Jalen Rose could be heading from the basketball court to your television screen. ABC has greenlit a comedy pilot, “Jalen Vs. Everybody,” starring the former NBA star and ESPN personality, Variety has learned. The hot project hails from the team behind ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat.” Nahnatchka Khan wrote the pilot and will executive produce with Jake Kasdan, Melvin Mar and Mandy Summers. Aside from starring, Rose will also serve as a producer. Khan’s Fierce Baby banner is producing in association with 20th Century Fox Television and ABC Studios.
Foxx wasn’t the only one on the set who selected Kobe. Not surprisingly, Jalen Rose—who played a part in Kobe’s epic 81-point game in 2006—did, too. But Foxx provided his answer so quickly that, within just minutes, NBA fans were going in on him on social media for picking Kobe. They didn’t appreciate his explanation for choosing him, and they essentially told Foxx to stick to acting over talking hoops.
Q: How would you define Jackson’s time as Knicks president so far? Jalen Rose: He hit the reset button; signed Noah, traded for Rose to just see if they can make the playoffs. He’s changed the philosophy on the fly a couple of times and clearly this won’t have the ultimate success that Knicks fans crave. It is almost impossible for them to find an identity with all the roster and coaching turnover.
Q: What did you make of his “posse” comment? Jalen Rose: This isn’t the first time he mentioned it, but it’s the first time people are taking notice. He wrote about it in his book and how he would look back at the effect it had on LeBron, and he couldn’t have been more wrong. There was a level of elitism at play, not racism. The idea that this young player can’t take the future by his grasp and then be so wrong and yet double down, while your talking about a situation. For him to revisit the term, it was clearly meant in a demeaning way.
Rose said: “While personal politics in general can by a divisive topic. And for Donald Trump, during his candidacy, he became a polarizing candidate, which included along the way, insulting a lot of people. So those same people today as American citizens have to digest that he’s going to be the next president of the United States. How it’s going to affect sports? Unlike Tom Brady, when his team won the championship, and he chose not to go to the White House, saying it was a scheduling conflict when Barack Obama was in office. What we’re going to see in professional sports — NBA and NFL — mark my words, there will be players that decline the opportunity to visit the White House under his presidency.”
