He’s the person who pulls people together, who rallies people — both with those he works with on-air, but also with the folks behind the scenes. He’s strong in his convictions about right and wrong, both when everyone is watching and — more importantly, I think — when almost no one is watching. Jalen is really a conscience of ESPN.”
