ESPN analyst Jalen Rose executive produced an ESPN Films documentary “The Fab Five” that aired on Sunday that said NBA star Grant Hill and other black Duke University basketball players recruited in the early 1990s were “Uncle Toms.”
“I hated Duke and I hated everything Duke stood for. Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me. I felt like they only recruited black players that were Uncle Toms,” Rose said in the documentary.
Former Duke basketball star Grant Hill called critical comments by Rose “sad and somewhat pathetic” in an open letter published Wednesday by the New York Times.
