Fab Five Continues to Disappoint UM Fans
First it was Chris Webber's phantom time-out vs North Carolina in the 1993 Final Four game. Then the premature abandonment of the University of Michigan Basketball Program by the headliners of the group, Webber and Jalen Rose. Next, the final four banners were removed from Chrysler Arena due to the Ed Martin booster scandal.
This month, it's two criminal convictions right here in Oakland County; one for Jalen Rose, who's doing 20-days in the Oakland County Jail on a sentence from 48th District Judge Kim Small; the other is for charges of felony child support against Jimmy King. According to the Michigan Attorney General, King owes nearly $18,000 in child support arrears. He was arrested in Detroit.
Both men are currently detained in the OCJ.
Attorney General Bill Schuette was quoted in the Detroit Free Press as saying, "when it comes to child support, no matter who you are, you have to play by the rules."
It's a shame that these men have never played by the rules; it's a shame that they continue to cast a pall over the University of Michigan.
