The band is getting back together again. Chris Webber will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
In an interview with Shams Charania of The Athletic this week, Webber said the Fab Five is “back together” and revealed that his former Michigan teammates will be in attendance in Springfield, Mass., on Saturday.
“You’re going to see us together a lot. I’m very happy that those guys are coming to the Hall of Fame to be with me. … I am Michigan, they are Michigan, any alumni, they are Michigan,” Webber said. “You’re going to see a lot of us, starting with the football game in a couple weeks. It’s definitely a process, a healing process and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.”
Webber said he feels he is part of the Michigan basketball program because Juwan Howard, another member of the Fab Five, is the head coach. He said Howard being successful with the Wolverines is the priority for the Fab Five and that “everything else will fall into line.”
The Fab Five, which consisted of Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Webber, Ray Jackson, and Jimmy King. Their style of play along with the brotherhood they formed influenced a generation of ballers in the 90s. To see Webber heading to the Hall of Fame and making peace with his brothers is the happy ending he deserves.
