Prior to Game 1 of the NBA Finals, I was walking around Staples Center. While doing so, I happen to cross paths with ESPN Analyst and former NBA player Jalen Rose. Rose was in the middle of conducting an interview with Lewis Dix and TDP from Jamie Foxx’s Foxxhole on Sirius Radio.
Because Rose was walking and talking, I didn’t have the opportunity to pose for a photo with him. But, I was still able to corral a good shot, after I pointed at my camera and he gave me a pose as he was walking by.
It turned out to be a good photo that helped set the scene around the arena. Rose has evolved from a solid NBA player to a very good broadcaster. It’s very apparent that he takes his second career very seriously. It was fun to see him in preparation for his next ESPN appearance.
