The New York Post announced a multiplatform partnership with Jalen Rose that spans a weekly column, video and podcast series called “The Renaissance Man.” The media personality, author, philanthropist, former NBA player and founder of the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy will launch the multiplatform content program with the NYP this fall. It’s the first content partnership of this kind for the newspaper. “Rose will share anecdotes and lessons learned throughout his NBA career and beyond, and will relate them to current events and themes,” according to a statement from the NYP.
Jalen Rose, ESPN analyst and 13-year NBA veteran: “I have never compared a player to [Larry Bird] until now. … In the modern game, if he was facing the floor as the primary ball handler, he would look like Luka.” Mark Jackson, former NBA player and coach and current broadcaster: “To me, Luka Doncic is an absolute combination of Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.”
This will be the seventh straight year that Platinum Equity, the firm Gores founded in 1995, will sponsor the Jalen Rose Golf Classic, the annual fundraiser for the school located in the northeast Detroit neighborhood where Rose grew up. Hosted by the Detroit Golf Club on Sunday and Monday, the event will follow the club’s social distancing guidelines and protocols as the world still copes with the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be the 10th time celebrities and politicians will come together to help the school’s mission to provide an educational lifeline that starts in the ninth grade and lasts through college.
It’s support that Rose finds even more relevant now with big business trying to find the right words and actions to address decades of systemic racism in this country. “You see corporations and companies sending out e-mails and promising to be more diverse, and how they are open to make change and to listen,” Rose said. “At 47, I’ve heard that my whole life, but then there are some people that actually step up and do it. That’s what Tom and Holly was able to do with JRLA. And that support has been there since day one. Whether it’s donating so we can get some of the things done at JRLA, but also sponsoring our golf outings and bringing other relationships to the table that either become donors or people that show support in another way, it’s major.”
For Arn Tellem, who joined the Pistons in 2015, it’s an easy cause to support. He has known Rose since his playing days, when he served as Rose’s agent. Tellem had an inkling Rose’s social awareness would lead to his focus on education. “The thing that always impressed me about him was that he had a social conscience, wanted to give back to Detroit, wanted to make a difference in his hometown,” Tellem said. “He recognized the platform that he had to do good things, he didn’t run away from it. Jalen has been one of the leaders making a difference in this community for a long time.”
