Video: Brandon Jennings vs Josh Selby Pt. 2

The hyped rematch!


Summer ball certainly has its pluses—genuine love and excitement from players and fans; players getting big 1-on-1 (Brandon Jennings allegedly dropped 25+ and Josh Selby went for 40+). And did we mention the buildup? Their first showdown last month was just as epic.

    oh my, i give this to Selby…Jennings needs to be in the weight room, but it looks like his confidence may be building…but Jennings NEEDS to be in the weight room…too small right now…

  • Patrick

    SELBY!!! Oh Kansas what could’ve been. Here’s hoping the kid does big things in the L.

  • Bimmer

    The only defensive play was Jennings getting ripped. So I give the matchup to Selby also. Still, Jennings confidence sure has skyrocketed.

  • bmorezbest

    dont let that year at KU fool you that system didnt mesh wit SELBY he destroys everybody

  • oh noes

    the defense on both ends is great…

    That High School three point line really flubs up how impressive that should have been.

  • DieselMechanic

    still surprised selby slipped to 2nd rd

    Those jumpers look so smooth in slowmo.

  • kbj

    man they made some of those contested three pointers look like layups

  • Showtime

    B Jennings & wall get my MVP of summer award../.

  • henry

    this rivalry might be as entertaining, or even moreso, than KD’s tour across the country

  • http://bleacherreport.com/articles/791470-lebron-james-vs-dwyane-wade-who-is-the-better-player/page/8 nbk

    That award has gotta go to Kevin Durant doesn’t it? He’s been murdering every summer league/pro-am in the country

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    ^ Yes

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Uh ya gunna give the guy that dropped 66 the nod… All around fun summer ball to watch between Wall, Jennings, Nick Young and Durantula tho.

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    Nick Young also put up 60, so….. maybe we should give him an award too.

  • ICE3

    yeah man jennings wall and durant have been killing it its fun to watch

  • fruizm

    I hate it sooo much when a smartass comments “great defense” or something like that….I.HATE.IT.

  • MLK4Life

    Jennings can do all this in the summer, but what is he going to do when the NBA returns? That’s the important question.

    young buck definitely the second cumming of ai

  • T-Money

    jennings is balling but scott skiles must be drinking scotch right about now. this is exactly why jennings has a below 40% fg in the L.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Not really T-Money, his outside jumper isn’t bad at all if he controls it. Not saying he doesn’t get a little trigger happy, but the main reason for the low fg% is his lack of being able to finish at the rim. His jump shot is slick, he just needs to start getting easier buckets(layups).

  • http://bleacherreport.com/articles/791470-lebron-james-vs-dwyane-wade-who-is-the-better-player/page/8 nbk

    Ima have to agree with Lakeshow on this. Although Jennings still needs to improve from the outside, he’s a little below average from outside, but nothing that’s too big of an issue. Finishing around the hoop is a glaring weakness though, definitely not the second coming of AI that’s for sure.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    ^^but ya gotta admit he looks like AI quite a bit out there. His jump shot looks similar. His quickness and ability to get in the passing lanes reminds me of AI also. Obviously a destitute mans version of AI though lol. nbk, who you think is gunna be better overall Irving, or Jennings?(i know we haven’t seen K-Irv at all, but i’m trying to get a read on how good he is)

  • robb

    I like Jennings and dislike Iverson, but AI was something else.

  • http://www.yomamajokes.com LilKDub503

    @fruizm: I hate that too. I also hate the “God I wish I was Black” comments. Stupidest thing ever.

  • Jer Dawg

    I’m hyped up just watching the summertime battles between the pros and other ballers. Dope. Straight out dope.

  • http://dsjfklfl.com Jukai

    Man, Selby is ripping sh*t. I may have been totally wrong on the dude.

  • Heals

    Uggghhh, to have only been in the gym for that one. Gotta love long J’s comin out of crosses and behind-the-back dribbles. Also on the long Jennings 3, it’s like “but what if he misses,” who cares he didn’t…

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Real late my bad Lakeshow i had a game tonight. But i dont know offensively i think Irving will be more consistent and efficient but idk how he’ll be as a defender. Jennings is always going to be more exploaive and has more potential regardless of experience. But tough to say right now. Props for that comparison though, i think they will be in the same class as point guards, a step below elite.

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Brandon Jennings will be an ALL STAR next year. BOOK IT!!!

  • T-Money

    let’s see… d-wade, d-rose, deron, rondo, joe johnson, john wall… should i stop there? i can keep going.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8df2zCpypk IAMORANGE4EVER

    2010-11 D-Rose reminds me the most of 2000-01 Allen Iverson. Just sayin.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Clearly y’all don’t remember Iverson. Jennings is more like Isiah than Iverson. Iverson was a straight force of nature early in is career. He just attacked, attacked, attacked.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Max

    Selby the steal of the draft?

  • LP

    A little below average = Terrible = 40% …the jump shot needs work, point blank.

  • LP

    also, i cant believe some of you are comparing Jennings to AI… totally different games…AI CAN finish at the rim. and he would just blow by you, no questions, no playing with the ball, etc…AI also has a better jumper. AI also averaged more assist. AI also scored easier.. AI also was right handed (they dont shoot the same)…be careful, guys

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    You be “careful” LP, and AP, wtf you talking about. I said he looks kinda like him. As in Kobe looks kinda like Mike. They shoot similarly and have a similar style and handle. Geezwhiz. Not like anyone actually said they are goingto have similar careers. READ please. NBK, thanks for getting back man. Hope your game went well.(as in a W)

  • http://bleacherreport.com/articles/791470-lebron-james-vs-dwyane-wade-who-is-the-better-player/page/8 nbk

    Good lookin out, we got that win. Almost let them shoot their way back in, but we held it out.
