Video: The Brandon Jennings Official Mixtape

NBA Ready.

Because this isn’t your everyday video, we’ll explain why we like it in this fashion: There’s everything to love. For one, it’s focused on SLAM’s man Brandon Jennings. That’s a good thing. It’s also a near five-minute feast of never before seen, high-quality high school footage — basically a virtual treasure trove. That’s dope. And Tyson Johnston aka Domino, one of our favorite mixemakers, was back on his inspired producing when he threw the highlights together. That’s cake as well (careful with the binge editing, homie!).

What it adds up to is a mix that does little wrong and pretty much everything right. Sorta like the playa himself. We’ll save some breath about his game now, because praise will be heavy come November.

    I haven’t seen him pay in the summer league yet – what’s going on with his hair? I can’t tell in the photo, but it looks like he is growing something funky again.

  • http://www.hoopsmanifesto.blogspot.com Jeff Fox

    Play in the summer league, not pay.

  • http://slamonline.com Ben Osborne

    So dope.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    He’s not as quick as a thought, but he’s got nice overall speed. His handle is pretty good, although his dribble is a little high. I like the form on his shot, no quirks in the release, but he has that Lebron diseas where he fades a lot on his shots.
    But, what’s amazing is his freakish athleticism. That kid gets up for real.

    Sick ball handling. This dude is hyped for a reason. Great mixtape!

    Brandon Jennings and Scott Skiles are the new A.I. and Larry Brown. Hopefully, in a good way. He may make me break down and buy a Bucks jersey.

    Dude is ready to tear it up very soon.

    Allen, I’m actually changing my stance on the whole fading thing. If you put in the hours and do it THE SAME WAY EVERY SINGLE TIME, it creates nice separation b/n you and the defender.

    Wow. Impressive. Real nice handles, and like Z said his shot is pretty consistent. Great video.

    BallIsLife represent. By the way guys, I am a new editor on BIL. As my man DP says, play wit it.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Did anybody notice that a poster got the F-word through?

  • yao’s foot

    CANNOT believe the knicks passed on this guy. his speed, creativity, and flair are perfect for d’antoni’s system. isiah would’ve drafted him!

  • http://ballislife.com Moose

    I just tried and it didn’t work, Allenp. Guess he’s the only one!

  • WhaHuh

    He doesnt play like this anymore, europe changed him. Sometimes he looks passive in summerleague

  • http://www.realcavsfans.com Anton

    Until Brandon meets his mortal enemy: a light gust of wind.

  • that dude

    how the hell did michaeldott do that?

  • http://slamonline.com Brad Long

    Congrats Moose A. Moose.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    michaeldott used the f-word in a non-offensive way. I moderated it because I believe it has many meanings, and this was OK.

  • http://ballislife.com Tyson

    You ma boy Ryne, great article thanks a lot for posting.

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ Double R

    Does anyone know what the music is?

  • JoeMaMa

    it was a positive f-word.
    Like, I f*cking love Eddy Curry’s weight loss! He’ll get alllll the limo drivers now!!!

  • frank

    kids got handles

  • http://ballislife.com Moose

    I didn’t know that the moderation was personally handled, Ryne. Touche. Thanks a lot, B. Long. You need to become a member on BIL!

    Not that it matters anymore, though. But still.

  • niQ

    nice vid. but sometimes i have to stop it cause the camera shots give me a headache

  • http://www.broy7.com nate the great

    man!! im so hyped up to see him in the nba!! like really!!!!!!!
    GOSH!! im excited!!

  • Rusty

    dude looks good but he needs to hit the gym, right now i could woop his ass with one arm

  • http://sjsu.edu davidR

    i know how teddy yao’s foot feel (well, not yao’s real foot). was disappointed the warriors took curry over brandon. why do the warriors need curry when morrow is on the team? a backcourt of jennings-monta would’ve been super dope. plus, nellie wouldve had the creative point his system needs.

  • stokesey

    dang, to be honest never seen much footage of the dude, that is some deep 3 balls he’s shooting… perfect for a D’Antoni offense, but already with un undersized/hyper atheletic pg in Nate Rob i can see why they passed, hopefully he can shine with the Bucks

  • http://nationofmillions.ca ciolkstar


  • Esco

    It’s cool to see that dude actually looks like he’s having fun on the court. A nice change from all the mean-mugging and pseudo-thugging…

  • http://adfji.com Jukai

    I’d love to say something that hasn’t already been said, but I can’t. So instead, I’ll just repost to get a point across.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Yeah, Donnie Walsh must have been napping.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    he is still nowhere near what Sessions is. What this dude does in the summer leauge is impressive. What Ramon Sessions does in the NBA when given a chance is something more…

  • http://adfji.com Jukai

    what’s your love with Sessions, dude? I don’t think the guy’s that good.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    have you seen him play? If you have, you’ll get it, if you havent/you just know of him you wont. Of course, in a typical Jukai response you will claim you did witness Ramon but was not impressed; yet deep down the lying will get to you.

  • http://www.slamonline.com wayno

    I still will never buy a Bucks jersey…

  • Ken

    Dude is gonna play under Skiles. That means that if you wait half a season, you won’t have to worry about buying a Bucks jersey.
