Jalen Rose’s Handsy Encounter With Malika Andrews Goes Viral (Video)

Jalen Rose’s Handsy Encounter With Malika Andrews Goes Viral (Video)

Jalen Rose and Malika Andrews found themselves going viral this week following a handsy encounter on ESPN.

Rose, 50, has spent the last few years as one of the Worldwide Leader’s more prominent hoops analysts.

Andrews, 28, has quietly emerged over the past two years as a face of NBA coverage for ESPN following Rachel Nichols’ unceremonious exit from the company.

This week, the pair trended on social media over something of a polarizing video.

NBA fans are among the most opinionated and vocal in sports. There is nothing they won’t offer their two cents on.

Understandably, the same held true for this encounter between Rose and Andrews.

Andrews, of course, is reportedly dating a fellow ESPN personality.

Rose, meanwhile, is also said to have a new girlfriend after his unfortunate (and surprisingly dramatic) divorce from First Take host Molly Qerim.

How all the peripheral relationships involved here are impacted by this viral video is unclear at the moment.

Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time in recent weeks one of ESPN’s NBA shows has led to a strange encounter between personalities.

Just last week, Richard Jefferson had to come out and address a clip that had started going viral involving him and a female ESPN employee.

It will be interesting to see if either Rose or Andrews ultimately opts to address their encounter in recent days.

It’s equally likely, however, that both parties will ignore it and just move on.

Either way, this probably isn’t going to be the last time Andrews and Rose find themselves trending before this NBA season concludes.
