Current ESPN/ABC studio analyst and former 13-year NBA veteran, Jalen Rose is one of a select group of professional athletes who were able to maintain a high profile post-retirement. Long known for his post-game quotes and great relationship with the media, Jalen proceeds to show his versatility in the broadcast booth, in the entertainment world, and as a philanthropist.
Rose’s most memorable NBA moments during his 13-year career include winning the NBA’s “Most Improved Player” and “Player of the Week” awards in 2000 and “Eastern Conference Player of the Week” accolades in 2005. As a part of the Indiana Pacers team, he appeared in three straight eastern conference finals including a trip to the NBA Finals in 2000.
Only few basketball stars make the transition to the small screen after they hang up their basketball kicks. Rose made the bold leap in the midst of his NBA career in 2001, becoming a multifaceted reporter and on-air personality for Fox Sports Net’s famed Best Damn Sports Show Period. Working with the Best Damn Sports Show Period for six years, the budding broadcast star developed his own lifestyle-oriented “Jammin’ With Jalen” segment.
As a philanthropist who truly gives from the heart, Rose established The Jalen Rose Foundation/Charitable Fund to create life-changing opportunities for underserved youth through the development of unique programs and the distribution of grants to qualified nonprofit organizations. A true play-maker on the court while charming and fashionable off the court, Jalen Rose is an all-around superstar both in front of and behind the camera.
