Fans want him to start now. His teammates even think he's ready. But coach Nate McMillan is preaching patience. Sure, Portlandís 18-year-old shooting guard will take his lumps this season, especially on defense, where McMillan says Webster has 'no clue'.

At the least, he'll be one of the Blazers' key players off the bench and a fan favorite.
