Jalen Rose clears the Air

Former NBA star and Michigan Fab Five alum Jalen Rose cleared up some comments that he make regarding members of Duke University‘s basketball team, including Grant Hill. In the ESPN Films documentary, The Fab Five (which debuted Sunday night), Rose said Duke preferred to recruit “Uncle Tom” African Americans. As a result, Grant Hill fired back with a scathing column Wednesday in the New York Times.Rose clarified his statement, saying that the comment reflected how he felt as a high school basketball player, not as a mature 38-year-old.
