Not karma per day, just wrong place, wrong time.

Don't worry when the Heat brethren fire Spo, he will be right there with Mike Brown @ ESPN.

This is excellent news if it means he ends up with TNT/NBA TV.

ESPN is awful when it comes to NBA analysis.

He's one of the worst by far, guy pauses for everything when he speaks like he forgets what he's going to say next.

But the backlash he got from those comments probably made them want to part ways

I doubt he will be fired. He has admitted he was driving while under the influence. He is going to plead guilty at the court date, pay his fines, do his community service, become an out front advocate with whatever organization against drunk driving and be back on espn by the 2nd round of the playoffs.

Him and that documentary made way more money for espn than they may lose for his uncle tom comments, the backlash or even this incident. I didnt agree with the documentary or Rose's actions but he'll be fine and kept at ESPN.

so him getting a dui is karma for him as an 18 year old think black athletes that attended duke were uncle toms riiiiiiiiiiight

damn karma waited for him to make millions in the nba then become a broadcaster just to catch up with him damn talk about a delayed reaction
He wasnt 18 when he publicly said it. Do i have a problem with his opinion, no. My problem lies in how it was handled. As a black person myself I think it was sad that he would call them Uncle Toms on national Tv. Im sure Jalen is an intelligent man and there are many other ways he could have said that. Then for him to tell Grant Hill and Jay Williams via twitter about his comments doesn't help at all either.

@realgranthill33 @realjaywilliams public shout so its known that my Duke comments were from an 18 year old not a reflection of you or now!

I understand people have the right to their own opinion, but when expressing that opinion you should choose your words wisely.

Not a big deal, they just want him focusing on settling this quickly and privately. He'll be back on the air by playoffs time.

Still dont think he should have started that sh*tstorm with the ignorant comments in his documentary.

^^^^exactly wat im sayin, i dnt care what he feels, he coulda said it in a diff way that doesnt belittle or negativley portray former and current black players at Duke. When u do wrong by people it will come back and get u.


I dont think he will b gone long either, he's not the only analyst on ESPN wit legal troubles

he shouldnt have to choose his words wisely when telling his honest truthful opinion from when he was a kid.. people always go for the politically correct answer.. Jalen said what everyone has thought.. and the same can even be said for UNC to a degree...
