Their swaggy style and attitude intertwined well with the emerging Hip-Hop culture in the ’90s, as they are primarily known for starting the baggy shorts, black socks, and black sneakers trend on the basketball court.
The Fab Five only played together for 2 seasons but certainly made the most of it, posing a 56-12 record and completing back-to-back National Championship appearances.
The University of Michigan ended up making a boatload of money off the Fab Five’s jerseys, ticket sales, and other merchandise. On the other hand, the players themselves were never allowed to profit financially off of their name, image, or likeness, as the school did.
Years after the Fab Five graduated from Michigan, the Wolverines were stripped of all the basketball accolades and accomplishments they tallied during the 1991-1993 seasons. This came from the back end of an FBI investigation on Ed Martin, a man who loaned half of a million dollars, in total, to Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, and a few others.
