I used to play basketball at Jackson Federal Prison against their monthly intramural champs as part is a church ministry type of thing. This is like that but, you know, with more crazy.

The Longest Yard Peruvian indie film version produced by Harbaugh. Same as the Adam Sandler version but with 10x the hitting and competition at every position.

Jalen took money and told the truth to the grand jury. But it wasn't tens of thousands. He would get $50 here and there while in university, but most of it was when he was a poor youth growing up playing ball in Detroit - like a lot of kids did encluding the kids who weren't good enough to go to college. Martin bought shoes for tons of kids in the area.
Jalen has been very honest about these things, and I respect him for it.

Jimmy King on Weber: (paraphrased)
"I think he has personal issues. He likes a little drama obviously carrying on with certain things, relationships that could have been handled years ago. It's a personal character flaw that he has. Just over the years of dealing with him trying to talk with hin and speak with him. Nothing's really hanged. People who are smart enough and close enough understand situation. The quote that hes saying that we're trying to make it about ourselves is actually about him. So really he's exposing himself."
Jimmy King also makes it clear that Weber did not tell the truth about the timing of the documentary and asking him to be a part of it. Jimmy King calls them "100% lies" and blames it on Weber's "character flaws." King is both "embarrased and dissapointed" with how Weber has chosen to handle the entire situation since he left the university.
Jimmy King was calm and reasonable. Respectful but unwavering.

It could also mean that Jalen finally broke his silence about Weber in general. He was always careful about what he said about Chris. He clothed all his words in brotherhood and not laying too much blame on him. He generally spoke with respect about Weber (even if it wasn't deserved).
But Chris called Jalen a liar and tried to tarnish the documentary - a piece of work I'm certain Jalen has a lot of love and pride about. Jalen had to respond. And he chose to say what he truly felt. In that sense, for the first time he spoke openly and negatively about Weber.
|1 week 6 days ago||I respect your sentiment, but||
I respect your sentiment, but I have to disagree.
Jalen wasn't overly negative at all about Weber in the documentary. He was fair and explained a difficult situation giving some important points that helped explain and somewhat justify Weber's possible thinking at the time. Jalen can't do anything to erase what Weber did. That isn't Jalen's fault.
Weber is NOT CLOSE to the Michigan Man that Jalen is. And by that I mean that Jalen speaks up for UM more than almost any other former athelete. Jalen openly wears Maize and Blue often, speaking about it as his home. Additionaly, Jalen has found success off the court and outside of business by being a major figure supporting Detroit youth. He has been exceptional.
Weber, in general, had done none of these things. I love Weber, played basketball against him, volunteered with him while at UM, and am not one of the people who wants him disassociated with the university. But still, Weber isn't in the same league as Jalen when it comes to representing our university well.

Fuck I read that as Ohio State and my heart was filled with betrayal and shock.
|1 week 6 days ago||This sentiment bothers me.||
This sentiment bothers me. You don't have to like Jalen, his attitude, or his personality. He's a sports entertainer (among many other things such as school founder for under-privaleged Detroit youth). He entertains like an play-by-play or color anouncer.
But man, that dude supports Michigan and always has. Yeah, he loves himself, but I can't think of an alum athlete that vocally supports UM more than he does.
We would be so lucky to have more Jalen Roses on our side. Quit hating on him and embrace him - he wants to be part of the family.

Been a strict Nike guy for three decades. My son wears UA for his AAU team. Most of the AAU teams we play are dressed head toe in UA gear - especially the coaches which I think is UA's clear strategy. And I think it'll work.

Better, but if you"re talking about Chatman (which I assume you are), you should have also mentioned his charisma like Jalen Rose.

I wonder what the possibility of red shirts are. Spike in he isn't full health or MAAR if he's only used 5 minutes a game? Spike would be highly valued the following year if Walton is gone.

I wish I could get humiliated while playing in the NBA. I'd love to have ankles broke, but recover just in time to defend a dunk attempt, and end up getting posterized.
