Coach K Discusses “Uncle Tom” Controversy, Says Fab Five “Didn’t Establish Anything” At Michigan

(By Brad Cohen, SportsGrid) - Hey, remember when Jalen Rose called black Duke players “Uncle Toms” in the Fab Five documentary? And then a media firestorm ensued? For like two weeks? And then 'finally' it seemed like it ended?

Well, it was. Until today. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski went on “The Waddle Silvy Show” when former Dukie Jay Williams was co-hosting, and was asked about the incident. He said he didn’t want to discuss Rose’s comments … and then he immediately discussed Rose’s comments.

Coach K talked about how insulting the comments were, the decisions not to recruit any Fab Five member besides Chris Webber, and how the Fab Five “didn’t establish anything” at Michigan.

Listen to Krzyzewski’s comments below:
