Jalen Rose has apologized after catching heat for making some controversial comments about the US men’s Olympic basketball team last week.
During the latest episode of the Jalen & Jacoby podcast, Rose blasted the selection of Kevin Love to the US Olympic team because he says the Cavs forward was only selected because the NBA was afraid of sending an all-black team to Tokyo.
“But this level of, and I got a word for it … Kevin Love is on the team because of tokenism. Don’t be scared to make an all-Black team representing the United States of America. I’m disappointed by that. Anybody that watched the league this year knows Kevin Love did not have a stellar season, was not the best player on his team and did not necessarily deserve to be on this squad. And I’m not going to take him off the squad and not put somebody else on it. I’m going to tell you whose spot that should be.
