A popular phrasing for authenticity in hip-hop is to “keep it real” — to maintain your identity, no matter how much your surroundings change. For ESPN’s Jalen Rose and David Jacoby, “keeping it real” is the foundation of how they’ve built their ESPN2 show, Jalen and Jacoby, over the past seven years.

In a show of support from the Worldwide Leader in Sports, the duo is taking their talents from the 1 a.m. ET time slot to 2 p.m. ET. The duo, however, has very few concerns about what’s coming next.

“It’s a natural organic evolution of the show,” Jacoby told Uproxx Sports. “When we started the show, it was just an idea. I used to be in a control room pushing buttons.

December 24, 2017 — Jalen Rose, whose many duties at ESPN include co-hosting NBA Countdown, working on his podcast Jalen & Jacoby and who will be co-hosting ESPN’s newest morning show Get Up, caught up with The Crossover about the most exciting thing in the NBA during this time of year: Christmas Day games.

Rose talked about his favorite Christmas Day memories, his favorite gifts, what John Skipper—who resigned as ESPN president in mid-December—meant to him, among other things.

Kellen Becoats: What is your best memory about the Christmas Day games? I know you had 31 points against Orlando when you were with the Pacers and you got into a little altercation against Kurt Rambis and the Knicks.

Jalen Rose: I think you just acknowledged it. A better game I would say against my guy T-Mac (Tracey McGrady), my coworker right now, in Orlando because that was at a time when there was four total teams that played on Christmas Day. So you had the

Nicekicks.com: Jalen Rose Talks College Recruiting, Fab 5 Retros & NBA Season

October 24, 2017 | General Latest News Press

October 23, 2017 – Running the point, standing 6’8 and walking to the beat of his own Serato, Jalen Rose was a big guard like Magic Johnson, a style icon like Big L and a leader like Rakim Allah. These days? Well he’s just a damn good broadcaster that runs a free charter school.

Still outspoken, still outstanding, the fearless leader of the Fab 5 is two decades removed from Ann Arbor, but not an inch more distant from Detroit. Breaking bread in Bristol as part of ESPN’s NBA Countdown crew (which premieres this Wednesday at 7 PM ET) and one-half of Jalen & Jacoby, #5 still packs a 313 phone number and has raised nearly $6 Million in scholarship funds in 2017 alone for graduates of his Motown-based charter school.

Fresh fade and fresh takes, we caught up with Jalen on the cusp of the NBA season to hear his Association sleepers, insight on the roles brands play in college recruiting and what music he plays when he DJs parties for his uncles.

Nice Kicks: Let’s start with style. Fashion wise on and off the court, who did you look to growing up?
