Jalen Anthony Rose was born on January 30, 1973 in Detroit, Michigan. He is a retired American professional basketball player. In college, he was a member of the University of Michigan Wolverines’ “Fab Five” (along with Chris Webber, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King & Ray Jackson) that reached the 1992 and 1993 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship games as both Freshmen & Sophomores. Rose’s biological father Jimmy Walker was a previous #1 overall pick who begun in the backcourt alongside Jerry West in an NBA All-Star game at one point in his career. Walker died in July 2007 of lung cancer. Although they eventually spoke several times over the phone, Rose never met his father in person.

Jalen Rose Bio
A left-handed player, Rose was recognise to have a smooth & versatile offensive game. Jalen was particularly gifted as a scorer from the border or the post, capable of putting up 20 points most any night. Jalen was used throughout his career at three different positions. He began his career as a point guard for the Denver Nuggets & became a shooting guard/small forward for the Indiana Pacers. He then returned to the point guard position briefly with the Toronto Raptors. While he showed a willingness in Toronto to work harder than ever (particularly on defense), Rose also frequently clashed with Raptors coach Sam Mitchell, who benched a struggling Jalen early in the 2005–06 season in favor of rookie Joey Graham. In the following months, Rose at least raised his play to a more acceptable level. He increased his Player Efficiency Rating more than three whole points (to 13.7) while averaging 12.1 points, 2.5 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game. However, he only shot 40.4% from the field and 27% from three-point range (including a 51.4 true shooting percentage) through 46 games.
