Cole Bajema, 4-star for 2019, reaffirms commitment to MI basketball


Speaking on ESPN's morning show Get Up!, Rose publicly proclaimed that Howard's hiring will reunite the Fab Five of Rose, Chris Webber, Howard, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson despite years of friction between Michigan's famed 1991 recruiting class. "There will be no disrespect", Rose said.

It's good to see one of the most outspoken members of the Fab Five taking this stance.

Howard's wife shot down claims that another account belonged to Howard, and the University of MI announced his official account Friday morning. Aside from being a part of that prolific college basketball team, Howard is a two-time NBA champion with the LeBron James-led Miami Heat.

"We're not going to bring that to Ann Arbor's campus with Juwan Howard as our head coach", Rose said. Rose fired back and said he didn't need to talk about Webber to further his career.

Let's wait and see if Howard brings winning ways to MI to make this honeymoon period last, otherwise it could be back to business as usual.

Howard went into coaching after retiring as a player, starting as an assistant coach focused on player development with the Heat being promoted to an assistant coach with one of the franchises he played for during his 19-year career. "I think it is a great step forward for him and the university, and I wish him nothing but the best, because that's what he's given us".

"We're going to move as a family and we're going to do what we can to build on what John Beilein has established in Ann Arbor".

Jalen Rose said that Juwan Howard's hiring as MI coach would resolve longstanding tension within the Fab Five, specifically between him and Chris Webber.
