Jalen Rose pleads the fifth on contact from UK

cal

John Calipari filled the last remaining spot on his basketball staff at Kentucky Friday when the school named former Auburn coach Tony Barbee as special assistant to the head coach.

But interestingly, on the Jalen and Jacoby podcast July 25, ESPN analyst and former NBA player Jalen Rose would neither confirm nor deny rumors that he was contacted by Kentucky to fill one of those vacancies.

“There are a few college coaches that I would consider working for,” Rose said. “John Calipari is one of them.”

    It’s being reported that the Cavs offered Calipari the head coaching position and a very enticing contract. More to come later!

      Slow down there, Tori Smelling. Obviously Also is making a joke about how this is old news by presenting even older news.

    At first I kinda liked the Tony barber hire I mean he was an sec coach at the end of the day.. But I really wish we got jalen rose he’d be a great recruiter (remember we lost the young get along with players guy) he’d fit that role perfectly plus help point guards

      I will give you my grade-school punctuation and grammar books if you promise to read them.

      Barbee isn’t being hired to recruit or even be a coach on the bench. It’s Rod Strickland’s old job.

    Speaking of Roses, if Derrick Rose ever gets completely knocked out of commission, he’d be a fun hire for Cal to bring in.

      Yes, but he’ll miss 200 games in three years.

    Bitcoin also has the advantage of being used on an international

    The bitcoin peer to peer network must go through a similar upgrade when the elements posing a threat acquire higher computing power.

    Jalen Rose? Seriously, NOOOOOO! Tony Barbee is okay, but Jalen Rose is a jerk in every interview. NOOOOOOO! Please!
