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.” Boston Globe

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. HoopsHype

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. HoopsHype

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.'

HoopsHype: Thoughts? @JalenRose http://bit.ly/1smL63v Jalen Rose: @hoopshype Which other Fab-Five members will be participating? Where will it air? #yawn Twitter @JalenRose

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. Booth Newspapers

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.” NBA.com

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." 247Sports.com

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. Los Angeles Daily News

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.

Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose of the Grantland Network do not want to hear that, though. They say Rondo is long gone almost as soon as other teams see that he can still walk. “Clairvoyant Bill thinks Rajon Rondo has 20 games or less left as a Boston Celtic,” Simmons tells Rose in their Celtics preview video. “This is why we give the people what they want,” Rose replies, later adding that “he will be traded.” “What you just described is the worst-kept secret in the NBA,” Rose goes on. “Once you trade Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, the year before [you lose] Ray Allen, you lose Doc Rivers, the next obvious domino is Rajon Rondo.” Simmons concludes by saying, “Don’t leave one room in the blown-up house and be like, ‘Nah, I’m going to keep the living room.’ You blow up the house.” NESN.com
