The Fab 5 were perhaps the greatest recruiting class in the history of college basketball, forming the University of Michigan starting 5 for their freshman and sophomore years. The Fab 5 were Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Jimmy King, Juwan Howard and Ray Jackson. In their freshman year, they made it to the championship game but lost to Duke, then made it back their sophomore year, losing to North Carolina. Chris Webber left for the pros, and the Fab 4 that remained made it to the elite 8 their junior year before losing to eventual champion Arkansas.
Man, Michigan's basketball team sucks...who would've known that school once had the Fab 5?

Michigan Fab 5 are Chris Webber, Jimmy King, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard and Ray Jackson. The entire group played together for only 2 years because Webber went to the NBA after the season. The 5 lost in the Final Four, and really the Final 2, of the NCAA tournament basketball championship losing to the Duke Blue Devils in Minneapolis as freshman, then to the North Carolina Tar Heels as sophomores.
Chris Webber, Jimmy King, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard and Ray Jackson set the trend in basketball at the time, yet now scandel has stolen their glory

1.) The Freshman class that consisted of Chris Webber, Juwan Howard, Jalen Rose, Ray Jackson, and Jimmy King. Webber, however, destroyed the legacy of the Fab Five, who lost the NCAA Championship game single-handedly when he called a timeout that didn't exist. Worse, he permanently tainted the entire Michigan basketball program from accepting money from a booster.

2.) The five gay stylists from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. They make random straight people over.
If Ed Martin was alive Chris Webber would be in jail.

The Fab Five made the Red Sox over!
