Former NBA Star to shed new light on the infamous Fab Five

Published Add your comment

There will be a new Fab Five documentary available soon, but this one will feature a voice void from ESPN's famous 30 for 30. Chris Webber has announced that he will produce a documentary telling his side of the Fab Five.

Webber confirmed this in Flint, Michigan on Thursday August 7th, during a guest appearance at Mateen Cleaves' basketball camp. 

Webber's silence

He had recently elected to not participate in the 30 for 30 documentary, which was produced by his former teammate Jalen Rose. That film seemed to have every possible interview or guest appearance, except for Webber.

Webber is also finally allowed to associate with Michigan athletics again, after his forced disassociation for accepting money from Booster Ed Martin ended in 2013.

Webber's story

Webber did not stop at a documentary, but went on to say:

"You're about to have a lot more to talk about, because I have a book that's coming out this summer that's going to tell the truth, because everything you've heard has been stories of writers that weren't there or people that wanted to lie, so we're going to shock the world with a book and a documentary."

He went on to tease these productions a little more:

"It's very soon, I can't announce it yet, we're signing, but very soon and Mateen is actually going to be a big part of it because that's my young boy and we had some good times in Sacramento, so we're looking forward to it and hopefully it's successful."

Stiff competition

Webber seems to be warming back up to Michigan and his former teammates after making an appearance with them at the 2013 NCAA championship game.

I think its safe to say that if his documentary is half as good as Jalen's story for the 30 for 30 series, it will be a resounding success.
