“I want to start conversations, and even better, arguments.” – From the Introduction
One of the most outspoken and original voices in sports sounds off while revealing his incredible life story.
Jalen Rose has never been quiet. Not as a kid growing up in Detroit in the 70’s and 80’s. Not as the brash, trash-talking leader of the legendary “Fab Five” at the University of Michigan. Not as the player under the stewardship of Hall of Famers Larry Bird, Isiah Thomas and others throughout his 13-year NBA career. And certainly not as a commentator and analyst on ABC/ESPN and Grantland.
In Got to Give the People What They Want, no topic is off limits.
Honest, unfiltered, unbiased. Raw, refreshing, real. This colorful collection of stories and opinions about basketball and life gives people the kind of insight and understanding they don’t get anywhere else in the sports world.
An amazing read. Jalen gives his thoughts on the whole C-Webb saga, his dislike for Larry Brown. a crazy night in Beverly Hills and much, much more!
I'm proud of Jalen like I know him lol I've been a supporter since the fab five days when I was in middle school and read Mitch albom book my fresh met year of high school in 95. I wish you success with your school and hope some of the points you raised towards the end of the book will inspire of athletes to do something meaningful with their money. I also hope you and c Webb reconcile but I can't see that happening anytime soon cause you've been a chatty patty with that issues lol you still the big homie. Salute!!!
I love the stories and NBA insight. J. Rose always keeps in 100. I really appreciated hearing his side of the whole C. Webb thing. Overall good read…. not great but good….worth a read.
