Chris Webber -- NCAA's Gotta Change ... It's Slavery Now (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Webber believes the feds got it wrong when they shot down an attempt by NCAA players to unionize because he says the organization's currently being run like a slavery-era plantation.

We asked Chris about the National Labor Relations Board rejecting the union bid from Northwestern football players ... and he remembered some words of wisdom he picked up from NBA legend Bill Russell.

WNBA superstar Tamika Catchings happened to be at LAX too ... although she was less talkative about the ruling -- which essentially blocks college athletes from being compensated on top of their scholarships.

It's odd she didn't voice an opinion since she starred at the University of Tennessee ... where women's basketball is, hands down, the most successful team sport.
