Jalen Rose: ‘I hated Duke. They only recruited black players who were Uncle Toms’

Rick Chandler

Mar 8, 2011, 11:38 AM EST


They’re college basketball’s most talked about team that never won anything, known as the Fab Five, Michigan’s 1991 recruiting class which included Jalen Rose, Jimmy King, Ray Jackson, Chris Webber and Juwan Howard. Interesting to see that 18 years later, they still harbor some bitterness over what they weren’t able to accomplish. With special acrimony still reserved for Duke. Rose, King and Jackson appeared on ESPN’s First Take this morning to discuss 30 for 30’s documentary on the Fab Five that will air on Sunday.

About midway through the First Take segment, they played a clip from the documentary in which Rose says:

“For me, Duke was personal. I hated Duke. And I hated everything I felt Duke stood for. Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me. I felt like they only recruited black players that were Uncle Toms.”

Asked about the comment, Rose didn’t exactly backtrack, but elaborated:

“Well, certain schools recruit a typical kind of player whether the world admits it or not. And Duke is one of those schools. They recruit black players from polished families, accomplished families. And that’s fine. That’s okay. But when you’re an inner-city kid playing in a public school league, you know that certain schools aren’t going to recruit you. That’s one. And I’m okay with it. That’s how I felt as an 18-year-old kid.”

See the First Take interview video here.

Hard to know where to start here. First, obviously you’re not “okay with it,” because if you were you wouldn’t still sound so bitter. For their parts, King and Jackson agreed, Jackson saying that he appreciates now “what [Duke] has accomplished,” but he still hates them.

Looks like an interesting documentary. The Fab Five brought a “hip-hop flavor” to the game and changed it in many ways, but never won a Big Ten or national championship. Ironically, they’re probably best known for Webber’s phantom time out call against North Carolina in 1993, and a huge NCAA rules scandal that resulted a few years later in the firing of coach Steve Fisher and several sanctions against the school.

I’m not even going to get into the sadness of Rose playing the “Uncle Tom” card. That’s just beneath you, Jalen, in so many ways.

IMO I think Jalen Rose is dead wrong for this, I think there is some truth to what he is saying but to say it amongst your peers is one thing, but to say that on the air....crazy. What you think?

Because being educated, which is a requirement to get into Duke, is being an Uncle Tom.

Yall gotta remember that he is saying that this was how he felt as an 18 year old. Not now.

“Well, certain schools recruit a typical kind of player whether the world admits it or not. And Duke is one of those schools. They recruit black players from polished families, accomplished families. And that’s fine. That’s okay. But when you’re an inner-city kid playing in a public school league, you know that certain schools aren’t going to recruit you. That’s one. And I’m okay with it.

Never liked Jalen Rose, dude is full of himself and has not accomplished a damn thing in his college or NBA career to be acting like he's some kind of legend. People like him are the ones that slow down the wheels of progress.

i guess u gotta be a stereotype n*gga to get into Duke

I see no problem with Duke looking for established eduacated men, i see no problem with them denying inner city kids with D- as their best grades...

doesnt make those inner city kids less of human beings but its just what the school wants.

Rose is dead wrong for calling those kids UNCLE TOMS, its actually an embarrassment and shows what kind of person Duke apparently passed on. A piece of s**t Jalen Rose.

n*gga you acting like its easy to get into Michigan. Michigan is one of this country's finest academic institutions just like Duke is. And this is coming from an Ohio State fan.

I figured he said this was how he used to feel. maybe when he considered going to Duke in his day.

Not really....He said "I hated duke. I felt like they recruited players that were uncle toms."

He's saying that's how he felt at the time, but he's also repeating that sentiment showing that he still sort of feels that way. I mean I'm all for people speaking their mind and if you have an opinion you should be able to express it, but to say something like that is just wreckless and ignorant.

Just my opinion.

Michigan's a public school, Duke's a private school.

Couldn't agree more, wouldn't change one word you said.

Duke, just like any other school, can have their own educational standards. It's not for me to judge.
