Jalen Rose fires back at Chris Webber

SHARE Jalen Rose fires back at Chris Webber

It didn’t take long for Jalen Rose to respond to Chris Webber’s inflammatory comments on “The Dan Patrick Show.”

Don’t expect a Fab Five reunion tour anytime soon.

On Wednesday, Webber told Patrick he didn’t care for the ESPN “30 for 30” on the Fab Five, largely produced by Rose. Webber said [4-minute mark] some of the stories were “embellished” and others from his Michigan team (read Rose) made themselves out to look better.

Late Wednesday, Rose told Larry Brown Sports:

One dude traveled then called timeout. One dude lied to grand jury and hasn’t apologized. One dude tried to circumvent the documentary to HBO. One dude ignored multiple requests from everyone involved after agreeing to participate. One dude played like (President) Obama and sat in a suite during Michigan’s recent title game. One dude slandered Ed Martin after all he did for him and his family. One dude is not in contact with the other four (which is all good). One dude has been doing a rebuttal doc for four years. One dude clearly is delusional and still in denial.

Rose ended his rant with this: “Congrats on your amazing success! Respect had no price. Man up.”
