Jalen Rose, in his own way, is a wordsmith. He has a certain cadence that allows him to speak very clearly and convey his message to the fullest extent with a clear plan in place. So he didn’t just say this Derek Fisher joke by accident or just off the top of his head. He picked his spot and took his shot very carefully.
Jalen does a great job on his podcast (which is now a TV show), Jalen & Jacoby, of explaining the culture of the NBA. For all of the unfaithful actions that take place within the NBA, Fisher’s actions seem to be damning.
If you’ve somehow missed Derek Fisher’s Mr. Take Your Girl role, you’ve got some serious reading to do.
