ANN ARBOR (WWJ) – Ahead of Monday night’s Michigan game, a lot of talk off the court has centered around a possible Fab Five reunion — featuring the starters from the 1993 team that lost the title game.
Speaking live on WWJ Newsradio 950, Jimmy King, a point guard from the 1992 and 1993 teams, said at least four of them will be together in the stands at the Georgia Dome.READ MORE: Stellantis, Samsung Plan Indiana Electric Car Battery Plant
“I’ve talked to my other fab teammates — Jaylan [Rose], Juwan [Howard] and Ray [Jackson] will be there,” said King. “I have not talked to Chris [Webber], but we have reached out to him and we hope that he will show up as well.”
Webber, who lives in Atlanta, is still banned from the U-M program until next month as a part of the school’s sanctions stemming from the Ed Martin scandal.READ MORE: 'MI Kids Back On Track' Plan Introduced To Expand Tutoring For Michigan Students
“There’s only been one other time that we’ve been together — in 2003, that was the last time all five of us [were] together,” said King. “But the five of us together in this atmosphere hasn’t happened in 20 years, in New Orleans. So it would be a great feeling.”
Offering some advice to the current Wolverines, King said the best thing they can do at this point is try to relax.
“Be yourselves; enjoy this moment — it’s a once in a lifetime thing. Go about your business as usual; do not change your routine,” said King. “The only difference between now and the rest of the season is that there’s only two teams standing.”MORE NEWS: Detroit Incinerator To Be Demolished This Year
