Malik Jabari Rose (born November 23, 1974) is an American former professional basketball player, and current broadcaster for the Philadelphia 76ers.

High school and college[edit]

Rose graduated from Overbrook High School in Philadelphia, the same high school as Wilt Chamberlain. He graduated from Drexel University with All-American honors after leading the Dragons to their lone NCAA Tournament victory with an upset of the University of Memphis 75-63. At Drexel, Malik averaged over 16 points and 12 rebounds per game throughout his four-year college career. He was a student teacher at Robert E. Lamberton School. In 2011, the 1995-96 men's basketball team, led by Rose, was inducted into the Drexel athletic Hall of Fame.[1]

NBA career[edit]

Rose was drafted in 1996 in the second round by the Charlotte Hornets. Rose is the second Drexel basketball player to participate in the NBA, following Michael Anderson. He was signed as a free agent by the San Antonio Spurs in 1997, and quickly became one of their more popular players due to his displays of hustle, defense, and skill despite being undersized. Rose was on the Spurs' NBA championship teams in 1999 and 2003. On February 24, 2005, Rose was traded along with a pair of first-round draft picks to the New York Knicks for Nazr Mohammed and Jamison Brewer, much to the dismay of Spurs fans. A highlight during his tenure with the Knicks was a 10-point, 15-rebound and 9-assist performance in a 94–93 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on April 18, 2007,[2] just missing a triple-double. After being relegated to a minor supporting role for the Knicks for four years, Rose was traded from the Knicks to the Oklahoma City Thunder on February 19, 2009 for Chris Wilcox.[3]

One of Rose's most memorable games occurred during the opening round of the 2002 Playoffs against the Seattle SuperSonics. With star front court players Tim Duncan and David Robinson out, Rose stepped in as a starter. Bringing the Spurs back from a 26-point half-time deficit, the Spurs eventually lost by 12 but not before making a contest of the game. Malik had 28 points and 13 rebounds for the game.[4]

Post NBA career[edit]

The Oklahoma City Thunder renounced the rights to Rose on December 22, 2009.[5]

Rose joined the Madison Square Garden Network as a pregame analyst for his former Knicks team for the 2009-2010 season. He was also named the color analyst for the NBA Developmental League team, the Austin Toros, who broadcast their games on television for the first time.[6]

On December 20, 2011, Rose was hired as color commentator for the Philadelphia 76ers television broadcasts.

On November 15, 2014, Rose made his first appearance for NBA TV
