Ep 75 | Whitlock Calls Out ESPN’s Jalen Rose | Kyrie Irving Sparks Conversation About Manhood
Fearless with Jason Whitlock
Reacting to Jalen Rose’s personal video challenge, Jason reframes the left-wing narrative about media and manhood. Were the former NBA player’s words warranted after what Jason said about Rose’s wife, ESPN’s Molly Qerim Rose? What in Rose’s words demonstrates the colossal decline of American manhood? How did Kyrie Irving spark a true conversation about our society in a way Colin Kaepernick never could? Whitlock also examines the comments by Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, and Shaquille O’Neal about Kyrie. Why did Jason’s epic hourlong monologue nearly bring him to tears? “Cut the Bull” host Shemeka Michelle gives a feminine perspective to a uniquely masculine discussion. Plus, on “Tennessee Harmony,” Jason and the pastors discuss gender and race issues being used as political idols by certain Christian churches.

Jalen Rose (NBA player, NY Times best-selling author, NBA Countdown, Jalen & Jacoby, Get Up) opens up about the brotherhood of the Fab 5, the impact of stress from playing professional basketball on his mental health, and his undying love for the city of Detroit. He describes his childhood growing up in the segregated city of Detroit during a drug epidemic, his partnership and close bond with his mom, and how his entrepreneurial spirit was influenced by never knowing his NBA star father, Jimmy Walker. Jalen details his rededication to the game and self-discipline after getting kicked out of school, why he started looking up to public figures with flaws, and the feelings of unworthiness he experienced as a member of the Fab 5. Mayim and Jalen bond over the similarities between being an athlete and performer, and Jalen educates Mayim and Jonathan with his Guide to Trash Talk. They discuss their admiration for Simone Biles & Naomi Osaka, the life skills and mental health coping mechanisms that can be learned from playing sports, and the United States’ history of valuing entertainment over education.

With data, experts, and extensive interviews, the Jalen paradox is solved.
