  • Published on Oct 18, 2019
  • Jalen Rose is concerned with what he is seeing with the Houston Rockets so far this preseason and adds that James Harden and Russell Westbrook do not look like a good partnership. (1:41) Jalen and David Jacoby react to Kentucky Wildcats coach John Calipari’s comments on how expanding the NBA draft would “ruin college basketball."

    Ruin colleg basketball? Really? C'mon, we all know the truth that you are only using the players to have more sponsorship from big companies and after they are injured, the players are like trash to your organisation.

    Yeah Harden can drop 60 from here to the end of the season and it still won’t change how I feel he not a playoff champion kind of player.

    Jalen was spot on. But the reality is no one can partner with Harden. He's not a team player, his style of play is all style and no substance. He's all stats and that's why he'll continue to come up small in the postseason. The type of offense the Rockets want doesn't equal championships period.

    You all speaking way too fast and passing blame on all the big name teams. In the end you will see who has gotten better but to place blame this early is only hater talk to me. Let them ball catch us at half way point with this question. Or talk about what Jaylen never won, we know what it was like watching him play. Gramps ball!

  • Young Frantz

    And people still think CP3 was the problem...
    The things Jalen is saying was the same thing CP3 was complaining about. Ex: Harden standing at half court when he doesn’t have the ball.

    RE: College - With 2nd Tier going to G Leagues the College now can develop the 4 year Talents AGAIN. Now you are helping the SCHOLAR Athlete. If Colleges do not Adjust, so what they were not suppose to be the 'farmclubs' anyway.
    The=ink about the HSBCU's they are stuck under the Big Colleges after integration. They had to deal with it.
    Remember the Negro Leagues????

    Since Calipari is so adamant on his stance, why won't he be as adamant about paying athletes legally? Stop exploiting these kids and pay them.

    Harden scores a ton of points, that’s it! He’s not a real ball player, he’s a circus, a sideshow. A championship team has to play defense (As a team)!

    Yeah. The best players are not trying to get drafted in the 3rd round. A third round might help get rid of the one and done...but probably not.

  • SilverBlackGorilla

    Calipari is tripping? This notion that you have to go to college straight out of high school is nonsense. My Pops fought in Vietnam, got married, had 4 kids and worked at the same job for over 20 years all before he went o college and got his degree in his 50's. The window for college is always there but the window for the NBA is incredibly narrow so take whatever opportunity that's available. College will always be there. And it sounds like Calipar is dissing the G League. The base pay for the G League is $7000 a month so that's good money for a young man pursuing his dream. He can take classes in the off season if he wants to anyway. Calipar is just being selfish because he knows that he'll lose recruits if they add two more rounds to the draft. He's worrying about his job, not the kids. Period

    2 different main guards!?
    Both are starter guards but to put them together is canceling out one or Both games to me!!!?
    Russel is "ready set go" & James is "freeze frame!?"
    I can't see them on the court same time the majority of a game!!
    Both awesome players but different skill set tendencies!?

    I bet these young, basketball-loving, high school players would prefer to play in the WNBA where they would earn at a minimum 50K (instead of 35K in the G League) and play before 46 game attendees.

    I asked this in another video but no one replied, is Westbrook injured or coming off an injury or surgery? He looks waaaay off rhythm, even his normal dribbling looks off.
