Despite how much success members of the Fab Five have had on the basketball court over the years, not one member of the famed recruiting class had won a title in college or the NBA -- until Thursday night, that is.â†µ
Juwan Howard may not have played much at all during the Miami Heat's run to the NBA title -- in the NBA Finals, he only actually played the final three minutes of Game 5 -- but he will be getting a ring. After a long, long wait (see below), one member of the Fab Five finally has a championship.
Fab Five played 3,575 games and 116,165 minutes since 1991. None won a Big Ten, NCAA or NBA title until Juwan Howard tonight, as a backup.â†µ— Stephen J. Nesbitt (@stephenjnesbitt) June 22, 2012
It's really fitting that Howard was the one to end the run of no college or NBA titles for the Fab Five. After all, he was the first member of the Fab Five to sign with Michigan, and he is the lone member of the Fab Five still playing in the NBA, as pointed out by Nick Baumgardner.â†µ
Juwan Howard started the Fab Five era -- only appropriate he finish it.â†µ— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) June 22, 2012
It's certainly tough to root for the Miami Heat, but as a Michigan fan, you have to feel good for Juwan Howard for finally getting a ring.
