? So former NBA star Jalen rose joining us now in social square just written a grit book called "Got to give the people what they want" chronicling his remarkable life story growing up in inner city Detroit. 13 years in the NBA and we cannot for get being part of the fab five at the university of Michigan. Now his life as an analyst at ESPN a know what type of cloud that is. It looks like to me a contrail so it's condensation behind a plane or rocket and looks like it got blown which the bends. Cirrus clouds also up this there. There's a couple different things going on. We thank you for your question, and, parent, send us your kid's weather video questions using the Love little Colton. All right. Robin. All right, ginger. Coming up,meror NBA star Jalen rose here live. Going that talk to Lara. Come on back. Car, it's totally overpacked, don't know where you're going and hear four freshmen screaming your name and there they were. Your brothers.

Because the guy that's not going to go on to be an NBA basketball player might go to the back of the truck of his car and have something to say about what you were talking about on the court so you got to be careful. Let me ask why did you decide now, Jalen, to write the book. Because I'm at a different point in my life and the basketball era, being an all-american in high school, being a member of the fab five, playing in the NBA, now I'm in the full-fledged entertainment business. I'm the next Michael Strahan. Yes, you are. You're the man, Jalen. Ah. Oh. I love you. Ki dunk on you. Yes. Alley-oop. Oh. Everybody, the name of the book is "Got to give the people what they want."
