Chris Webber found himself in a bizarre situation when he was traded from Washington to Sacramento. C-Webb says he was at a convenience store when he found out, as the store clerk was actually the first person to break it to him. Webber couldn’t believe he got traded, especially with the NBA Playoffs still going on.

(Via Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson & Darius Miles):

“When I got traded from there it was during the playoffs. I didn’t even know you could get traded in the playoffs. The man at the store told me and I thought he was playing around.”
