Jalen Rose not ‘bitter’ over Michigan president’s stance toward basketball era

Jalen Rose talks Fab Five, banners and more at last week’s Mott Hospital fundraiser.

“I think it was unnecessary. Flagrant. Defiant,” Rose told The News during the Griese-Hutchinson-Woodson golf fundraiser for Mott Hospital last weekend. “But it was honest, and I respect that. If they choose not to embrace the Fab Five era, if they choose not to embrace us individually or as a team or the things we brought to the table, I really have no bitterness. I’m not mad at it.

“What’s going to happen, though? … When you turn your back directly or indirectly on something that was so good to you, you’re never going to get the true foundation of a program to build upon.”
