Four stiffs and a trombone

An occasional feature where we link to great profiles of four less-than-great athletes and the one star who ties them all together.

We've realized our niche at We Rite Goode--loyal reader, you clued us in. Mediocrity. Let Lion in Oil and Deuce of Davenport celebrate the celebrated. We'll stick to doing bad so goode, it's merely awful.

But we're not the only ones bringing the spotlight to the shadows. Here's a tour of the lousy around the eBays:

Meanwhile, who's our great this week? Let's see if you can parse the connections...

* Like Cota, this man played in two NCAA Final Fours (and against a pre-Cota UNC in one)
* Like Foyle, this NBA big man did a tour of duty in Golden State
* Like Booth, he was a versatile player who could step out and shoot the three (ht: BF.)

* And like Smith, this man was, that's hardly fair, our star was acquitted...we'll say that he left D.C. sports fans with awesome highlight memories.

Yes, this week's star is the one, the only (highlight for answer) Chris Webber. As Bullets Forever continues its countdown of all-time greats, click over to read a fond, well-written summaryof Mayce II's Washington days.

That "worst running back" list is great--and the podcast that spawned it (the 8/17 BS Report) is surprisingly good too.

A God Shammgod reference last week, an Ed Cota sighting this week.

Throw in Victor Page and make the cycle complete.
