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.
