Chris Webber: People overstated their importance in Fab Five doc
TNT broadcaster Chris Webber joined the show to talk about the NBA playoffs and share his opinion the ESPN 30-for-30 documentary on the Fab Five.
Webber shared his issues with the production of the film on Michigan basketball: “A lot of people, after they retire or when they’re looking for a job or they want to be relevant, they go back in time and kind of make sure their importance is really known. My whole thing is it’s always been about the five. When one guy has a million highlights of himself, as if he was the leading scorer and all the stories are embellished, it’s a little hard for me. I think it was entertaining.”
Webber said he was asked to be in the documentary and wanted to do it. But they called him a week before shooting wrapped and he didn’t have time to wrap his head around it. “My story is pretty big,” Webber said. “You’re going to come to me with a week [left]?”
