Video: Brandon Jennings @ Drew League

BallisLife brought us DeMar DeRozan highlights at the Drew League earlier this week. Of course, long-time friend Brandon Jennings was in L.A. getting his as well. BJennings was showing out during his first two games at the LA Drew League (and getting his grub on at Roscoe’s in between):

    It amazes me that most NBA players can only use the dominant.

    @mike – damn right (though I live in Alaska these days) but ain’t NO WAY Jennings is better than Rose right now. In 5 years? We’ll see. But now? No.

  • DreXnaW21

    Derrick Rose is better than Brandon Jennings.

  • SirFreshness

    Hey really loves his left hand huh? I have never seen him finish with his right, and he rarely drives right either.

  • deano


    If you’ve ever seen him play you know how well he handles with his off hand…..he’s not breaking out the bag of tricks in the DL….Drew Leauge rather

  • http://www.dimemag.com Royal

    ^^^^^ I respect his off-hand handle, but he has trouble finishing with his right hand,which is why he always goes back to his left when finishing ( reverse, or using his left hand for a layup on the right side). Being a left handed guard myself I understand how hard finishing with your right hand can be, but dude is an NBA player he should be more advanced.

    Mad love to BallisLife though, they always bring it with the dopest videos and hottest beats.

    Not a young AI, not a young Steph. Kenny Anderson is probably a good comparison.

  • Harlem_World

    Alot of people done forgot about CP3. All we hear is how Rondo is that guy now (nope). Rose is better than Rondo and Jennings isn’t at Rondo level yet. As of right now, CP3 is better than all of em. Derron is no.1, then CP3, then you can argue the rest. Jennings is nice but got a LONG way to go before he enters into that top 5 pg convo.

    Brandon Jennings has one of the nicest jumpers I have ever seen. His step back is crazy.

  • paolo

    Jennings has to start making layups with his right hand, like those at 0:53, 1:06 shows in inability to finish with right

  • haters hate

    man his crossover is sick! gotta love the young buck

    I was thinking Kenny Anderson while watching this video, too. Being left-handed made it official, but the crossover and inconsistent jumper solidify it (although Kenny never really shot it from deep).

  • ripslam

    @mike: There’s this dude called Rajon Rondo who had a couple of, y’know, pretty good games now and then. 29-18-13 what?

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com Seth

    The dream shake is becoming a popular move (0:50). I like it.

  • mike

    @ripslam: There’s this other dude who’s 3 years younger than Rondo who led his otherwise talent-deprived team to the playoffs in his rookie season. He also put up a 55-point game while playing for one of the L’s most demanding defensive coaches. Did I mention he managed to ball in Europe for a year as a teenager before successfully making the jump to the NBA where he produced one of the best seasons for a rookie guard in history?

  • WolfNast

    This kid is sick. Need his shoes.

  • b

    This dude is awesome, and if he ain’t have an off hand he wouldn’t be in the league. And y use the off hand if they can’t stop the left, some people must not b a hooper if they jus tryin to trash his game. Dude is sick

    You know, there’s even another PG who averaged 16/11 while shooting 50/40/90 and leading his team to the conference finals. Steve Nash is a top 3 PG in the league, or better. Let’s get off the jocks of the young guys for a second and show some respect. That said, I like Jennings and think he’s got a bright future.

  • henry

    looks like hes filling out his frame a lil more. after he adds strength to his sick speed, gameover

  • badnews

    I don’t see why you have to use your weak hand if nobody can stop your dominant hand…

  • http://www.dimemag.com Royal

    The NBA has things called “scouting reports” that tell you a
    players weakness. Brandon’s “scouting report” most likely includes “does
    not use his right hand as well as his left”. I’m assuming thats one of the
    reasons Brandon struggled somewhat in some stages of the season is because defenders began forcing him right.But I’m a fan of his game, he just needs
    to continue improving (as all players do)

  • http://aol.com Rj

    he gets up i dont understand why he doesnt throw down when he plays in the L. If he’s not gonna dunk he should at least get up there and finish stronger because got blocked at the rim way too often for that this season. you dont see that happening to DRose or westbrook. he’s gotta start taking it stronger

  • onlyclipsfanonslam

    I’m with JoeMama Steve Nash gets no respect. Even after this playoff run where we learned just how tough the man is.
