Fab 5 thoughts

I'm sure that 99.9% of everyone of us are tuned in to ESPN right now, but what are your thoughts on the special as we watch?

My memory of the Fab 5 is my

My memory of the Fab 5 is my big cuzzo, who I appreciate now for always talking about Jalen Rose. It was Jalen Rose this Jalen Rose that, if it weren't for him I would have never knew about Jalen Rose or the Fab 5. My cuzzo is an arteest & had portraits covering his wall of nothing, but Jalen. Me on the other hand did not watch Michigan basketball until the Jamal Crawford era, that was my "Jalen Rose" LOL.

For those who didn't know,

For those who didn't know, christian Laettner was a straight BEAST. i hated him along with the other Duke players but he was the truth. Gave it to every big man he faced in college including Shaq

i wasnt watching college ball

i wasnt watching college ball back then so my memories are vague. I do remember seeing them in sportsillustrated and seeing people even in california wearing michigan jerseys. The webber timeout was a big story at the time. This show is an interesting watch.

watching this makes me miss

watching this makes me miss the days when so many guys returned to college for 3-4 years even if they were lotto picks they came back. Im seeing leattner, hill, jimmy jackson and they were college stars for longer then what we see now.

You can credit all that to the hype of players such as LeBron James from National t.v. exposure in HS & the AAU circuit.

Jackson said the goal was to

Jackson said the goal was to win it all & everyone to declare for the draft afterwards. I don't recall seeing but 1 highlight of him doing something in a Michigan uniform.

Ray was a glue guy but had some talent. Prob a late second round pick because teams didnt see many of his weaknesses yet

i hate Jalen Rose, he is an idiot...always has been...

I'm more of fan of Webber and his insecurity, it makes him likable, if you can get past the fact he abused Tyra Banks back in the day, but that was likely a sign of his insecurity and faults as a man...

I wasn't talking about him

I wasn't talking about him being the best player in the history of the NBA sir. I meant his charismatic personality and how he went about his business playing back then.

Rose was my favorite player

I had Michigan hat, coat everything. Jalen Rose was the best all around player back then to me in college ball. Really started to play ball all the time during the fab 5 years.

I was too young to realize

I was too young to realize their influence on basketball, but even at 10 years old in the middle of Kansas, where I grew up, I knew of the Fab 5. I was way more into Michael Jordan and the Bulls and KU, than Michigan, but I remember watching them in the Final 4 and liking Chris Webber's style of play even as a young kid. The espn doc was great, it was 2 hours long and it felt like about 45 minutes.

Bill Walton really pissed me

Bill Walton really pissed me off with what he said. I kinda lost some respect for Chris Webber honestly, but I've always been a big fan of Jalen Rose. Too bad I wasn't alive back then

"For me personally shorts was

"For me personally shorts was always an issue. The first day we got uniforms, I did exactly what I tried to do in High School, get the biggest pair of shorts. I picked out a nice big pair, but the problem was they were for Chip Armer, they had #43 in them. So when Chip showed up that day, I asked him. And God bless him he was cool with it"-Jalen Rose

That is so hilarious, because I can picture Jalen trying to con him out of those shorts. That's the same type of stuff I was on back in HS, when it came to jersey #s so I can relate.
