Martell Webster is a 23 year old NBA American basketball player who stands at 6’7” and weighs 205 pounds. He is a small forward-shooting guard which was touted as “The Definition” as an offshoot of the name Webster which refers to a widely-used dictionary.

During his early years, he has been always picked by the school’s basketball team for his excellent performance in the game. As a testament to this, he averaged big scores at games as a Seattle Preparatory School and had various basketball awards to his name.

In 2005, he was the sixth pick in the NBA draft and went with the Blazers. Then he was assigned to the NBA Development League and became the highest drafted player. In February 2006, he returned to the Portland Trail Blazers where he scored his highest statistics at 26 points in January 5, 2008 against the Utah Jazz. In October of that year, he signed a four year $20 million contract deal. He missed the 2008 – 2009 NBA season with a left foot injury but on January 23, 2010 he made a career-high of 28 points in a game over the Pistons.

Now, he is going to be traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Ryan Gomes and Luke Babbit.
