On Saturday ESPN analyst Jalen Rose was in Bloomington for College GameDay, ahead of No. 3 Indiana beating No. 1 Michigan. On Sunday, he was in New Orleans for the network's Super Bowl festivities. In between he washed away his sorrows at watering hole Kilroy's Sports, as well as at some random dudes' house.

Rose's adventures were chronicled on Reddit by a handful of students who were there, but, perhaps wary of narcing him out so he never comes back, a user's account of Rose holding court was swiftly deleted. Lost Lettermen grabbed it in time:

• "He seemed fairly confident that MJ was hungover in Game 5 of the '97 Finals and didn't actually have the flu"

• On Reggie Miller's house burning down in 1997: "He is SURE [ex-wife] Marita Miller burned down Reggie's house"

• "Joked how he couldn't smoke weed because ‘man I work for Disney!! You don't think they drug test us?' "

• "He kept asking how the hell you work a bong and after getting chirped for it, he goes ‘PLEASE. black people only use pipes if they're smoking crack' "

• "He claimed he could hit 17 of 20 3s RIGHT THEN AND THERE, everyone howled and said no way, he just laughed and kept yelling ‘f*** ya'll ******* ya'll' "

• "5am rolls around and he gets asked what time his flight is to leave for New Orleans – ‘oh I dunno….about 2 and a half hours' "

• On Jamaal Tinsley: ‘The dude drank vodka more often than water…AND I let him live with me! For a MONTH!'"

Jalen Rose and Jalen Rose's College GameDay windbreaker are national treasures, and should be preserved in the Smithsonian once the stains are steam-cleaned out.

I believe everything Jalen said. I heard about it being Reggie's wife that burned down his house a while ago. And the Jordan flu game always seemed suspect to me. I've never heard of a flu lasting one day.

If he actually was hungover (he wasn't). I wonder if the news would be as big as the Te'o hoax.

I wonder if he was hungover when he was making these comments?

Also if he really was hungover is that not more impressive than having the flu and having that type of game?

JB should be in hear shortly to announce a comment on Jordan's behalf.
It will probably sound something similar to :
"I have recently talked to Mr Jordan and he'd like to inform you all he is making no comments towards the speculation that he used Deer antler spray erm, I mean was hungover during game 5 of said playoff series. He would also like to inform you all that he is in fact better than you all.
Thank you all for listening, sincerely Jordan's PR man."

I was thinking the same thing as an earlier poster. If he was THAT hungover. That's far more impressive than just having the flu. He was so ****ing drunk the night/day before that he essentially had the flu the FOLLOWING NIGHT. That's pretty ****ing epic. If people weren't such sissies about someone drinking too much it'd be a far greater accomplishment.

Would be insanely impressed if that was a hangover. When you look like that due to a hangover from the previous night then you did some work. I can barely make it out of bed with a hangover after a black out night let alone step on a court surrounded by 10's of thousands of people and put on a show.

the hangover thing is BS. if he was that hungover, he could have had a trainer or somebody hook him up to an iv and a banana bag. that eliminates your hangover within minutes.

If you've watched the Dream Team Doc you'd know that MJ doesn't sleep. And to get over a hangover you'd need to get some rest. I mean it seems like a bit of a reach but I can't say it doesn't make me go "Hmmm?"

Haha a call that would have gone down in history and beer commercials forever.

Love everything about all of this, from jalen (yeah his nba tonight and college gameday stuff is normally ehh to unwatchable at times) but he has told some great grantland nba stories, including stealing Patrick ewings tv (hilarious).
Going back to New Orleans, the cite of the collapse of his 2nd NCAA championship loss, with the now legendary cwebb time out, and after michigan losing to indiana, I'm sure he was well into the drinks when he started spittin this stuff. Wonder how much of this stuff is true? Though he had alluded to Jordan not actually having the flu, somewhat on the record.

I'd believe it if came from someone on one of the teams actually competing for the championship (Jalen and winning big games should never be mentioned in the same sentence)and if it wasn't coming from a crackhead that speaks a language unknown to man

Um, no you can get a hangover without sleep. Next time you get hammered drunk, don't fall asleep. You'll feel the hangover soon enough (if you're the type to get them).

You've never heard of a flu lasting one day? Seriously? It has a name and everything...strangely enough, it's called....wait for it.....the 24-hour flu.

http://www.livestrong.com/article/70905-24hour-flu-symptoms/

Wow....just wow.

That being said, I wouldn't doubt if Jordan was hung over. Doesn't really change anything. The game was still amazing, whether he felt like crap because of a hang over, or because of the flu. Most NBA players party like crazy, I don't see Jordan being any different. And it doesn't change the way I look at any of them. As long as they can still play, and play well, party it up.

The rest of what Jalen said is also quite possibly true. None of it matters though. It's just Jalen trying to stay relevant. I mean, the guy is on TV, and still no one cares about him. So, he has to do something. And that just happens to be airing other people's stuff.

Either way, whether it was a flu or a hangover, the guy was dehydrated, throwing up, and obviously sick. He played through it, played well, and won.

It's not out of the realm of possibility. There were(are?) no casinos in Utah, and a guys got to do something to kill time when staying there.

But the bottom line is, MJ got the job done. Something Jailin could never relate to.

The hangover you know at 28 is not the hangover you know at 23. Jordan was 33. Let's not pretend like it's out of the realm of reason that he was still hungover. If I had to play a game last night after SuperBowl Sunday, I'd be able to pull off the black plague. Incredibly stupid of him if he actually got drunk enough to get a hangover before a Finals game, but tough to argue with the results regardless of what it was.

But if I remember correctly, the Bulls staff thought there was a good chance it was food poisoning (which would make sense having a quick turnaround the next day). No hangover or flu even sniffs the damage food poisoning took on me the one time I've had it (I actually had a college game that morning and there was zero chance I could go. Non-stop vomiting).

Other scenario is that he was drinking lightly and he got something slipped in his drink. I've heard that as well.

Again though, who cares? He was clearly sick, and still dominated. Short list of people who would have played looking like he did, even shorter who would've taken the team on their back.

Maybe if your drinking wine coolers. I wish hangovers lasted only a few hours. Bender induced hangovers take me OUT for the whole next day...I guess when I was still in college hangovers were noticeably less terrible. Hangovers just get worse and worse with every year that goes by.
