Earlier this week, Chris Webber made waves during his appearance on the Dan Patrick Show. While discussing the 30 for 30 documentary on The Fab Five, which he was not involved in after reportedly being contacted about participating about a week before they were finished with the film. Webber was willing to be a part of the doc, even though admitting he’s been working on a book for five years that will tell his side of the story.


During their conversation, Webber took aim at fellow Fab Five member, Jalen Rose, saying, “I made an agreement when I joined the Fab Five not to be above the group. There was a chance to be above the group. I have stated consistently as a member nobody is above another.” He added, “It’s just disheartening when you pay attention to those rules for 20-plus years and somebody wants to be ‘Hollywood’ and make it about them.”

Following that interview, Larry Brown Sports reached out to Rose, who fired back at Webber with some vicious verbal jabs of his own.

“One dude traveled then called timeout. One dude lied to grand jury and hasn’t apologized. One dude tried to circumvent the documentary to HBO. One dude ignored multiple requests from everyone involved after agreeing to participate. One dude played like (President) Obama and sat in a suite during Michigan’s recent title game. One dude slandered Ed Martin after all he did for him and his family. One dude is not in contact with the other four (which is all good). One dude has been doing a rebuttal doc for four years. One dude clearly is delusional and still in denial,” Rose said of Webber in messages to Larry Brown Sports.

“Congrats on your amazing success! Respect had no price. Man up.”

Rose, Webber and the rest of the Fab Five were so influential to society in multiple ways that is really is a shame all these years later there is so much animosity. Hopefully the day will come where they can all remember it was them against the world before anything else.
