ESPN Host Jalen Rose Says USA Men’s Basketball Afraid To Send All Black Team To The Olympics

ESPN host Jalen Rose gave a controversial take on the 2021 USA Men’s basketball headed to Tokyo for the Olympic games. Rose says that the only white player on the team, Kevin Love, is there because of tokenism. He says “they” (whoever “they” may be) are afraid to put forth an all-black Team USA. Jalen Rose is a former NBA basketball player and his opinion on all things basketball-related is taken seriously. Especially because of his high-profile position over at ESPN. But his take on Team USA and the fear of an all-black team is a comment made out of either ignorance or simply from being a liar.

  1. I don’t know Jalen Rose from Santa Claus, but he has an opinion like everybody else. I’m not going to hate on him, he kind of brings an interesting twist to the “token” team member/employee/movie character topic. I only have a problem when people in authority (i.e. the olympic committee) start making rules involving skin color, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other stuff like that. Talking about things never hurts anyone, but taking action based on biases and politics hurts plenty of folks.
