Former Indiana Pacers’ guard, Jalen Rose who played for a plethora of teams and now works for ESPN, came out with a secret he has kept for years. In a funny admission, Rose admits to actually stealing Knicks’ legend, Patrick Ewing’s TV/VCR. In an interview with ESPN’s Grantland, Rose talks about the rivalry in the ’90s and how he wanted to throw himself in the middle of the fray since he was the top dog on the team in scoring. “I felt like, since I was getting minutes, that season I led the team in scoring so I had to put myself in the middle of the rivalry. So of course that means I have to let the big fella Patrick Ewing know that I’m out here a little bit. We’re in the Garden and I felt like I wasn’t getting the benefit of the whistle. So one time, I drove to the basket and I felt like he fouled me and I didn’t get the call so I was a little frustrated. He tried to step over me, so I tripped him.” So after that little skirmish, Rose explains how he went to the airport and saw a silver chest with blue on it unattended. It had a sticker that read “Patrick Ewing.” Then he decided his “Detroit instincts” kicked in. “Then the Detroit instincts came out.”  “I looked to the left, looked to the right, hit the handles.” In the chest was a TV/VCR combination. Rose said to himself, “I’m getting this.” So he two-wayed his homeboy and carried the chest out and put it in the trunk of a car. Rose added: “We kept it for years,” Rose said. “I couldn’t take the sticker off. It was stuck on there. All my friends and family have seen Patrick Ewing’s TV at my house.” CHECK OUT THE VIDEO: The post WATCH: Jalen Rose stole Patrick Ewing’s TV/VCR appeared first on New York Sports Kings.
