Jalen Rose was one of the best scorers in the 2000 playoffs.
Rose, an ambassador for the BetMGM online sportsbook which offers basketball betting odds, tallied several statistics that stand out in the lore of the NBA. Among them, he tallied 479 points during that 2000 postseason.
That ties him for 84th all-time in the NBA, equal to performances by Jerry West, Rick Barry, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Manu Ginobili.
Here are a few of Rose’s other remarkable numbers.

Jalen Rose Records Career-Best Assist and Shooting Numbers Early
In the wake of his college career, Rose began his time as a pro on a high note.
With the Denver Nuggets, Rose earned all All-Rookie recognition during the 1994-95 season. The following year, he played the best of his career in some areas.
He averaged 6.2 assists per game and made 48% of his shots, both career bests. As he became more of a focal point on offense and took more shots, those numbers weren’t quite the same. But his ability to shoot at a high clip and set others up for success illustrated how intelligent he was right away.

But the next year takes that honor. As a small forward, he tallied 22.1 points per game in 2002-03. No matter where he played, he quickly adapted to his new environments and continued to benefit his new teams.
