exclusive one-on-one interview with News10 during his return to Power Balance Pavilion Thursday night.
Webber, part of the TNT crew that televised the game nationally, admitted he's still nervous about the future of the team here.
"It's really scary because Sacramento is so important to me," Webber said. "I just really want Sacramento to know how important it is to the basketball community but how quickly we will be forgotten if we don't have a team."
Webber said he did something before heading to the arena for Thursday's game that he had never done before.
"I brought a camera today. I brought a video camera and a camera. I want to take pictures during the game. I'm going to take video during the game. I don't know if this is the last time here. I've been taking pictures around Sacramento all day. I went downtown. Old railyards. I went everywhere. I'm getting to say hi to people, not that I won't come back but I'm just scared.... just want to make sure that I get to take this moment in and even though I'm working, I'm still a fan and this still... it's one of the oldest but it's one of the best arena's ever. Go ask Phil Jackson. Ask my partner, Shaq. Ask Kobe. You know what I mean? The cowbells, the sign lady. There's some crazy people in there. And I love it."
Webber said he hopes to remain active behind the scenes in efforts to get a new downtown sports and entertainment complex built.
