Jalen Anthony Rose is an American sports analyst and former professional basketball player. In college, he was a member of the University of Michigan Wolverines’ “Fab Five” that reached the 1992 and 1993 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship games as both freshmen and sophomores.
Rose’s biological father Jimmy Walker was a No. 1 overall draft pick in the NBA who started in the backcourt alongside Jerry West in the 1972 NBA All-Star Game. Rose never met his father in person.
Rose’s mother, Jeanne, named him from a combination of his father’s name, James, and his uncle’s name, Leonard.

A number of notable American athletes who began play in the 2010s are named Jalen, after Rose, including Jalen Mayfield, Jalen Suggs, and Jaylen Waddle. In 2021, there were 32 players with some variation of the name Jalen on rosters in the NBA, NFL, and other North American professional sports, with an additional 80 who played men’s college basketball.
Rose played in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a small forward for six teams, most notably alongside Reggie Miller on the Indiana Pacers team that made three consecutive Eastern Conference finals, and reached the 2000 NBA Finals. He retired in 2007 with a career average of 14.3 points, 3.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game.
