Name: The Importance of the Fab 5 In the Basketball Culture The fab five were a Michigan university basketball team. The team comprised of Juwan Howard Jimmy King Ray Jackson Jallen Rose and Chris Webber. This was a team of all African Americans that had just come from high school and started playing as a team for the Michigan Wolverines Men basketball team. They were the class of 1991 and they were able to reach the finals of the NCAA championships twice in 1992 and 1993. And boy could they the fab five ensured that the Michigan wolverine basketball team became one of the first collage programs to sign multimillion dollar deals with big brands. Last year for example the Michigan Wolverines signed a fifteen-year contract with Nike worth one hundred and seventy million dollars.
