Still, though, given the nature of the transgression and the high-stakes situation in which it was committed, it struck Jacoby as curious that Rose and Bryant haven't had beef for years. "How has that not soured your relationship with him now?" Jacoby asks. "Because I know you guys are cool." Turns out there's a really simple explanation for that. "He never knew I did it on purpose," Rose answers. "But now he does." Luckily for Jalen, Kobe Bryant's not the type to hold a grudge. Yahoo! Sports

Jalen Rose doesn't take a liking to the nickname that he says the "lazy" media gave the U.S. women's gymnastics team. That would be the "Fab Five" which, as we know, was the nickname given to the five freshmen of the 1991 Michigan basketball team that competed for a national championship in consecutive years. But it was a nickname also widely used during the London Olympics while the women's gymnasts made their run toward a team gold medal. “To use the nickname just points and screams of lazy journalism by the national media, that’s really what it is,” Rose told 97.1's Jamie Samuelsen. “It’s no fault at all of the young gymnasts. But I really wish they would have come up with an even more creative tag for them and their gold medal pursuit.” Detroit Free Press

Bayless' ESPN co-host Jalen Rose, after a bit of research of his own, took on Skip after Bayless claimed that he started as a shot-happy point guard for a high school team that made the state finals in Oklahoma. Bayless didn't start for his high school squad, it turns out, and didn't even play for the varsity until his senior season, when he averaged 1.4 points per game. Here's the video of Rose calling a clearly uncomfortable Bayless out. Yahoo! Sports

Jalen didn't exactly do the digging himself. No, that was left to the fine folks at The Last Ogle, who found out that Bayless played only 15 of his teams 22 games during his senior year, and that no player on his squad scored fewer points than Bayless. Doesn't exactly sound like a shot-happy point guard that learned his lesson the hard way, as Bayless claimed. Even in trying to make himself look like a cautionary tale, he still lied to his half a million Twitter followers just to make a silly point to feed the daily gasbag that is his needless talk show.

Despite those indicators, there’s a big difference from thinking you can play NFL football and actually thriving in the league. It’s why former NBA player Jalen Rose and NFL player Warren Sapp both doubt that James could really play in the NFL. He’s a tremendous athlete, probably the best physical specimen you’ll see in sports,” Rose said earlier this week while serving as a guest panelist on the NFL Network’s No Huddle. “The one thing about football — you can go up for the football — I don’t think his feet’ll hit the ground on the way down because they will take him out. I think that game is too physical, I think it’s too demanding, I think that it’s hard to block defensive ends — it’s more to that job of being a tight end than just running routes.” San Antonio Express-News

In an on-camera interview with The Wall Street Journal, Rose described himself as motivated by his own struggles as a kid growing up in a poor neighborhood in Detroit, who sometimes had to “eat mayonnaise sandwiches” and “boil water to wash up.” Rose decided to start a school in his hometown because he was familiar with the challenges in the area. The school’s opening follows a series of high-profile controversies—including a brief stint in jail—that thrust Rose into the spotlight this year. He said the incidents and his responses to them have made him stronger as a man and a role model. Wall Street Journal

Rose said he’ll draw upon his own triumphs and setbacks to motivate his students to excel academically and steer clear of trouble. “I understand the importance of education,” he said in the interview with the Journal. “Now living in a global economy, with technology, if our students don’t have a diploma, a degree and a career—three of the three—they’re not going to be employed.” Wall Street Journal

Miami Heat forward Juwan Howard has phoned Chris Webber during the NBA Finals. He's sent text messages to Jalen Rose. Although their careers are at opposite ends, the conversation remains the same. Howard is not only in position to win a championship with the Heat, but also capture a trophy for one of college basketball's most celebrated teams. He is the last active member of Michigan's Fab Five, and stands just two victories from winning one for the group. The Heat trail the Dallas Mavericks 3-2 in the best-of-7 series. "You know what, if I win a championship, the family wins one," Howard said. "Because we're all like family. I know Jalen told you guys before the season started that if I win one, it's like he's going to win one. He's going to wear the ring, too." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Jalen Rose has his sights set on raising money for his academy and is reaching deep within his own pockets to make it happen. Next week, Rose will auction off one of the world’s last surviving 1969 Dodge Chargers from The Dukes of Hazzard TV show on eBay Motors. The car is part of his private collection. All proceeds will go to JRLA. BET News spoke briefly with the NBA vet about the auction, his legal troubles and his school. BET News: Tell us a little bit about the auction. Jalen Rose: I’m very excited being a Detroit native, I’m really into collecting cars and I have a pretty nice collection. One of the cars that was part of the collection is a 1969 Dodge Charger, one of the four original vehicles used on the popular television show Dukes of Hazzard. It’s signed by Rob Schneider who was Bo Duke on the show. On May 27, I’m going to auction that car off in order to create fundraising efforts for what I am trying to do at the school. BET

Let’s switch gears for a moment. As a former athlete, you are a role model for many kids. And you have so many fans. Are you worried at all about any of the impressions left from your DUI case? Rose: Not at all. The one thing about life, none of us is perfect. And it’s not what happens to you it’s what you do about it. And it was definitely a poor decision. I’m going to suffer the consequences, deal with it like a man and move on. But it doesn’t put me in a position to where I am ashamed, or, you know, my passion is not the same for my career or my life. I have to move forward and do what I got to do to give back to my community. BET
