Despite his massive success in college as part of the University of Michigan’s early 1990s “Fab Five” — the first team in Final Four history to ever start five freshmen, often dubbed one of the NCAA’s most iconic teams — Rose tells CNBC Make It that he had to prove himself every night in the NBA.
In the pros, he says, he had to regularly compete against Hall of Fame opponents like Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant. “I never went into a game and somebody said, ‘Hey, Jalen, you’re just as good as Michael Jordan,’” Rose says. “Those words have never been said.”
To prepare himself, Rose says, he adopted a routine that he still implements today: He owns the morning. For him, accomplishing something between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m. can foster success, specifically because most other people don’t take advantage of that window.

DETROIT — The Jalen Rose Leadership Academy serves some 400 students and 600 alumni from a brick, two-story, former middle school on this city’s Northwest side. On Thursday afternoon, its namesake walked in.
The former local basketball star, Fab Five sensation and 13-year NBA veteran is a current ESPN broadcaster. First and foremost though, he is always quick to note, he is a Detroiter.
