Chris Webber Says Juwan Howard's Hiring at Michigan Can Reunite Fab Five

MI hiring Juwan Howard to be its next men's basketball coach could end the feud between members of the iconic Fab Five team, Jalen Rose said Thursday.

As a first-time head coach, having an experienced staff is going to be critical for Howard and retaining Sanderson is a big step forward. He was a member of the fabled Fab Five along with Webber, Jalen Rose, Ray Jackson, and Jimmy King.

Rose said Howard's hiring would bring the Fab Five members back together. There will not be any disrespect to the program.

"I think one common thread that they have, they're really good people who care about their players, quite honestly, and always put their players first", Robinson said, "and understand that, yeah, winning basketball games is really important, but what matters most is how you develop these young kids both on and off the court".

Michigan's Fab Five led the school to national title game appearances in 1992 and 1993, but things turned sour when Webber became one of several players linked to receiving improper payments from former booster Ed Martin.

The ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor has a size of 0.8µm pixel, which would make it the smallest pixel size now available in the market. There is support for real-time high dynamic range of up to 100 decibels (dB) which can give "richer hues" says Samsung.

"He's just the type of guy you want to play for, want to play hard for", Robinson said.

The four-star guard out of Lynden (Washington) Christian High School made his first public comments since John Beilein left as Michigan's coach. "Then it's about us being there to support him, not being drama, not being splintered, not giving any indication of dysfunction".

Rose reiterated this point later in the day during a segment with fellow MI alum Adam Schefter.

During an interview on NBA TV, Webber said that there is no better man than Howard to continue what Beilein started.
