For years, Jalen Rose and Chris Webber haven't gotten along. They refused to talk to and about each other after Webber was caught in the middle of Michigan's 'Fab Five' scandal.
Now, however, it seems like they're finally ready to leave the past where it belongs and reunite, as Jalen Rose took a step forward by congratulating his former friend and teammate on his induction into the Hall of Fame class of 2021.
Rose interviewed the Sacramento Kings legend, who admitted to being shocked about his congratulations, but was happy and humbled about his words, especially after such an eventful week in which he also parted ways with TNT:
“Well, thank you, brother, I don’t know, J. I’m still shocked. My father’s very happy, so that makes me happy. My mothers happy, and It’s just a moment of being grateful, just thankful. I’m just thankful to all the people and the family members and friends and family that’s been around. I’m just in shock. I really don’t know what to say," Webber said.
Rose once again showed his willingness to squash the beef and congratulated Webber on this long-overdue accomplishment:
“I love you, my brother. Congratulations. You made it to the Hall of Fame. Well deserved," Rose added.
“Jalen Anthony Rose, it’s crazy, man. And thank God for your beautiful, wonderful mother, [because] you know what she did for me," Webber replied.
Michigan's Fab Five were one of the most dominating and entertaining squads in NCAA basketball history, featuring Ray Jackson, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King, and the aforementioned Chris Webber, and Jalen Rose.
It's great to see that these two players and friends were able to put their differences aside once and for all. There's no room for beef in this community, and they're both bigger and know better than that.
