February 5th, 2013, 7:18 AM
In his second career as a media personality for ESPN, former Michigan star Jalen Rose has developed a reputation for being one of the most entertaining and unfiltered storytellers in the business, according to Lost Lettermen, a college basketball blog.
As a handful of Indiana students discovered following Saturday nights Michigan-Indiana game in Bloomington, thats not an act. Thats Roses personality.
According to those aforementioned students, all of whom contributed to a Reddit thread on Rose, the former Michigan star and NBA journeyman stayed up with them until 5:00 AM Sunday morning hanging out and talking basketball. This despite the fact that he had an early morning flight to catch to New Orleans for the Super Bowl.
Among the anecdotes he allegedly shared with the awestruck students, according to one Redditor:
He seemed fairly confident that MJ was hungover in Game 5 of the 97 Finals and didnt actually have the flu
On Reggie Millers house burning down in 1997: He is SURE [ex-wife] Marita Miller burned down Reggies house
He kept asking how the hell you work a bong and after getting chirped for it, he goes PLEASE. black people only use pipes if theyre smoking crack.'"
