That NBA Lottery Pick:
In the photo above, catch a glimpse of the notorious and ridiculously talented "Fab Five" squad rooting on their Alma mater Michigan as the Wolverines take on Louisville in tonight's national championship game. Creating a befitting buzz, this legendary quintet consisted of Jimmy King, Juwan Howard, Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Ray Jackson. Widely considered to be one of the greatest recruiting classes in the history of college basketball, the Fab Five led the Wolverines to back-to-back national championship games in 1992 and 1993 as freshmen and sophomores (their accomplishments were later overshadowed due to team members accepting money from Ed Martin).Will the presence of the Fab Five in the Georgia Dome be the boost Michigan needs to get the 'W' over Louisville tonight?

AROUND THE WEB
Chris Webber was the subject of much speculation over the past week on whether or not he would show up for a Fab Five reunion in Atlanta. Webber, who has shied away from the University of Michigan since a scandal involving him rocked the program, arrived in Atlanta to support the school in their title [...]
Chris Webber ended all the suspense. The former Fab Five member showed up at the national championship game Monday in Atlanta to root on the Michigan Wolverines as they took on the Louisville Cardinals.
Webber had a falling out with Michigan, and Jalen Rose and Jimmy King had said he wasn’t in contact with them. Looks like C-Webb changed his mind.
Chris Webber has kept his distance from Michigan since his role in the boosting scandal with Ed Martin led to sanctions for the University that included Michigan pulling down the Fab Five’s 1993 national finalist banner. But on the 20th anniversary of the “Fab 5″ making it to the NCAA finals, the school was once again back in the spotlight on Monday night. Jalen Rose, Juwan...
Jalen Rose called out Chris Webber on Monday morning, announcing
that all the members of Michigan's famed Fab Five but Webber have
committed to appearing at the Georgia Dome for tonight's NCAA
Championship to cheer on the Wolverines.
There may not be a Fab 5 reunion like Jalen Rose wanted, but C Webb has arrived to support the Wolverines.

Jalen Rose and Jimmy King spoke with the media at half time of the national championship in Atlanta about the Fab Five’s reunion at the Georgia Dome. Watch both players in the embedded media players below.
Apologies for the audio, it’s not exactly quiet in the Georgia Dome.
Former five-time NBA All-Star Chris Webber showed up at the
Georgia Dome just about the time Michigan's starting lineup was
being introduced before the Wolverines squared off against
Louisville in Monday's night's national championship game.
How could C Webb not being haunted by the timeout? The only thing I can equate it to, is the Bill Buckner error in the World Series.
It might even be worse, because it was compounded by the fact that Webber, was also involved in a scandal, that led to him being banned from the University, Michigan being put on probation, wins being vacated and the Fab 5 banners being taken down....
Jalen Rose joined Bill Simmons for Grantland’s “BS Podcast” on Sunday night, and the former Fab Fiver issued a plea to his former teammate, Chris Webber, in hopes of getting Webber to attend Monday night’s national title game between Michigan and Louisville.
“Hopefully, he’s not the only person that chooses not to participate in celebrating Michigan basketball being back...

On TNT's Thursday broadcast of the Thunder-Warriors game, the broadcast booth will have a completely different look: there won't be a play-by-play announcer as reported by USA Today.
Steve Kerr, Chris Webber, and Reggie Miller, all three of whom are analysts for NBA games on TNT, will be manning the booth, creating an innovative, interesting (and potentially disastrous...
