What a coincidence that a documentary about the Fab Five is programmed right after ESPN’s Selection Sunday of superfluous special programming.
What a coincidence that the documentary features five college athletes who competed in the NCAA Tournament, but, admittedly, never walked away with the trophy.
What a coincidence that the film discusses the exploitation, or glorification depending on who you talk to, of college athletes. Especially during a time where names like Cam Newton, AJ Green, or even a lesser known Enes Kanter, have graced our headlines not for their statistical accomplishments, but for their alleged misdoings as an amateur athlete.
What a coincidence that Jalen Rose, a member of the Fab 5, is now a member of another well known mega-team. And wouldn’t you know it? That same mega-team is putting their employee front and center to enjoy some more exposure after a somewhat forgettable NBA career.
And what a coincidence that Chris Webber, undoubtedly the most talented and troubled individual this film profiles, has politely declined to be a part of it.
