Just saw this on ESPN
Things not going well for old Jalen. Hope K's comments didnt' send him over the edge.
I hope the members of this community -- and, more critically, divine higher powers -- will forgive my pettiness and non-compassion. However, given Rose's recent self-serving and myopic anti-Duke statements in the Fab Five, I hope he receives the FULL penalties accorded to this crime (if he is legitimately found guilty).
I expect he'll blame it on Grant Hill.
What goes around comes around....
Does this deserve comment or a thread? no.
Jalen, better get a smart lawyer.
Maybe a Dukie?
Karma, she is a beotch.
I think this is more about Espn than Rose. They are no longer a news organization, they are an entertainment org like the WWE or People mag. They dont just report the news, they manufacture stories, hide stories and prolong stories to their benefit.
How many times am I supposed to get sucked into them reporting what Andy Katz tweeted (woah, he tweeted a major scoop!?) or how Jerry Rice did on Dancing with the Stars or Mike Golic did on All My Children before I swear off SportsCenter forever? I think I'll stick to EspnNews and game telecasts from here on out.

Didn't JJ get a DUI shortly after graduation? Can happen to anyone (almost).
First of, it doesn't say what his BAC was in that article. If it were something low, like the amount one could get after 1-2 beers, then people should be cutting him some slack, cause that situation could happen to anyone. Who here has driven after having a 1-2 drinks after work, after a game, after a party, etc when your clearly not drunk, but your BAC may be at the limit? And yes, even our beloved JJ was not immune to this, so despite how some feel about Jalen after his comments, I would advise people not to play the holier than thou card...
There isn't much more to be said on this that would be appropriate for this board.
I saw this posted on ESPN today:
Was going to post this in the Jalen Rose thread, but it's closed. I'm sure everyone + mods would appreciate it if we just kept this one strictly on-topic!
I think it's pretty stand-up for ESPN to post this- they certainly didn't have to. Jalen apparently didn't tell ESPN until it was about to be aired by a local Detroit TV station.
