A media star that’s not even on TV right now has been voted by HoopsHype as the preeminent TV personality when it comes to NBA basketball. Bill Simmons, who recently ended his tenure with ESPN and Grantland and has been a no-show during the NBA playoffs, beat friend Jalen Rose in the final of our NBA TV bracket.
Later on Wednesday, Rose responded to Webber’s interview with some comments to Larry Brown Sports. “One dude traveled then called timeout. One dude lied to grand jury and hasn’t apologized. One dude tried to circumvent the documentary to HBO. One dude ignored multiple requests from everyone involved after agreeing to participate. One dude played like (President) Obama and sat in a suite during Michigan’s recent title game. One dude slandered Ed Martin after all he did for him and his family. One dude is not in contact with the other four (which is all good). One dude has been doing a rebuttal doc for four years. One dude clearly is delusional and still in denial,” Rose said of Webber in messages to Larry Brown Sports. “Congrats on your amazing success! Respect had no price. Man up.”
Earlier in the day, Webber, now an analyst for Turner Sports, joined “The Dan Patrick Show” and said he “wasn’t too thrilled” with the film, which was put together largely by Rose and the other three members of the Fab Five, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson. Webber said he was only given a call about participating in the film about a week before they were set to wrap. King disputed this claim, and so does Rose. Webber also took some not-so-subtle shots at Rose by saying the former point guard was “Hollywood” and wanted to make the film all about himself.
Tonight on “The Grantland Basketball Hour” the trio of Bill Simmons, Jalen Rose and Ryen Russillo unveiled and discussed the final 25 players on Simmons long running NBA Trade Value list. And for the first time since 2006 someone other than LeBron James was named number one. Anthony Davis. The case for Davis is easy to make. At just 21 Davis is already one of the three best players in basketball. Unlike most of the other guys in the conversation Davis is still on his rookie deal, meaning that even when his extension does kick in, in the coming years he still will be making less money than most great players.
Doris Burke is one of the best basketball players in Providence history, so yeah, of course she’s got dribbles, but note that she’s doing this *in high heels*
Your 30 for 30 discussed the NCAA’s decision to vacate the Fab Five’s wins because Webber took loans from Jalen Rose: Detroit businessman Ed Martin. Did you know what was going on? Jalen Rose: I introduced Chris to Ed Martin. So of course I knew what was going on. Ed Martin – who I love, rest in peace, and I love his wife, as well – was giving back to the community 10 years before I came along. Me and Chris decided we were going to the University of Michigan at Ed Martin’s house. All Chris had to do was tell [the grand jury] the truth. That’s why I’m not mentioned in any of that. I told the truth.
Are you still in touch with the members of the Fab Five? Jalen Rose: I won’t go into family business, but I’ll say what’s public. Right now me and Chris [Webber], we’re not necessarily seeing eye-to-eye. He felt like I should have done a couple of things differently, and I felt like he should have done a couple of things differently. He should have been in the Fab Five documentary. It would have been a great opportunity for him to tell the story unfiltered. He chose not to do that. I’m pretty sure he’s kicking himself in the butt because he wasn’t in it.
The key, Rose said, is that looming decision with Rondo. “I think it’s going to be crucial what happens with Rondo,” Rose said. “They have to turn him into a player [through trade] and/or a few players that are going to be multi All-Stars. Once you’re able to do that and you’re a winner again then people always want to try to play for a winner.”
Jalen Rose: It ain’t just about you. It’s about the players, it’s about the coach. Steve Fisher coached in three finals and won a championship in Michigan. You go in that campus, his name is nowhere. So it’s bigger than just him. And the fans deserve it, the history of the University of Michigan deserves it. And all he had to do is say two words. It’s not brain surgery. They are ‘I’m sorry.’
When was the last time you spoke with Chris Webber? Jalen Rose: I heard through mutual friends that he’s upset that I said that I feel like he should have come out and apologize for some transgressions that happened at the University of Michigan. But I still stand behind that. Also I’m disappointed how the relationship with [Michigan booster] Ed Martin ended. Ed, unfortunately, in my opinion basically died of a broken heart. So while we’re still brothers and I hope that we’re going to make amends… One of the great things of being teammates and friends is we should be able to speak openly and honestly. And hopefully he finds a way to realize and apologize about what happened in Michigan.
How do you feel about the new Fab Five documentary Chris Webber is going to do? Jalen Rose: It’s not a legitimate documentary if the other four guys don’t participate.

Anthony Smith: @JalenRose @hoopshype hope you guys end up being boys again. Life’s too short. Jalen Rose: @antsmith777 Agreed. I’m not upset, whining or pouting about anything. Too blessed. #respect

ESPN’s version of The Fab Five documentary, produced by Jalen Rose, was certainly powerful, but there was one voice missing: Chris Webber. The leader of one of the most iconic teams in college basketball has decided to tell his own version of his life, NBA career, what happened at the University of Michigan and the Fab Five with his own book and documentary, which are coming soon. Webber confirmed the news in Flint during an appearance at Mateen Cleaves’ “1 Goal, 1 Passion” basketball camp Thursday, Aug. 7.
So here’s the son now, reaching out with both arms, one to yesterday, one to today, as the NBRPA’s newly appointed “ambassador.” The role, to be announced Tuesday, will enable Rose to shape programs for former players while recruiting and enlisting the help of the younger guys. His goal: seamlessness. “It’s a family,” Rose told NBA.com last week in a phone interview. “I really don’t see a disconnect between the two. Now there’s always going to be the mentality that, the older you get, the longer the walk looks. “But for the most part, I think there’s a healthy respect in the current players for the retired players and what they’ve done. Hopefully we can create some awareness, some planning, a decision-making mechanism from top to bottom – whether it’s social, emotional or financial – so you’re prepared for that next step.”
John Calipari filled the last remaining spot on his basketball staff at Kentucky Friday when the school named former Auburn coach Tony Barbee as special assistant to the head coach. But interestingly, on the Jalen and Jacoby podcast July 25, ESPN analyst and former NBA player Jalen Rose would neither confirm nor deny rumors that he was contacted by Kentucky to fill one of those vacancies. “I plead the fifth,” Rose said. “But what I will say, I have a terrific job. It would have to be a special opportunity.”
Amid all the unanswered questions who the Lakers will hire as their next head coach and when, two team sources strongly disputed that any delay stems from waiting out to see if Clippers coach Doc Rivers will become available because of embattled owner Donald Sterling prolonging a costly litigation battle. ESPN’s Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose each brought up that prospective theory on why the Lakers have gone three months without hiring a coach since Mike D’Antoni’s resignation on April 30. Clippers interim Chief executive Dick Parsons also testified in court Tuesday that Rivers does not want to continue to coach if Sterling still owns the team next season.
In an interview with Reese Waters of Bleacher Report, Grant Hill has his theory as to why Duke is so hated by some: “We’ve had a lot of really good white players, I think that plays a role.” He also notes how most of the fans in the stands are white, calling it “white on white hate.” Jalen Rose, a couple of years ago, had a different interpretation of why he hated Duke.
A woman who eluded Texas authorities for nearly four decades and who was arrested this week in Michigan is former basketball star Jalen Rose’s sister-in-law. The former Indiana Pacers and Michigan Wolverines star confirmed that Kathlyn Regina Huff is married to his brother, Kevin Rose, The Detroit News reported.
Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores is donating $250,000 to support the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy. The funding announced Tuesday from Tom and Holly Gores aims to boost the growth and development of the public charter high school in Detroit. The money is expected to be used for infrastructure improvements, personnel recruitment and retention, and other needs. The school was founded by former NBA player Jalen Rose. After playing at the University of Michigan as part of the Fab Five, Rose played for six teams during a 13-year NBA career, including six years with the Indiana Pacers.

In addition to signing a contract extension with ESPN, Sage Steele has accepted the host’s role for the network’s “NBA Countdown” pregame show. Steele replaces Michael Wilbon, who will focus more on his “Pardon The Interruption” show. She will work the Friday and Sunday editions on the shown on ESPN and ABC. Returning analysts Jalen Rose and Bill Simmons will be joined by new hire Doug Collins.
