Former Michigan Wolverines star and Fab Five member Chris Webber sounded off on his former teammates, saying they exaggerated their importance on the team.
After hearing the comments, it didn’t take long for some of those players to fire back.
Jalen Rose held back no punches when he responded to the claims to Larry Brown Sports. It was clear that Rose was not happy with being thrown under the bus.
One dude traveled then called timeout,” Rose said. “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.”
If that wasn’t bad enough, Jimmy King called Webber a “habitual liar” and sounded off as well.
“I’m embarrassed, and I’m disappointed, in how he’s chosen to go about this,” he said on the Ryan & Rico Show on 105.1 FM in Detroit. “I think he has personal issues. I think he likes a little drama, carrying on with certain things, as far as relationships are concerned, that could have been handled years ago. I think that it’s a personal flaw that he has.”
Well, it is clear that there is still plenty of tension among the group of players.
