Former NBA All-Star Chris Webber to Teach Master’s Course at Wake Forest

It’s a shame that the nickname is already taken—otherwise, we could’ve called Chris Webber “The Professor” from here on in.

According to the Associated Press, the former All-Star has agreed to teach a course as part of Wake Forest’s “new master of arts in sports storytelling program.”

Here’s more, per AP:

Webber will be a professor of practice in the program that is part of the university's documentary film program. He will teach a class on sports, race and society.

Webber was part of Michigan's "Fab Five" in the early 1990s, made five All-Star teams during his 15-year NBA career and now works as a television analyst. He formed a production company in 2012 with Hoop Dreams producer Peter Gilbert—who's also a professor of practice in the university's documentary film program.

How long before this class fills up? The (hypothetical) over/under on that is 30 seconds.
