Retired NBA player Jalen Rose has stepped up following a publicized $100,000 challenge Rick Ross made on his LeBron James-less Miami Heat having a better season record than the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rose publicly said he would match Ross’ big bet.

“You know how we do it famly! Put your money up, bawwwse!,” Rose said on an ESPN broadcast. “That’s right. I heard that you feel that the Miami Heat are going to have a better record than the Cleveland Cavaliers. Good luck with that one! And you know I’m good for the money, homie! So just reach out to me and let’s make this bet right now. A hundred [thousand dollars]. For everyone that follows him on Twitter and vice-versa, let the homie know.” (ESPN)

In a recent interview, Ricky Rozay said he would put $100,000 on a Heat/Cavs bet.

Even though he admits LeBron is “one of the greatest if not the greatest ever,” it ain’t gonna stop big homie from plotting the demise of King James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. In fact, during a recent interview with Funkmaster Flex on NYC’s Hot 97, the rapper Rick Ross boasted that he’d drop a hundred stacks on his Miami Heat beating ‘Bron-‘Bron and his steamers in the 2014 NBA season. “We most definitely finishing better than the Cavaliers,” Rozay say. “I’ll put a 100 grand on that.” (Miami New Times)

Over the summer, Young Money’s Drake said he tried to get the inside scoop on Bron’s decision to leave the Heat before it became official.

“I think for the last week and a half I’ve probably been bothering LeBron as much as the press has trying to figure out what his decision was going to be. I think we were all extremely intrigued by what stage of his life he’s in. And I don’t think there’s a better way to deal with it than what he just did. I think if we were to give out an award at the ESPYS for incredible essay writing, I would definitely love to present that to him because I think that what he just did was patriotic in its own way, was courageous, and I think it’s going to obviously be one of the most historic things of our generation.” (Stereo Gum)

Back in July, Ross put his personal issues to the side and thanked Bron for his contributions to the Heat over the past four seasons.

“Gotta Respect @KingJames family/business decision after 4 Eastern Conference Championships • 2 NBA Championships and coming to my @wingstop,” Ross tweeted July 11. (Rick Ross’ Twitter)
