California Files Tax Lien On Former NBA #1 Draft Pick Chris Webber
Not you too C. Webb!? The State of California has filed a $119,000 tax lien against Chris Webber for failure to pay taxes from part of 2008 and all of 2009, reports TMZ.
The Fab 5 member and former #1 NBA Draft pick initially owed $81,427 but that ballooned thanks to $25,875 in penalties and $11,629 in interest.
The Detroit native currently works as an analyst for NBA-TV and TNT. Fans recently caught throwback footage of Chris Webber playing against the 1992 Dream Team in the NBA TV doc The Dream Team. Webber, along with primetime players like Jamal Mashburn and Grant Hill were part of the select team of college players chosen to play against the Dream Team.
This where we mention Webber dropped a rap album in 1999 called 2 Much Drama and has also placed his production on not one but two Nas joints ("Blunt Ashes," "Surviving the Times").
Webber seems to be doing well enough financially so hopefully this could be a case of a misplaced bill. We hope.
