Height, How Tall is Jalen Rose?
Around the world, Jalen is recognized as one of the top handsome basketball players. While active in the court, he was a true point-player and when off the match, he equally appears attractive and his unique personality has garnered him the nickname “The Natural”. Being a former basketball, it is expected that he is exceptionally tall, with a great height of 6 feet 8 inches and a corresponding weight of 95kg, he is a true image of someone who has been on the basketball pitch.
Even after basketball, he still maintains his enviable athletic physique and properly groomed personality which is gaining him increasing followership on social media, especially from the opposite sex who cannot help but swoon at a glimpse of the former NBA superstar.

Relationship with Molly Querim
Finally, the ex-NBA superstar who is known for keeping his personal affairs private and confidential went public with his romantic relationship with First Take host/moderator Molly Qerim who is of Albanian and middle eastern descent. Molly on her own part alluded to the union although the public is still surprised that the two lovebirds can openly declare their relationship status when they have been so secretive in the past.
Recently, Molly and Jalen had a little on-air lover spat during her show when Jalen made the statement “people are only as faithful as their options” in a bid to defend veteran linebacker James Harrison who after being cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers immediately signed on with their worst rivals the New England Patriots. Jalen’s defense of James did not go down well with Molly who expressed her displeasure by shooting him a total death stare, snapping in an angry tone and rolling her eyes.
