The most intriguing thing about the documentary to me was the part when Mitch Albom was discussing Chris Webber and suggesting that he never felt comfortable with the overall personna of the Fab Five and and struggled with "fitting in" with that. I also thought it was interesting how Rose compared playing in a Prep school league versus playing in the public school league (by the way, that intentional foul they showed was vicious).

I will say that Webber was perhaps the most talented player I've seen during the last thirty years. He put up 51 pts and 26 rebounds one night in the NBA and had so many eye-popping stat lines. Like other posters, I wonder what his career would have been like had he come to Duke. First, imagine the 92 team with Webber, Laettner, Hurley and Hill. Imagine the 93 team with Parks, Webber, Hill and Hurley. I also can't help but think his NBA career would might have been different, although he did face a lot of injuries.
