He said it now but i thought it was pretty clear that it was a detailed and powerful statement on his thinking at the time. I'm sure a lot of kids growing up in his situation feel the same way, and who the hell am i to pass judgement? Anyway, while his phrasing might have been a bit off, i thought grown-up Jalen came off as being respectful of Hill, Laetner et al. As a result, i'm somewhat surprised by the controversy this has generated.
