Chris Webber jumped on The Grant Napear Show on KHTK in Sacramento on Friday to discuss the erroneous information Webber’s TNT crew reported about the team’s arena situation the night before during the Kings home win over the Thunder. And as Napear came to learn, Webber was in a pissy mood.

The former Kings star was given the opportunity to explain untrue remarks made during the broadcast by him and Cheryl Miller. Specifically, Miller was corrected by Sacramento Mayor and former NBA point guard Kevin Johnson during an interview when she said the city council rejected a proposal for a new arena. Later in the broadcast, Webber, who sported a Kings jersey during the game, made further comments about a stadium agreement not happening. But during Napear’s show Webber reacted as if he was being attacked.

“All I’ve done is keep Sacramento’s name out there, it’s a fact,” Webber said during a nearly three-minute rant. “Who got on TV last year and said we need people to call in and make sure Sacramento stays? Did I do that? Did I stop my professionalism and go to my one agenda, which is to keep the team there? Can you ever accuse me of being professional when it comes to the Kings? Because you can’t. I can’t be professional because that’s my home. So if we need to have a conversation, let’s have a conversation.”

Napear, who also serves as the Kings’ TV play-by-play announcer, attempted to interject several times to regain control of the interview and pleaded that Webber not end the call, but there was no stopping C-Webb.

“If I did anything wrong to the fans of Sacramento, I apologize, but I’m not going to give this guy a chance on this show to do that,” Webber went on. “I’ll give you the forum to talk to me, and I apologize if I did anything wrong, Sacramento.”

And then he hung up.
