Class Act

Good luck comparing Brandon Jennings to someone else.

Brandon Jennings

Can he make it in Europe? Should he have made the move to skip college? Will this start a trend among top high school players? All of these are valid questions. One that isn’t so valid: Does Brandon Jennings have game and style all his own? Well, that one’s pretty simple. — Adam Fleischer

    I’m just happy that he went to Europe in the first place.

    real question: which of this dozen nicknames will stick in the league

    He’ll be better than Ricky Rubio. No doubts.

  • RuPaul

    The lower pic. He has no legs below the knees?

    Squad – his best ones are “Young Money” because that’s what he even has on his UnderArmour shoes, and then “Doo Bee Doo”

    He’s gotta grow back the hi-top fade.

    Ben, I hope so. My favorite moment in my short sports writing life was when he whooped Dallas in overtime by himself, screaming 52 is over into the fans at the SMU gym… I’ll never forget it.

    I really hope the whole Euro-inexperience didn’t hurt this dude. Possible Rookie of the Year right here.

    Was this article just to show his pictures? He doesn’t look like anyone else no. Lot of NBA players started their professional careers overseas. Maybe they went to college but then you have players that went straight to the NBA before the rule change. We also have international players in the league who have have been playing European professional ball since the age of 15. I don’t see what the point of this feature was about. It’s kind of lazy.

    check out the dudes dew. Reminds me of younger Scottie Pippen.

    @Allen Walker, yes. Everything you wrote after your first question was pointless.

  • konweezy

    If he went to Zona they woulda been nasty, and imagine if Bayless stayed…Damn Wise would of never seen the court

    @Boing Dynasty- Your response was is pointless. You took the time out of your day… To tell me that. You logged onto this page, read the article, skimmed through the comments and then you decided the best thing to do here… Is tell me that. Then you probably logged off of the page feeling accomplished. Like, you sure did show Allen Walker who’s hot and who’s not. How about you spend the rest of you life watching homosexual Sam Cassell youtube videos, and keep my name out your mouth.

    It seems you missed the point. 30 word features? Lazy? Look at the pretty pictures and stfu.

  • Ned Mahony

    Brandon Jennings is the man. My favourite player not in the NBA and most likely to be become my favourite fullstop. (or period ;) )
