Former NBA star Jalen Rose was just sentenced to serve 20 days in jail -- four months after he crashed his car into a ditch during an alleged drunk driving incident in Michigan back in March.

TMZ broke the story ... the 38-year-old ex-Fab Fiver was driving along an icy roadway with a female passenger on March 11 when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed, flipping the car.

When cops arrived, Rose agreed to undergo several roadside sobriety tests -- and was eventually arrested for DUI.

Along with the jail time, Rose was also sentenced to 1 year of probation.

So far, no word on when Rose is set to serve his time.

Ok, Ok, Ok. Jalen Rose is a great guy. He does great things in his community. He has never been in trouble with the law before. That is all perfectly fine. He made an error in judgment and drove after consuming alcohol. We can assume that he learned a significant lesson and will never to it again and is eternally remorseful. Ok, let's say all that is true. BUT BUT BUT!!! He had a high BAC and wrecked his car, ROLLING it over with a passenger in the car. He is damn lucky that there were no injuries and I think the sentence reflects that the judge is pissed that the accident and possible injury occurred. If it had been a .08, by himself, no not signaling a right turn, then I would agree.

Who cares about this cheater anyway??? Also he is racist against his own race. I don't like him at all. I wish he would have gotten a year in jail, so i don't have to see his face on espn. maybe he will be fired.
