The Fab Five changed the way college basketball is and was being played. They took basketball back to where it started for most of the college players, the streets. With the bald heads and baggy shorts, every young kid did not want to be like Mike, they wanted to be like th Fab 5. This was a great book and I recommend it to anyone who loves college basketball. Remember, because of the Fab 5, many teams, including the NBA started to change the uniform, black tube socks, etc. Thanks Chris, Jalen, Juwan, Jimmy and my high school teammate Ray for all the wonderful memories.

Fab Five? Fab Joke.

No matter how you look at it, they never won a NCAA National Championship Title. Both college basketball superhouses (that everyone loves to hate) Duke and Carolina beat the "fab five," Duke winning the National Title. Without even getting into the topic of dirty sports...
No matter how you look at it, they never won a NCAA National Championship Title. Both college basketball superhouses (that everyone loves to hate) Duke and Carolina beat the "fab five," Duke winning the National Title. Without even getting into the topic of dirty sports/cheating, it is quite clear the only thing the so called fab five really did was make a much needed change in the college hoops fashion sense...and for that, I truly thank them.

    Great Inside Look

    This is a great book. Jalen, Chris, Juwan, Jimmy, and Ray were one of the best recruiting classes, cheating or not. Their lives were not as easy as basketball, and Albom does a great job of really reminding us that, even though they were good, the Fab Five were always a "T" away.
