Jalen Rose says that Michael Jordan was just hungover during the Flu Game


Jalen Rose apparently hung out with a bunch of students in Indiana on Saturday night after being in town for College Gameday – Indiana played Michigan earlier in the day.

Anyway, Rose ended up drinking with these dudes and told a bunch of stories, including a claim that Jamaal Tinsley used to drink vodka more often than water.

The students went to Reddit and typed up all of his best comments, though they were deleted shortly after but preserved via Deadspin.

Rose also went onto claim that Michael Jordan‘s legendary “Flu Game” was nothing but a common hangover:

“He seemed fairly confident that MJ was hungover in Game 5 of the ’97 Finals and didn’t actually have the flu”

Now, Rose was apparently intoxicated – as were the students – so who knows if this is true. Either way, it’s pretty funny.
