In case you missed it: ESPN 30 for 30 “The Fab Five”

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/21017076]

Yesterday ESPN released one of its best 30 for 30 documentaries to date, chronicling the University of Michigan’s “Fab Five” freshmen of the early 90s. The team included Jalen Rose, Chris Webber, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson. All five started and reached the national championship games in 1992 and 1993, their freshman and sophomore years. The video above is the first half of the documentary. Hit the jump to watch the remaining half.

What makes this 30 for 30 the best yet is the mix of player interviews, never-before-seen home footage, and Jalen Rose. Rose provides some of the most humorous commentary (such as “I thought Christian Laettner was an overrated p***y”). This ESPN doc is a must-watch for all sports fans.
