Once again people, Jalen Rose wasnt keeping anything real. He was just an upset jealous confused young man. He has said so himself. He only wanted Duke to recruit him, he only wanted what Grant Hill had with a Professional Sports playing daddy at his games and loving him like Grant's dad loved and supported him. He was bitter and angry but that still didnt make it right for him to use coonery to sell that documentary. The real message was lost because of this sh*t and the way it was produced. Even in the interviews leading up to it, what was he talking about, "His Uncle Tom comments".

If thats not what he wanted to talk about or bring up ahead of time then why was that the clip he took with him on all the shows when he was marketing the premiere? He could have chosen another clip. Why is it Chris Webber backed out of it midway through the production? He wasnt down with being portrayed as a ****, he had some sense and realized he is too old to be talking about "keeping it real"
The real reason why Chris Webber probably backed out is because of that sh*t he pulled with 200K loan then throwing OG under the bus like he was a piece of sh*t. That was grimy and even the rest of Fab Five lost some respect for him after that.

Again i think people are taking what Jalen Rose said out of proportion. He did say he used it as motivation. Both Jalen and Hill made earnest points, but two wrongs don't make a right. I don't see it as selling it for the documentary. They took us on a trip back to their college youth years and their genuine perspective and feeling on certain things back then. So, yes Jalen was keeping it real. The perspective of someone is a bi*ch at times, if Charles Barkley said something that it would be a whole different story, but since Jalen said it it creates controversy even when it wasn't mean spirited and he expounded why he felt that angry which was created to use as motivation. Holding back those passion comments about Duke back then would have been phony. All the inner-city cats didn't like Duke because like Jalen Rose said they wouldn't draft his type. Back then and probably now joining Duke is like selling out. Duke basically = Illuminati. Look at why Jalen just got pulled off.

“Trash-talking in sports, from the playground was never about getting in your face, it was about getting in your head and that’s what these kids were doing.” Still, “It got distorted by people who weren’t familiar with what they were saying.”

Keeping it real is what has black people having that stupid debate in the first place. Keeping it real would have been for Jalen to not address that sh*t since he doesnt feel that way anymore(allegedly) Keeping it real would have been Jimmy King shutting the fu*k up and not portraying a fu*king **** a.ss n*gga trying to be hard when his a.ss went to schools in the suburbs and wasnt from the hood.

I'm sick of ignorant dumb fu*ks claiming this was real or the truth. sh*t is disgusting and is why our race wont ever get better because of you idiots.
That's the opposite of keeping it real you dumb.

It's never the crime, it's the cover-up. I'm sure ESPN is just mad that he didn't tell them and now it's a big deal in the media. ESPN wants to control EVERYTHING.

from what I read, espn has a policy that states if you get in trouble you have to come to them first, Jalen waited 3 weeks, then had it publicly come out. Of course he's gonna get suspended. And if he came out to espn first then it might have been different.

You work for the biggest sport media broadcasting company in the world owned by one of the biggest television broadcasting companies in the world (Disney)
You get a DUI and tell your employer 3 weeks later = and people are bent out of shape about ESPN taking him off the air???? He better be happy ESPN didn't fire his hypocritical a.ss yet.

And that's why Duke didn't want yo a.ss
Poor Judgment and he lacks integrity

You do realize there is life away from basketball. If u think a black man going to a good school to get a great education along with playing ball is selling out. Then you along with many others have some serious issues that need addressing. To think a man is selling out because he is trying to better himself is obsurd.

And to refer to another black man in this day and age as an uncle tom is just ridiculous. Nobody on bx or jalen know s**t about Grant Hill. People wanna knock black Duke players for coming from good backgrounds, but nvr ask the question of how their family got there. People arent handed instant success. It is earned through hard work. Dont knock someone for goin out and working hard so they can provide a better life for their family.

Does Duke recruit a certain type of player yes and they do the exact same with the rest of their students. Go walk on the campus of UNC, NC State, then go to Duke. You will notice a major difference. U arent coming to Duke just to play basketball, like so many other universities allow recurits to do. Duke first priority is for players to get their education.
