Jeffrey William Webb (born July 6, 1948) is a retired American professional basketball player.

Basketball team sport played on a court with baskets on either end

Basketball is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly of five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball through the defender's hoop while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop. A field goal is worth two points, unless made from behind the three-point line, when it is worth three. After a foul, timed play stops and the player fouled or designated to shoot a technical foul is given one or more one-point free throws. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins, but if regulation play expires with the score tied, an additional period of play (overtime) is mandated.

A 6'4" (1.93 m) guard from Kansas State University, Webb played two seasons (1970–1972) in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns. He averaged 2.1 points per game in his career and won a league championship with Milwaukee in 1971.
