He's going to be very good, hes athletic and he can give you some youtube moments on the court but can score in a variety of ways but will need to improve his 3 pt shooting.

Best Case Scenario:Cross between Kenny Anderson & Stephon Marbury
Worst Case Scenario:Sebastian Telfair

Basically took the words right out of my mouth. I see a lot of Steve Francis in him, too, and I could see him having a similar career. Europe seems to have helped him grow up a bit, although hopefully it didn't dampen his swagger too much.

I'd take him in Golden State. I think if he had of gone to college here he would have been one of the top 3 picks perhaps but he chose to go for the money oversees and I don't blame him. He'll still end up a lottery pick after an average season in Europe.

Doesn't seem like he did, if bjennings3 is his real twitter account anyway. During the lotto he twittered something like "the nba draft is all about getting that 2nd contract! show your stuff for 3 years then get paid!!"

He didnt really chose to go overseas, he just couldnt pass his entrance exam into UA so they wouldnt let him in

He didnt try to go to college, usually most recruits will work their ass off for the final 2 quarters of HS to get eligible for college but he chose not to after Sonny Vaccaro got in his ear.

I probably would go his route also, He has a big endorsement deal with Under Armour and his Official Shoe will be coming soon.

Brandon's nickname is Young Money.

His swagger,his style of play,etc has basically made him LA's verson of a young Stephon Marbury.

Default Re: Brandon Jennings

I've seen nowhere near enough of him to say he'll be anything more than a very exciting player who'll put a few butts in seats. No clue if he'll be a capable starting 1. But his career development is going to be one of the more interesting storylines over the next few seasons for me. If he'd been eligible at Zona his stock'd be much higher, not just because of the much easier access to his game for scouts and the average fan, but because the talent level of the competition is DRASTICALLY lower.

I can't decide if I like his cockiness or not. How many coddled high school kids can you expect to play in a high quality pro league, with spotty minutes, playing out of position (from what I've been told)? Remember Saras's NBA experiment, at what, 28 years old? Imagine trying the same thing a decade younger.
