    Watched a few episodes from the 30 for 30 series, but this is my favorite, one of the best sports documentaries I've seen, up there with Hoop Dreams. Even if you're familiar with the Fab Five or college basketball in general, I encourage you to still check it out, very captivating stuff.

    Here's part 1, all 8 parts are on youtube.

    :( As of next yr Webber will finally be able to speak on UM again. I just hope he doesn't have bad feelings.

    Rose trying to get him to re-unite at the Championship was great to me.

    Remember being a kid watching these guys. Wore black Nike socks and all when I played because of it.

    Chris Webber with the Kings was one of my favorite players, he was perfect for that offense, and they had the best team, not just on paper, in 2000 but even Laker fans will admit, although they don't really have much of a choice, the Kings got screwed out of a title that year.

    What if Orlando never traded the pick, C-Webb and Shaq, best front-court of all time, multiple championships?

    And hah, I'm the only one that still wears white socks when I ball, even when I wear black shoes. But yeah, every baller at the rec and park wears medium Nike black socks now.

    -- just watched it all the way through.

    It's really weird how much I was influenced by them as a kid. Probably even more-so than Jordan.

    Had Jalen's sh** talking, but Webber's smile. Still to this day.

    It's only fitting they lost in back to back championship games and lost the way they did the second time.

    Yeah. True.

    But as Jalen said - what they did was better. Oddly enough.
