Jalen Rose Thinks 11-Year-Old Golf Star Plays Different Sport (VIDEO)

ESPN’s NBA Draft Lottery coverage on Tuesday night coincided with its broadcast of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat, which meant viewers got draft analysis from Bill Simmons, Doug Collins and Jalen Rose.

Before the lottery took place, Rose went on an impassioned rant against the league’s proposed 20-year-old age minimum, with one tiny error.

The “tennis prospect” Rose refers to is actually golf prospect Lucy Li, who is set to become the youngest competitor in the history of the U.S. Women’s Open golf tournament at age 11.

That event takes place next month at Pinehurst while the U.S. Open women’s tennis tournament is in August.

No word on if the Cavs are considering Li for the #1 overall pick, though.
