Jalen Rose calls Grant Hill an ‘Uncle Tom’

“I hated Duke and I hated everything Duke stood for. Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me. I felt like they only recruited black players that were Uncle Toms,” Rose said in the documentary.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Today, ESPN is running a 30-for-30 documentary on Michigan’s ‘Fab Five’, where Jalen Rose reportedly calls African-American players at Duke ‘Uncle Toms’.

Yes, ‘The Fab Five’ hasn’t played a game together in over a decade and a half, but they’re still controversial.

Personally, I don’t think it’s appropriate to comment on another race; however, I have included a link to Grant Hill’s response.
