Juwan Howard is Fab Five's last hope for a significant title

By AnnArbor.com Staff

Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson are done playing basketball and all walked away from their college and pro careers without winning a championship.

Juwan Howard, the other member of the Fab Five that carried the Michigan basketball program to back-to-back Final Four appearances in 1992 and '93, is 38 years old and is a backup player for the Miami Heat. Howard and the Heat have to take care of business against the Chicago Bulls to reach the NBA Finals.

The "they never won anything" knock doesn't bother Howard, The Wall Street Journal reports. "The criticism hasn't annoyed me at all," Howard said. "They're right. We haven't won before."
