The man dubbed Doo Bee Doo by Cool Bob Love turns 22 today, and the SLAM Fam would like to extend a very happy birthday his way. Brandon Jennings put in work this past summer, and his work ethic and ability to connect with the fans has been impressive. Whether it be collabing with the Under Armour creative department for innovative ideas or taking his game to the streets and hooping anytime and anywhere, Jennings has managed to keep his name in the news and on the tip of every NBA fan’s tongue this summer. Along with Kevin Durant, he owned the summer hoops circuit and had a buzzworthy highlight damn near everyday .
We’ve been documenting Jennings every step of the way, so it was only right we put together the gallery above in honor of the man’s born day. Click through the photos above to see the Milwaukee guard’s three SLAM/KICKS covers, along with some portraits photographer Atiba Jefferson shot of him during the SLAM 135 cover shoot. Happy bday, Young Buck!
