Jalen Rose Career

Basketball career

Rose, as a member of Southwestern High School in Detroit, where he competed with current NBA players Voshon Lenard and Howard Eisley, was a popular group and can even be seen at a high school All-American camp in the documentary film Hoop Dreams. In 1992 and 1993, Rose attended the University of Michigan, where the Wolverines won two NCAA Finals games, finishing as national runners up both times. Rose was one of Wolverines coach Steve Fisher's legendary 1991 recruiting class, dubbed the "Fab Five." He led the Fab Five in scoring in his freshman season, averaging 17.6 points per game, and set the school freshman scoring record with 597 total points. Rose was also their small forward and leader, despite being the most outspoken of the Fab Five. Although he did not win an NCAA title, he racked up 1700 points, 400 rebounds, 400 assists, and 100 steals. Any journalists began comparing Rose to his schoolboy hero Magic Johnson, who was 6-8 and playing as a versatile point guard. Rose was the only one not named as having received significant amounts of money before the grand jury (Robert Traylor, Webber, Rose, Maurice Taylor, and Louis Bullock) in the University of Michigan basketball fiasco.

Rose spent time with six different NBA franchises, amassing a solid pro career after missing his senior season in Michigan. In the 1994 NBA draft, he was ranked 13th overall by the Denver Nuggets. He was traded to the Indiana Pacers, Reggie Williams, and a future first round draft pick for Mark Jackson, Ricky Pierce, and a 1st round draft pick after two years with Denver.

Despite his successes in Indiana, he was not able to be accepted right away. DNPCDs were logged regularly by Rose (Did Not Play – Coach's Decision), under Coach Larry Brown. Rose also spoke out about the fact that he was being used as a back-guard and small forward over his preferred option, which was point guard. Rose didn't begin to blossom until Larry Bird took over coaching duties, eventually discovering that he was the best at small forward.

Rose helped the team get back to its feet after a rocky 1996-97 season and make it to three straight Eastern Conference Finals appearances as a member of the Indiana Pacers. Rose was the first player in eight years other than Reggie Miller to lead the Pacers in scoring in the 1999–2000 season, winning the NBA Most Improved Player Award for the first time in Pacers history. Rose continued to average 25 points per game in the six game series, with a 32-point effort in a game five victory. The Pacers also lost the series to the Los Angeles Lakers, but the Pacers eventually lost the series. In game 2, Rose intentionally placed his foot underneath Kobe Bryant, while Bryant was landing back to the ground after shooting a jump shot in an attempt to cause Bryant to injury (which Rose later admitted to intentionally doing). After landing on Rose's foot, Bryant will miss Game 3 of the season due to an injury.

Rose was traded to the Chicago Bulls along with Travis Best, Norman Richardson, and a future second round draft pick in exchange for Brad Miller, Ron Mercer, Ron Artest, and Kevin Ollie during the 2001–2002 season.

Rose and power forward Donyell Marshall and Lonny Baxter were traded to the Toronto Raptors in 2004-04 after 16 games.

Antonio Davis, a reunited with Larry Brown, his assistant for one year with the Indiana Pacers, was traded along with a first-round draft pick and an undisclosed sum of money (expected to be around $3 million) to the New York Knicks on February 3, 2006. The motivation behind this trade was likely to free up cap space (Rose earned over $16 million a year) and to enable the Raptors to bring in a veteran center who could replace some of Chris Bosh's returning to action. Rose's last game and appearance for the Raptors was a home victory over the Sacramento Kings, where he scored the winning basket in overtime.

Rose announced on November 3, 2006 that he would sign with the Suns. Rose had signed a one-year contract with Phoenix as a result of October 7. Rose retired from the NBA in 2007 with a career average of 14.3 points, 3.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game.

Post-NBA career and broadcasting

Rose spent time on TNT's Sideline Reporter in 2006. Rose has been working with ABC/ESPN since his retirement in 2007, first as an analyst on SportsCenter, and later as one of NBA Countdown's host. Rose has appeared on ESPN's Grantland.

Rose is the owner of Three Tier Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based management and production firm. Three Tier Entertainment, which was established in 2007, produces television and film scripts, as well as managing talent such as writers, actors, and screenplay writers. He created The Fab Five, an ESPN film made in 2011. Despite the resulting outrage that resulted in a string of media talks between members of the press, Michigan Wolverines men's basketball players, and Duke Blue Devils men's basketball players, the Fab Five received a 2.1 rating to become ESPN's highest rated documentary, according to Nielsen.

Rose published Got to Give the People What They Want in 2015, a memoir about his personal life. It's a New York Times Bestseller and ranked No. 1 on the list of Michigan Notable Books from 2016. With David Jacoby, he co-hosts Jalen & Jacoby, a national US sports radio show on ESPN Radio, as of 2021. Rose has been a contributing analyst on Get Up!, a three-hour morning sports talk show on ESPN, since April 2018.

Rose also has a multi-platform relationship with the New York Post, where he produces a podcast and weekly column under the name Renaissance Man.

NBA career statistics

Rose, a left-handed defender, was known to have a smooth and versatile offensive game, and she was especially gifted as a scorer from the perimeter or the post. Rose was employed in three different capacities throughout his career. He began his career as a Denver Nuggets point guard before becoming a shooting guard/small forward for the Indiana Pacers. He then returned to the Toronto Raptors' point guard job for a short time. However, he was most efficient as a small forward or swingman during his time in college. Rose, also for his height, was a good passer, and Indiana used him as a point forward often. Rose's best defensive stopper on Michael Jordan in the Eastern Conference Finals in 1997-1998, but the Bulls lost the series in seven games, not known for his defense. Rose has been regarded as a team leader, particularly under head coach Larry Bird, after Thomas cut former Fab Five teammate Jimmy King on the last day in the Pacers' locker room during his feud with the coach at the time, Isiah Thomas.

While in Toronto, Rose also clashed with Raptors coach Sam Mitchell, who suspended a struggling Jalen early in the 2005–06 season in favour of rookie Joey Graham.

Rose's Player Efficiency Rating climbed more than three points (to 13.7) in the ensuing months, while others received 12.1 points, 2.5 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game. Despite that, he only shot 44% from the field and 27 percent from three-point range, with a 51.4 percent shooting percentage in 46 games.

Rose was awarded the Professional Basketball Writers Association's Magic Johnson Award in 2003. In 2013, Jalen was inducted into the Detroit High School Hall of Fame in 2013 and the Michigan Basketball Hall of Fame in 2017. Rose was inducted into the American Basketball Hall of Fame in his hometown of Detroit in 2019.

Mike Breen, the award-winning NBA announcer, is still reeling from the news that his long-time broadcast partners Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy were fired amid ESPN's mass layoffs. We really felt we had something special, but after 15 NBA Finals with Van Gundy and Jackson, we were able to do it a lot longer than anyone ever did.' Breen told The New York Post's Andrew Marchand, 'It's sad because we're dead.' We'll all love it, but we just wish it was a little longer.' 'You shouldn't expect it because it was such a great team and that getting it all broken up was a surprise.' In late June, Van Gundy was let go, but Jackson was fired on Monday as ESPN continues to cut payroll. Jalen Rose, Suzy Kolber, Max Kellerman, and Keyshawn Johnson are among the on-air hosts who have been laid off this summer. However, no move has drew as much attention as ESPN's decision to break up its renowned announcing trio of Breen, Jackson, and Van Gundy, who began working together in 2006.
