The All-Too-Brief Basketball Career Of Reggie Rose

On Monday night, TNT play-by-play man Kevin Harlan welcomed Reggie Rose to the NBA, excitedly shouting his name on several instances. Signed by the Timberwolves, Reggie Rose scored 17 points in a Game 4 loss to the Rockets, and somehow, in his NBA debut, already appeared to be on his last legs.

During Game 5 on Wednesday night, Harlan— by now aware of the bizarre cadence he had used to address his colleague Reggie Miller—killed Reggie Rose with a choice comma. Or, more accurately, “comma.” We also mourn the loss of Reggies Teague, Paul, Wiggins, Ariza, Gordon, and Green.
