With the New York Knicks out of the playoffs, there are plenty finger pointing to go around. One of the many assumptions why the Knicks didn't advance to the next round belongs to J.R. Smith, who may have let his off-the-field lifestyle conflict with his on-the-court performance. But, here's Jalen Rose to the rescue. In a recent appearance on Grantland, Jalen made a case that certain players, J.R. included, need to go out to the clubs. Sounds ridiculous but why don't you check out the video and hear him out. It may actually make some sense after all. Enjoy.

Jalen Rose spoke. And then Chris Duhon responded. And then Grant Hill wrote a column for the New York Times. And now, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski (try typing that five times fast!) has spoken out about Rose's recent admission that he once believed Duke only recruited black players who were Uncle Toms. "Obviously, that was a poor choice of words and very insulting to everyone here at Duke," Coach K said yesterday. "When you judge within a race, you start judging, like you put categories as to who you are. I think that's just the wrong thing to do."
And lest he leave it alone there, he poured a little salt in the wound, too. "[The Fab Five] had a heck of a run, but they didn't leave anything there," he said. "The guys I had established something that Jay Williams continued to do ten years later—the standards of what it meant to be a Duke basketball players." Shots...fired? Before you say anything, Jalen: Please, just let it go! [via ESPN]

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the 38-year-old former NBA star was driving along an icy roadway on March 11 when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed.
Cops were called to the scene and Rose agreed to undergo several voluntary roadside sobriety tests. He was later transported to a nearby facility for chemical testing ... those results have not yet been returned. Rose was eventually arrested for driving under the influence.
We're told Rose was in his hometown of Detroit in preparation for the opening of the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy ... a charter school designed to provide under-privileged youth with college prep experience.
TMZ spoke with Rose's L.A.-based attorney, Keith Davidson, who told us, "We look forward to working with the authorities in Michigan and addressing these matters in court, not in the press. We have no comment at this time."
