Chris Webber And Jalen Rose Argue Via Talk Radio
Can the Fab Five just get along? Jalen Rose and Chris Webber are stirring up the pot on their 4-year-old sports beef, trading subliminal shots in separate appearances on sports talk radio earlier today. Via NYPost:
Chris Webber and Jalen Rose took their long-simmering feud to the next level Wednesday as they exchanged barbs through the media. The former Michigan stars have been at odds over Webber’s decision not to participate in the “30 for 30” documentary on their famous Wolverines team that aired in 2011.
“A lot of people… after they retire or they’re looking for a job or they want to be relevant … they go back in time and kind of… make sure their importance is really known… when one guy has a million highlights of himself … as if he was the leading scorer and all the stories are embellished, it’s hard for me,” Webber said on the “Dan Patrick Show” on Wednesday, according to Awful Announcing.
Webber’s words apparently infuriated Rose, who ripped the power forward in comments to Larry Brown Sports.
“One dude traveled then called timeout,” Rose said of Webber’s famous foible that cost Michigan a chance against North Carolina in the ’93 title game.
“One dude lied to grand jury and hasn’t apologized. One dude tried to circumvent the documentary to HBO. One dude ignored multiple requests from everyone involved after agreeing to participate. One dude played like (President) Obama and sat in a suite during Michigan’s recent title game. One dude slandered Ed Martin after all he did for him and his family. One dude is not in contact with the other four (which is all good). One dude has been doing a rebuttal doc for four years. One dude clearly is delusional and still in denial. Congrats on your amazing success! Respect had no price. Man up.”
These two STILL at it after all these years?! SMH. Whose side are you on?
