ESPN Daily: Is Jalen Rose the First Jalen?

You’ll find several “Jalens” in the NBA draft this week, following several that were in the spring NFL draft. From Jalen Suggs to Jalen Green to Jalen Johnson, the first round of picks will have you hearing the name ... a lot. For years our colleague, friend and basketball veteran Jalen Rose has maintained that today’s Jalens are named for him (whether they know it or not). In one of our favorite-ever episodes, we honor Jalen Rose’s mother, the recently passed Jeanne Rose, by exploring the history and mystery of his name in sports and beyond. With data, experts, and extensive interviews, the Jalen paradox is solved.
