Assigned Reading: Revisiting the Fab Five at the Final Four


We all remember it, but the NCAA wants us to suppress those images of young men with swagger, black socks, and baggy shorts by pretending it never happened...because it was assembled in an illegal manner.

The New York Times' Pete Thamel re-visits Michigan's Fab Five of Jalen, Chris, Juwan, Jimmy and Ray, who are in Detroi for a reunion dubbed "The Big Ten All-Star Celebration."  Yes that's going to look lame on the marquee  but, again, the Fab Five didn't really happen, according to the NCAA.  Whoever they are, the quintet are an important chapter in the book on College Basketball and we certainly haven't forgotten them.
