Jalen Rose Once Stole Patrick Ewing’s TV (With A VCR Attachment!) From The Airport
October 31 / Dylan Murphy / SportsGrid
Here are the nuts and bolts of the story: Back when the Knicks-Pacers rivalry was one of consequence, and Jalen Rose led Indiana in scoring, the two teams were facing off in Indiana. On one particular drive to the basket, Rose thought he was fouled by Patrick Ewing, but didn't get the call. In retaliation, Rose unsuccessfully tried to trip Ewing, leading to a pissed off Ewing getting in Rose's face.
The two eventually cooled off and Indiana won the game. But when both teams went to fly out of Indiana for separate and upcoming away games, Rose spotted at the airport a silver chest with a blue sticker that had Patrick Ewing's name on it. So naturally Rose popped open the chest, found Patrick Ewing's television (with a VCR attachment!) and stole it. But he was traveling, so he called a friend and had him take it away in his trunk.
