    A new book says Sarah Palin and former NBA star Glen Rice had an intimate relationship in the 1980s.

    Turns out, Palin was a sports reporter in Alaska back in 1987.

    “Sarah hooked up with the NBA great, then a 6-foot-8 junior at the University of Michigan when he was playing in a college basketball tournament in Alaska in 1987, the book says. At the time, Sarah, just out of college, was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU.

    “A publishing source told The ENQUIRER that McGinniss claims Sarah had a “fetish” for black men at the time and he quotes a friend as saying Sarah had “hauled (Rice’s) ass down.”

    “In the book, McGinniss quotes Rice as confirming the one-night stand.”
