    I named my now 3 year old son Jalen after you. I followed your NCAA career and NBA career all the way from Australia.

    It’s great to know the origins of the name so I can tell my son when he gets older. I’ve got an autographed bball card of you too for him to keep.

    If my wife would have let me he might have been call ‘Fab5’ 😉

    I’ve known this story for a long time and I’ve always thought it was a unique way to get your name. The best part is to know that your name means more than just letters that make up a sound…I’ve always admired your name and even though my son’s a Jr, I promise if I’m ever blessed to have another little boy, he will be named after my favorite player: Jalen Anthony and nobody will stop that! Keep Up the Good Work: DETROIT needs you!
