Rose Says Chris Webber Should Make Amends With Michigan, Apologize

Jalen Rose

Chris Webber’s NCAA-mandated, 10-year dissociation with the University of Michigan ended last year, but the “Fab Five” star has yet to make amends with the maize and blue. And according to ex-teammate Jalen Rose, Webber is doing a massive disservice to all those involved during their infamous but storied time in Ann Arbor by refusing to bury the hatchet. Read More »

The NBA has been a big man’s league for a long time, dating all the way back to George Mikan and Bill Russell.

Derrick Rose

If you watched the NCAA tournament this past weekend, you had the chance to witness that the best teams do not always win. We saw Duke lose to a 14-seeded Mercer team that destroyed all of our brackets, while also witnessing Kansas, Ohio State, Syracuse, North Carolina and Wichita State all fall early.
