This clip comes from ESPN's postgame coverage from Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.  Near the end of the game, Tony Allen of the Grizzlies got a flagrant foul from Manu Ginobili.  Even though the call was fairly accurate, Allen writhed on the ground like David Luiz, holding his head that was never touched.

After the game, Jalen Rose had a great line planned for the occasion… and messed it up.

"Whether it was a flagrant foul or not, Tony Allen, Pulitzer Prize winner."

Of course, the Pulitzer is for writing and not acting, as the rest of the ESPN set pointed out.  Maybe ESPN NBA Countdown can win the Pulitzer for Best Studio Show one of these days and finally beat Inside the NBA.
