    I remember rooting for Duke and North Carolina to beat Michigan in the 1992 and 1993 title games.

    Chris Webber comes across as the bad guy -only one of the 5 who didnt collaborate on the doc.

    Even Walton wasn't eligable to play as a freshman.

    His UCLA freshman team beat an opp by 100 points.

    They were huge chokers. This Documentary was way too friendly & sympathetic towards them. All the whining about supposed Racism and Money made them look like whiny idiots. I really hate it when people try to spin the Racism angle. People disliked them because they were assholes. It had nothing to do with their race. Chris Webber was the biggest asshole of them all. He took all that cash while whining about how he didn't have any money. Then there was his Timeout call too. They were basically big mouthed greedy chokers in the end. This Documentary was way too biased in favor of them. It didn't tell the real story of the Fab 5.

    This Documentary should have been called 'Fab 5: Biggest Chokers in College Basketball History.' :)
