Jalen Rose Blasts Chris Webber For Lying About Taking Money In College And Hurting Steve Fisher’s Legacy

Jalen Rose is pissed at former Fab Five teammate Chris Webber.

In an interview with ESPN, Rose blasted Webber for “lying to the grand jury” and derailing former Michigan coach Steve Fisher’s chances to reach the hall-of-fame


“He absolutely deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and if it doesn’t happen, it goes back to where he was implicated in something he was not guilty of,” Rose told ESPN.com referring to Fisher, who retired last week after 18 seasons as coach at San Diego State.

“Chris Webber didn’t own what he did and still hasn’t apologized, and there’s been a lot of collateral damage because of that, the number one person [affected by that collateral damage] being Steve Fisher. He wasn’t the person who lied to the grand jury. He’s not the person not choosing to apologize or reconcile any of that. Yet what he accomplished doesn’t get recognized.”
