Chris Webber says he will release book and documentary touching on Michigan, Fab Five and more ‘very soon

ESPN’s version of The Fab Five documentary, produced by Jalen Rose, was certainly powerful, but there was one voice missing: Chris Webber.

The leader of one of the most iconic teams in college basketball has decided to tell his own version of his life, NBA career, what happened at the University of Michigan and the Fab Five with his own book and documentary, which are coming soon.

Webber confirmed the news in Flint during an appearance at Mateen Cleaves’ “1 Goal, 1 Passion” basketball camp Thursday, Aug. 7.

Webber chose not to be involved the Fab Five film, but apparently he’s ready to put it all on the table now that his disassociation with the Michigan athletic department ended in 2013 after violating the NCAA’s rules of accepting money from booster Ed Martin. Both of Michigan’s Final Four appearances were also vacated, with the banners snatched from the rafters.

“You’re about to have a lot more to talk about, because I have a book that’s coming out this summer that’s going to tell the truth, because everything you’ve heard has been stories of writers that weren’t there or people that wanted to lie, so we’re going to shock the world with a book and a documentary,” Webber said.

“It’s very soon, I can’t announce it yet, we’re signing, but very soon and Mateen is actually going to be a big part of it because that’s my young boy and we had some good times in Sacramento, so we’re looking forward to it and hopefully it’s successful.”

Webber made his first appearance at a Michigan game in years for the 2013 national title game when Michigan took on Louisville at the Georgia Dome.

A C-Webb return to Crisler Arena could happen soon, too. He says it’s a possibility.

“We’ll see how that goes,” he said.
