Photo Story: “The Truce” – Starring Jalen Rose, Grant Hill and Mike Krzyzewski

Thanks to the documentary that aired Sunday night on ESPN, one of the hottest topics in the sports world this week has been the Fab 5 – some 20 years after they were the most talked about and watched team in college basketball.

It should go without saying that the reaction to said documentary has been decidedly mixed.

Many people, including our own Jon Washburn, had positive things to say about it. Others, like Jason Whitlock, thought it was more fantasy than documentary. Grant Hill, who was spoken of in unflattering terms in the doc, went so far as to write an editorial in the New York Times expressing his disappointment.

How do I feel about it? Frankly, I think the truth lies where it usually lies: in the middle. Some of the comments by Jalen Rose and Jimmy King that set off the firestorm of controversy were curt and unflattering, no question; but the reaction from Hill and teammate Bobby Hurley, among others, failed to take into the account the true context of the comments that offended them.

Luckily, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski decided to confront Jalen Rose about his comments, which ultimately led to a burying of the hatchet. Don’t believe me? The photographic evidence is pretty clear below.
