Last Chance At Ring For Juwan Howard, Fab Five

We all know how important a victory in tonight's game five of the NBA Finals is for LeBron James, but everyone is forgetting how important it is for Juwan Howard.

HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: Don't think for a second that a Heat victory tonight doesn't mean a lot to Jalen Rose, Jimmy King, Ray Jackson and Chris Webber.

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.

Jalen Rose apologizes for DUI, suspended by ESPN

ESPN has suspended NBA analyst Jalen Rose from the airwaves as a result of his March 11 DUI arrest. His name came under scrutiny again after it was revealed he was arrested in Detroit on the suspicion of drunken driving after he was involved in a single-car accident in a Detroit suburb.  A Detroit news station broke the story weeks after Rose’s arrest and before ESPN leaving questions as to whether or not Jalen Rose reported the incident to his ESPN bosses.

 

"I apologize to my family, my employer and each and every one of my supporters for my lapse in judgment. I am particularly sorry for disappointing those who trust me to serve as a role model for young people. I accept full responsibility for my actions and look forward to a resolution of the legal matter as soon as possible."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Unfortunately, Jalen Rose’s apology rings a bit hollow.

If he was truly sorry, he’d have admitted his lapse to ESPN before a Detroit news station broke the story. But Rose was worried about the impact on his Fab’ Five documentary, which was scheduled to air as part of ESPN's 30-for-30 series.

Rose has talent. He’s personable and isn’t afraid to speak his mind –regardless of what others think. Hopefully, he exercises better judgment going forward, and we can hear and watch him on-air again soon.
