Description - Got To Give The People What They Want by Jalen Rose

"As a former member of the Michigan Wolverine's "fab five" and a player in some of the Indiana Pacers' best seasons, Rose is well-qualified to expose the inner workings of college basketball. His sharp tongue, quick wit, and irreverent sense of humor leave no subject untouched, from the ways players blow off steam on the road (champagning and campaigning) and how to perfect on-court trash talk, to what draft day is like and how race plays out in the locker room. Got to Give the People What They Want will also discuss trends and transitions within the game, including the rise and fall of the point guard and the role endorsement companies play in college recruiting. Rose's engaging personal story is woven throughout the book and illuminates his opinions on the larger world of celebrity, sports, and culture."

Author Biography - Jalen Rose

JALEN ROSE was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, and attended Southwestern High School and the University of Michigan. As the only team in Final Four history to start five freshmen, the Michigan Wolverines appeared in back-to-back NCAA Championship games. In 1994, Jalen was drafted in the first round by the Denver Nuggets. As a member of the Indiana Pacers, he appeared in three straight Eastern Conference finals and went to the NBA finals in 2000. While many basketball stars make the transition to the small screen after they hang up their basketball kicks, Jalen made the bold leap in the midst of his NBA career in 2002, becoming a multifaceted reporter and on-air personality for Fox Sports Net's famed Best Damn Sports Show Period. In 2000, Jalen established the Jalen Rose Foundation/Charitable Fund to create life-changing opportunities for underserved youth through the development of unique programs and the distribution of grants to qualified nonprofit organizations. Recently, the Detroit News recognized Jalen with the prestigious Michiganian of the Year Award in recognition of his excellence, courage, and philanthropy.
