Jalen Rose turns 40 on Wednesday. The ESPN analyst has been a basketball fixture for the past two decades, first as a member of Michigan's Fab Five and later as a key cog on the Pacers team that advanced to the 2000 NBA Finals. He also played for the Nuggets, Bulls, Raptors, Knicks and Suns. Here's a look back at Rose's career in photos.
