Jalen Rose Called Out Chris Webber On ESPN This Morning

Jalen Rose and Chris Webber may have worked well together on the court at Michigan, but the two certainly don't get along now.

The beef between Rose and Webber is related to the estranged relationship Webber has with Michigan, due to his involvement in the Ed Martin booster scandal that incurred NCAA penalties. However, Webber had said this week that he was working toward a reunion with his fellow "Fab Five" members, including Rose.

However, Rose's tone today on his ESPN show "Get Up" was not very warm. He implied that Webber was only trying to mend the relationship as a means of furthering his career.

"I'm not going to go back and forth through the media with this," Rose said. "I know that he's trying to reactivate his Hall-of-Fame candidacy, and he wants to put out a documentary, and he wants to sell a book. I get all of that.

"I don't need to talk about him to further my career.

"I don't sell out. I am not a media shill."

Well, that certainly doesn't seem like Rose has the warm and fuzzies about his former teammate. It is sad to see the frayed relationship Webber has with his alma mater and his fellow Fab Fivers.

No matter what went on on the past, those guys had such a major impact on college basketball.
