Are Jalen Rose & Derrick Rose related ?
There is nothing to suggest that Jalen Rose and Derrick Rose are related. Jalen was born and raised in Detroit in the Bill Laimbeer era. His biological father is Jimmy Walker (who started with Jerry West). Though they corresponded, Jalen never met his father in person. Derrick was born and raised in Chicago in the Michael Jordan era. Derrick goes by the nickname “Pooh” which was giving to him by his grandmother (based on his resemblance to Winnie-the-Pooh as an infant).
