Jalen Rose: HE ON.

By Ramzy Nasrallah on February 5, 2013 at 6:25a

Following Indiana's win over Michigan, Jalen Rose - no stranger to hanging out in strange houses - hit an off-campus rager.

Dubious and wholly-unverifiable anecdotes from his evening:

  • “He seemed fairly confident that MJ was hungover in Game 5 of the ’97 Finals and didn’t actually have the flu”
  • “Joked how he couldn’t smoke weed because ‘man I work for Disney!! You don’t think they drug test us?’ ”
  • “He claimed he could hit 17 of 20 3s RIGHT THEN AND THERE, everyone howled and said no way, he just laughed and kept yelling ‘f*** ya’ll f*** ya’ll’ “
  • “5am rolls around and he gets asked what time his flight is to leave for New Orleans (for the Super Bowl) – ‘oh I dunno….about 2 and a half hours’ “

Seems like a fun guy to party with, but he's no Rumeal Robinson.

“He seemed fairly confident that MJ was hungover in Game 5 of the ’97 Finals and didn’t actually have the flu”

So a hungover MJ was better than a sober Utah team? His legendary status just increased.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Exactly. Regardless of the condition, MJ was otherworldly that night. Hung over or sick, the legend doesn't take a hit with this 'info', it grows.
44 Minues, 38 points, 7 boards, 5 assists, 3 steals, a block and the go ahead 3.

It's hard to go through life drunk and stupid.

Not for this joker!  I want everyone to have 2nd chances and be forgiven, but this guy is just something else.  Amazes me how the Fab Gabs are so revered now and this guy is on the Mickey Mouse station for both NCAA & NBA games.
Oh well, they should have asked him if the crack house was still standing that he was caught in, in lovely Detroit.  Dude knows how to party!

The reddit user who posted this is kind of a dick.
Jalen was cool enough to hang out with those birkenstock wearing turds and shoot the shit, and they go and plaster this all over the net...
Egregious Man Law violation.
This new generation is so uncouth.

Some people just can't sit back and appreciate being around someone famous (albeit not "that" famous for most kids these days) and not trying to work an angle on the internet to get more Twitter followers or get this on the news.

If you don't watch his videos on Grantland, you should check them out. He seems like a pretty down to earth guy.

Exactly what I was thinking.

He is a douchebag and a racist. Worst of all, he is a Wolverine.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

I was thinking he looked baked too, eyes are barely open.
