Jalen Rose gets 20 days in Jail for DUI, keeping ESPN gig?

A Michigan judge has sentenced former NBA guard Jalen Rose to serve 20 days in jail for a drunken driving crash along a snowy suburban Detroit road in March.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Hopefully, this saga is over.

Last spring former NBA and college star turned ESPN analyst Jalen Rose was arrested for drunk driving in Detroit, but didn’t tell the broadcaster because he thought they might not air his 30-for-30 documentary The Fab Five.

Today, Rose learned he’ll spend 20 days in jail for the offense. He’ll begin serving his sentence on Tuesday. And it seems he’ll keep his gig with ESPN, too.

Ironically, a theme of The Fab Five doc’ was that Rose and his teammates (Chris Webber aside) had grown into adulthood and were making good decisions despite their tough circumstances.

It seems this is a lesson Rose still has to learn -the hard way.
