An audibly intoxicated Jalen Rose ran into a TMZ cameraman (who presumably yelled “People just don’t understand what is involved in this. This is an art-form! You know, I think that most people just think that I hold a camera and point at stuff, but there is a *heck* of a lot more to it than just that” before starting to record) coming out of some kind of drinking establishment in LA. Seeing the visibly stumbly Rose, the pap pounced on the perfect drunk-guy basketball topic: the Sixers. Rose was asked what the team needs to do to make the playoffs, and according to drunk Jalen, they already have all the pieces they need:
“For real for real? If Embiid plays to his potential, you gotta put ’em there. Just like that. Okafor, Noel, Embiid, Canaan, Ish Smith. Playoffs.”
You know, it’s good to hear someone say that if Embiid hits his potential and stays healthy he can make a huge impact in the NBA. But that’s negated – and Jalen was definitely drinking some strong shit – when he’s dropping Isaiah Canaan’s name. He also dropped some love, kinda, towards Philly rappers:
“I hate to say this cause I love Philly. I been there done that. I’m fortunate enough to have been on Broad Street with the Bully Beanie Sigel, like, I love Philly. But, it’s just … ironic that all of the Philly MCs have done a stint. They’ve all done a stint, but I love Philly …
Take care, bruh. Respect.”
