Jalen Rose Explains How NBA Players Keep Wives & Girlfriends Separated At Games (Video)

Most of us have never lived the life of an NBA basketball star & its rare when you get some truly candid insight into the stuff that’s rarely ever talked about unless you speak to some of the players personally. (I’ve heard many interesting first-hand stories from NFL & NBA players I must say). While speaking with Bill Simmons on the Grantland podcast, former NBA star & current analyst Jalen Rose spoke on all the distractions that go on for NBA players. It goes without saying that some of the problems revolve around women. No matter the classification be it “wives”, “girlfriends”, “jump-offs”, or “road kill” they can all be uncomfortable distractions if you don’t know the rules & juggle them right. Hahaaaaa!

Storytime With Jalen Rose: Stealing Patrick Ewing’s Television (Video)

I’m enjoying these little known NBA stories that Jalen Rose has been dropping! They’re downright hilarious for multiple reasons from the mischievous way he tells them to all the compounding & humorous elements that take place each step of the way. In this particular segment, the former NBA star & current basketball analyst speaks about a time he had a little beef with Patrick Ewing when his ‘Detroit Instincts’ kicked it to get the better of the New York Knicks big man. Purrrrre hilarity.

Jalen Rose and Patrick Ewing never liked each other, so Jalen stole Patrick Ewing’s television. Not just any television either – a television with a VCR attachment.” – Grantland

ESPN’s Chris Broussard Speaks On Black Culture & The ‘Uncle Tom’ Comments From ‘Fab 5’ Doc (Video)


Chris Broussard broke this down very very well from start to finish. I understand where Jalen Rose & the rest of the Fab 5 were coming from in the documentary but they may not have explained it as eloquently as they should have or the documentary may have edited their thoughts somewhat due to time constraints. Who knows. In case you missed the ‘Fab 5’ documentary, which just so happened to break some ratings records when it aired last Sunday, you can check out the link below…..
