October 2008 — Learn to Live With Regrets… JALEN ROSE:
Regrets: "I regret never meeting my biological father [two-time NBA All-Star James "Jimmy" Walker], who passed away last summer."
CRED: After stints with the Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors and Chicago Bulls, Jalen wrapped his 13-year NBA career in 2007. The Detroit native now trash talks as an ESPN/ABC broadcaster and studio analyst. As style editor at HOOP magazine and as a philanthropist with his Jalen Rose Foundation, the swingman was a perfect fit for our committee of gentlemen.

"YOU REALLY CAN'T DO BUSINESS WITH PEOPLE YOU DON'T TRUST."
You've got to be patient and trust your judgment. I want to always be a part of situations and deals I'm proud of. People who have credibility, responsibility and something to lose understand that their name, their word and their brand means everything.
