Brandon Jennings, Through a Mother’s Eyes

Out in Vegas, our own Holly MacKenzie caught up with B-Jennings and the woman who brought him into this world: “How is it being a mother, to watch your son be misconceived in the media? [Alice] Knox handles that simply, stealing a line from her basketball playing son, ‘It is what it is. There is nothing I can do, I’m not going to get upset about it. I’ve gotten used to it but it’s worse when you’re in the NBA because everyone nitpicks every little thing you do, for me, I can’t get upset.’ Has Brandon always marched to the beat of his own drum? ‘Always. Either you love him or you hate him, but that’s him.’ How will his career unfold, since the path has been an unconventional one to say the least, ‘He’s going to get to where he wants to get to. He’s going to work to get there.”‘

    Great story, Hollyhood. Gotta love Young Buck.

    Jennings is already a success story. Can’t wait for Jeremy Tyler to start wrecking house in a couple years also.

    Too bad he is playing in Milwaukee and won’t get any national TV coverage.

    ^That is such b.s. I’d much rather watch the Bucks than the Clips. Blake Griffin is nice, but 29 times? No.

    Yeah Holly.

    Brad: Really? Are you joking?
    Clippers roster:
    Baron Davis, Eric Gordon, Al Thorton, Blake Griffin and Marcus Camby…off the bench Telfair, Kaman, and Jordan! Hell even Ricky BUckets is a bit entertaining!
    Bucks Roster:
    Brandon Jennings, Michael Redd, Alexander, Moute and Bogut… and what… I mean… Ridnour? Bell?

    But skipping that future e-argument, great article Holly!

    Thanks for the SLAM-loving, guys. I’m really excited to watch him go to work this year. Jones, I take this as my way of knowing you’ve read? Mutoni…..Check your email in a few. :)

    The Bucks are losing Sessions. They just lost Rich Jefferson. If they didn’t have Brandon Jennings there would be almost no reason to watch them at all.
    But, they made a wise draft pick (unlike the Knicks), so I’ll be following my man Jennings. For sure.
