And also because Jalen Rose kept it SO REAL when somebody asked him about Duke:
"Duke was the opposite of what we did," Rose said in the teleconference. "...It was like two forces of nature, like good versus evil. For me, Duke was personal. I hated Duke and I hated everything I felt Duke stood for. Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me. I felt like they only recruited black players that were Uncle Toms."
"I was jealous of Grant Hill. He came from a great black family, congratulations," Rose said. "Your mom went to college and was roommates with Hilary Clinton. Your dad played in the NFL, is a very well-spoken and successful man. I was upset and bitter that my mom had to bust her hump for 20-plus years. I was bitter that I had a professional athlete that was my father that I didn’t know."
I was already excited for ESPN's Fab Five documentary, but Jalen just kicked things into a whole 'nother gear. We might have to recalibrate the real-o-meter if he's going to be talking like that the whole time. You can also catch Jalen talking about mayonnaise sandwiches with Bill Simmons over here, and the documentary airs on Sunday on ESPN at 9. Get excited.
