Jalen Rose Doesn’t Like US Gymnasts Being Called the Fab 5
I tend to agree with Jalen, maybe not as strongly as he puts it, but the media was a little lazy labeling them that. When you think of the Fab 5 in ten years, you aren’t going to think of the Olympic Gymnasts.
They deserved their own name.
“To use the nickname just points and screams of lazy journalism by the national media, that’s really what it is,” Rose told Jamie Samuelsen of 97.1 FM in Detroit. “It’s no fault at all of the young gymnasts. But I really wish they would have come up with an even more creative tag for them and their gold medal pursuit.”
