Brandon Jennings Has Lofty Goals for Next Season

Jennings tells the Journal Sentinel about his aspirations for the upcoming season: “On Thursday, Jennings found it hard to believe when rap star Ludacris simply dropped in for a few minutes during the opening day of the player’s three-day youth basketball camp at Homestead High School. But Jennings already is focusing a bit on the Bucks’ prospects for the coming season and setting some goals of his own. ‘This year I’m working hard to come back,’ Jennings said. ‘I want to be a double-double guy. I feel like with the talent we have I can be that. All-star weekend is in Los Angeles, and that is a goal to be an all-star. Win 50 games, win the Central Division and get out of the first round and see what happens.’”

    Those sound like realistic goals to me…. It’s not like he said he wanted to average a triple double and win the next 10 championships.

    1 – The Bucks improved significantly, and appear to have roster stablity. Salmons will go through an entire training camp, so will Gooden. CDR is coming in as well. Coach Skiles can also add more complexity to their systems. They’ll improve on both sides of the ball.
    2 – He’s going to be a better player next year obviously.
    3 – Hopefully the Bucks will have Bogut down low the entire season.
    4 – Depending on match-ups they could very well get to the 2nd round.
    5 – Bogut is their most “all-star worthy” player though. And UNLESS the Bucks are on track for 50 wins, I don’t see Jennings getting a look in.

    very possible.. jennings can for sure average 8 or 9 assist along with prolly bout 18 or 19 points per game.. the bucks will almost for sure win 50 games next year it would be hard for them not to.. and jennings, being in the eastern conference and being a point guard, has a very good chance of becoming an all-star.. and who knows they might just win the central division.. love jennings game and if he ever develops a consistant j then watch out cause this dude could be a very very dangerous player

    yeah he could do alot of his individual goals and the bucks improved alot over free agency. Keep in mind this team almost beat the hawks without andrew bogut so yea all of the goals are very realistic

    What? My fantasy basketball senses are tingling.

    I’m very excited to watch Brandon and the Bucks this year.

    I want to be a double-double guy—Maybe
    Win 50 games—Maybe
    win the Central Division—Going to Chi
    get out of the first round—Maybe

    So he’s kinda right… 80% anyway

  • http://google c_cantrell

    dude central divison is goin to be a dog fight between the bucks n bulls so dont give to chi-town yet

  • unrel

    @NiQ.. he’s a FG% buster..

  • unrel

    i like b.jennings.. but do i see him outplaying d.rose and rondo for an all-star spot?.. hmmm…

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    @unrel. Yea, I know that much, but I’m just assuming with all the new acquisitions that his FG% would at least be a little more efficient. I could be wrong but hey, I’ve been wrong before.hahah

  • unrel

    i hear you.. i had him on my squad last year for a bit.. and he killed my FG%.. but there were no other PGs out there at the time..

  • slamfan4life

    @ c-cantrell

    You’re joking right?

  • rob stewart

    @Ben Osborne
    thanks for the pic. It’s crazy that Ludacris is actually bigger(muscle/mass) than Brandon Jennings. I amazed that BJ can get through an entire season being that small

  • http://google c_cantrell

    no not at all.. if anyone is gna give the bulls a run it will be the bucks

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    I Isiah was the Knicks GM, Brandon Jennings would have been a Knick, so to all yall Isiah haters, he drafts well and what have Dntoni really done for the Knicks since Isiah left. NOTHING. Brandon is a great player already to me. He will be top 5 point guard in the league in two years. BOOK IT!!

  • http://google c_cantrell

    ^the seed..
    agree bout jennings bein a top 5 point guard in 2 years

  • http://www.slamonline.com JL

    37% FG … he can’t shoot worth crap. and that’s with his hot start to the season.

  • Tyler

    ^the seed
    I couldn’t agree with you more Brandon was a beast last year and in my opinion the ROY!D Rose and the rest of the point guards better be lookin over there shoulder next season.

  • unrel

    @JL… it’s more of his shot selection than his shooting ability.. dribble, pull up 3s over a defender vs teams leaving him open to miss..

  • http://google c_cantrell

    and as far as his fg% goes he should be super confident after takin the bucks to the playoffs.. look for him to improve his shot tremendously

  • Yesse

    I don’t think it’s impossible, but will see.

  • JTaylor21

    C’mon son any one who believes in the seeds comments needs to be exiled. Top 5 point in 2 yrs, where they do that at? So ur telling me that he’s gonna be as good as Cp/Dwill/Drose/TP/JWall in 2 years? the same guy that shot 37 freaking % last year, damn, even AI didn’t come close to shooting that bad.

  • http://google c_cantrell

    i believe he can be just as good if not better than tony parker for sure in 2 years and john wall is not even tested yet.. no one even knows what he can do so we really cant say he is better than someone who led his team to the playoffs last year as a rookie

  • irrelevantly relevant

    Top 5 pg???

  • http://google c_cantrell

    ^irrelevantly relevant..
    yes that is what i said.. top 5 pg.. congrats on showing everyone that u posess the ability to read

  • Coney Islander

    Sounds doable.

  • total scrotal implosion

    Cantrell doesnt ‘posess’ the ability to spell

  • rob stewart

    He can be a top 5 point
    1 CP3
    2 Dwill
    3 Rose
    4 Jennings
    5 fill in the blank
    Tony Parker will be slower and less durable by then

  • WangChung

    John Wall hasn’t been tested yet, but his speed and hops are Rose/Wade level. Dude undeniably has more upside than Young Money, or Young Buck, or whatever he’s calling himself these days.

  • rainman10

    In 2 years

  • jayfromdachi

    Central division goin to da bulls yall n for da all star u guys forgot about DROSE RONDO n DWADE dey top 3 in da east so good luck but jennings does have a game i enjoy watchin him play

  • http://fsdkjlf.com Jukai

    rob stewart: Throw in John Wall in there. Play wit it (cause book it! sucks)

  • http://fsdkjlf.com Jukai

    Actually, damn, maybe Rondo and Rubio will be up there too. Toughie. Point guards are mint these days.

  • KB

    the bucks are deeper than the bulls so they can win the division. as for the double double its more than possible its likely. and he can be the third point guard behind rondo and rose on the all-star team cause hes at least as good as devin harris

  • Red

    Dickriders. BJ sucks bad, I’ll put John Wall before him. Bulls are way more in-depth, we would’ve blown Bucks out if not for our injuries.

  • Jazz

    Brandon jennings is a good player but he will have to pay a lot of dues before talking All Star. Look how long it took D Will. first and formost he will have to come in this year and show that last year was not a fluke. Plus he has to show he can play Defense. i wish the best for him

  • http://google c_cantrell

    think u need to shut your mouth

  • Shem

    To be honest, I think Jennings will get into a sophmore slump. It’s going to be really interesting in the playoffs if my predictions are right, my predictions being bulls at 4th seed and bucks at 5th. Jennings vs. Rose, Noah vs. Bogut

  • Red

    Cantrell you shouldn’t comment nba if u put BJ in top 5 pg in 2 years over Rondo D Wll Chris Paul DRose steve nash and I can name others.

    Sit down

  • http://google c_cantrell

    u shouldnt comment my comments.. i dont care at all about what your predictions are for brandon jennings but im simply stating mine.. and red sorry to tell but yes jennings will for sure be the better than steve nash in 2 years.. if steve nash even lasts that long dude is almost 40.. get off this site u ignorant loser.. sit down

  • Red

    lol obviously you care a little if your responding douchebag :)

    Jennings sucks so bad Nash will stay better then him, he’ll never hit All-star status if he does it’ll be a wild card chance.

  • http://google c_cantrell

    jennings will be an all-star even if it takes him as long as it took melo.. he will get his.. your ignorance is as a stench in my nostrils man.. you unintelligence is almost offending.. find a new hobby man.. analyzing basketball jus isnt working for u

  • red

    you unintelligence??!! LMFAO its YOUR non intelligence sit down kid your too hyped.

  • http://google c_cantrell
