Jalen Rose: Chris Webber Should Apologize, 'Protect' Fab Five Legacy

Rose discusses his tense relationship with Webber since the Michigan basketball scandal.

University of Michigan's legendary Fab Five led the school to countless victories before student athletes were caught in a scandal for receiving gifts from booster Ed Martin. Decades later, now-retired Fab Five member Jalen Rose still hopes his former team member Chris Webber will apologize for his role in the controversy.

Rose sat down with HuffPost Live on Wednesday to discuss his new book, Got to Give the People What They Want, which contains a chapter subtitled "Why Chris Webber And I Haven't Spoken In Five Years." Rose opened up about his rocky relationship with Webber, who caught heat after he lied to a federal grand jury about his involvement with Martin back in 2000. While Rose still considers the group to be "brothers," he urged Webber to apologize to protect the legacy of the Fab Five.
