I know that this is NCAA stuff and this is an NBA website, but I’m going to tell you about UNDRCRWN’s new UC Madness collection because: a) everyone loves the Fab Five b) it’s March and c) three of the five are still prominently involved in the NBA and one is still technically a current player. So it totally fits and it’s totally worth it because this stuff is great. You can’t tell me nothing.

The collection consists of a t-shirt, zipup hooded sweatshirt and a snapback which all pay tribute to how awesome these guys looked on the court. As Jalen Rose said on a recent podcast, they had the four S’s — shoes, shorts, socks and swag. You can see at least three of those things on every piece of this, and I’m guessing the swag part comes later. Personally, I think the hat is the best because you have to know what’s going on to get it, otherwise you’d probably think it’s some kind of weird fashiony Red Sox alternate. Thankfully, it’s not.

So yeah, as my mate Leigh Ellis might say, this stuff is gold. And I’m not just saying that as a Michigan fan, either. It’s impossible to downplay just how much the Fab Five changed basketball at every level and it’s the 20th anniversary of the last game they all played together, so why not celebrate with some gear? Just don’t get it from any shady boosters or else you’ll have to return it a few years later.

  1. That’s cool how schools can profit off these guys without giving them a single nickel

  2. On the snapback, National Champs 1983……x’ed out. Pretty spectacular.

  3. Those are pretty sweet. But they should have made a black shirt. Think that would sell better and the fab five pic would stand out more like the hoody.

  4. Just another opportunity to overstate the “impact” that team had on anything. And thankfully Jalen Rose is still in our lives at every basketball turn.

  5. It’s always interesting to me to see that people hate the fab-five so much that that are willing to take shots at them so many years later. Why is this an overstatement of their “impact”? It’s a tee-shirt.
