Growing up I lived, breathed and slept basketball (and sometimes I actually DID sleep with my basketball)
I read this book when I was in my 1st year playing basketball in college @ U of W about The FAB 5 Michigan Wolverines. A NCAA team in the mid nineties that revolutionized the game of bball: Trash talk, bald heads, baggy shorts & hip hop and the fact that 5 freshmen Webber, Rose, Howard, King & Jackson could be real WINNERS.
Almost 20 years later, here is a ESPN documentary about that legacy that they left on the game.
Fab 5 = a Visionary Team & Leadership.
Chris Webber & Jaylen Rose were my idols. I loved the flash of their games and style so much so that in high school I shaved my head, got an ear ring (yes, my mom freaked out) and even one game I actually got a technical foul for wearing my shorts too low. Seriously.
Shocking the World & Always Winning,
