Brandon Jennings Says Bucks Will Beat Heat in Six Games


by Marcel Mutoni @ marcel_mutoni

The first round Playoff matchup between the defending champion Miami Heat and the upstart Milwaukee Bucks is expected to be a laugher. LeBron James certainly seems to think the Bucks have no shot, and he’s more than likely correct.

Only one person seems to believe in Milwaukee being able to not only give Miami a good fight, but perhaps even win. That person is Brandon Jennings.

The Bucks point guard, currently nursing a right foot injury, told a room full of people last night that Milwaukee will win the series in six games.

Per the Journal Sentinel:

Milwaukee guard Brandon Jennings attended the Wisconsin Sports Awards Thursday night at the Harley-Davidson museum to accept an award for his work in community outreach programs. He was only asked three questions, but he sure made the most of them. He also made a very bold prediction: “I’m real confident. I’m sure everybody is writing us off but but I see us winning the series in six.”

Maybe after noticing that everyone in the room had their eyebrows raised, Jennings smiled. “There’s no pressure on us!”

The Milwaukee Bucks won 38 games this season (compared to Miami’s 66 victories), and the vibe in their locker room is one of a team that has nothing to lose.

As for Brandon Jennings and his wild prediction — he backtracked a bit, tweeting that he was just having fun with the whole thing. The real fun starts Sunday night, in Miami.

    Sweep. Both Monta and Brandon will be locked down by LeBron and Wade when/if necessary.

  • LLC#12

    This series is the one most likely to end in a sweep.

  • Mt. Zion

    Milwaukee’s backcourt is another example of players who were supposed to be all-world in high school and now…yawnnnnnnn. Go to school kids, please, for the sake of the professional game if nothing else. This is becoming unbearable to watch.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Yeah, because Tyler Hansbrough and Adam Morrison are such shining examples of four-year graduates elevating the professional game. They’re way better than that starting NBA point guard who averages 17 ppg and once scored 55 points, and that other guy who once averaged 26 ppg for a whole season. Unbearable!

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    They’re both good players. I enjoy watching them play. Not everyone can be LeBron, Kobe, T-Mac and KG. And it took Kobe, T-Mac and Jermaine O’Neal a few seasons before they became who great players. What Jennings did was actually pretty impressive deciding not to go to Arizona but playing overseas as a kid. Pretty huge responsibility to take. He’s done well for himself. And Monta came into the league as an undersized two guard and has also done well for himself as a scorer and playmaker. I can’t think of another high school guard after him who came into the league and did as well as he’s done. Many high school superstar players have come into the league and done well. Just because they’re not NBA superstars doesn’t mean they should have gone to school. They both made good decisions.

  • pposse

    yup he took pressure off his teammates and put the pressure (if there is any as they are playing the Heat) squarely on himself; thats the mark of a guy who is willing to step up and be a good leader.

    He is way higher than I thought. A team that won 38 games all season has no business in any post season game. NBA needs to change the seeding. Should just be the top 4 or six teams, not 8. I mean, all sports needs to stop so many rounds of playoffs. They do it for money, nothing more. Should always just be the few teams with top records. That is how you determine a true champion, not a 38-game winning team that suddenly wins a couple games in post-season.

    “They do it for money, nothing more.”

    You are spitting into the wind.

    The NBA is an entertainment company. Their entertainment product is basketball games. Their primary goal is to make money.

    Besides that, that 38 win team will likely NOT win the championship. So the superior team will win as you desire. Plus, if the 38 win team does win, all that means is that they were the superior team. If the “top teams” can not dispatch the easy pickings in the first round or they become to fatigued from those early round then all that means is that they have poor depth and/or conditioning.

    .

    please, for the sake of the professional game if nothing else. This is becoming unbearable to watch. (right, because it’s much better to watch the Bobcats, who have a starting back court of Kemba Walker and Gerald Henderson, who both attended college for 3 years.)

    Nothing worse than not knowing, and not knowing that you don’t know. Above average. Ok, obviously we are from 2 different decades and grew up watching 2 entirely different forms of NBA/college basketball. However, above average NBA players who share the same backcourt (and 95% of the team’s offense) in a watered-down league that is full off BFF’s and doesn’t play defense, don’t “lead their team” to a BELOW AVERAGE overall record. I realize you may have their posters on your wall or want to get a “young money” tattoo when you turn 17, but that doesn’t mean that those 2 guys are above average NBA players. Not even close.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    “in a watered-down league that is full off BFF’s and doesn’t play defense”
    .
    your ignorance is showing.
    .
    Defense has never been better, it has never been more sophisticated. It’s the same reason the league has created rules to make offense easier.
    .
    And they are above average NBA players. The key being average. We are talking about the playoffs. They are above average, but in no way elite.
    .
    And average nba player doesn’t have anything to do with players in their 50s who aren’t in the NBA anymore. they are above average in today’s NBA. like it or not.
    .
    also, if you just stop pining for the past, things will get easier for you. I’m not a 17 year old, I’m just not stupid enough to wish things were the way they used to be so much that i have to complain about how things are today. Life/sports/culture/society change. You should try and do it too.

    Or just keep being that grumpy old guy who spouts of ignorant bullsh*t and makes stupid assumptions. That’ll really keep serving you so well.

  • blackthought

    when he`ll be escapin` the ganjaclouds – he`ll be just in time 2 see lebron shittin` all over his head…

  • pposse

    maybe the players just on average suck nowadays offensively so defense is actually easier and not “better” than its ever been before.

    Out of all the players that came in the league in the past 8 yrs who is even near a list of all time great defenders?

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    TEAM defense is what matters. and there is not one TEAM defense in NBA history that holds a candle to the top 5 teams now.
    .
    And offensively? For the sake of comparison,
    - the offensive rating of the best team in 1989 (Los Angeles Lakers) was 113.8,
    -Oklahoma City best offense in NBA today offensive rating is 112.6.
    - 1989 Lakers played at a pace of 100.5
    - 2013 Thunder play at a pace of 93.3
    —– the best offense today is better than the best offense in 1989.
    .
    The best defense in 1989 (and considered best defense “ever” by many)
    - 1989 Detroit Pistons, Defensive Rating of 104.7
    - 2013 Indiana Pacers, Defensive Rating of 99.8
    Detroit played at a pace of 95.5, Indiana plays at a pace of 90.2
    .
    Would you look at that, the best offense today is better than the best offense in 1989….all while the best defense today is also better than the best defense in 1989.
    .
    Basketball has evolved. Offenses, and Defenses are better than ever. The difference is, the pace of games has slowed. Dramatically. Which is a direct result of the increased sophistication in the sport.
    .
    If you don’t think the basketball being played today is better than the basketball being played 20+ years ago, then you are just flat out ignorant. Like medicine, education, science, and anything in our society, with more time comes an advanced use.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    You do realize that you haven’t really responded to anything anyone has said to you with any substance, right? Forget Brandon and Monta…you’re the one who needs to go to school.

  • pposse

    you said earlier the rules changed, so why compare two different eras with d and o ratings?..the same game was being played but under different rules. If your trying to tell me that any of these teams nowadays even had a chance against the 90s bulls, 80 lakers or celtics or pistons then im tellin you your crazy and ignorant.

    My theory is the rules changed cause there was some really garbage ball players in the late 90′s and early millenium. the rules changed, the game changed as a result and now more recently there has been an influx of talent but the players, gm’s, as well as you and most of the public are cool with them playing under these new rules which call for less physicality; players getting inflated stats cause like Mt. Zion said these guys are interested in being BFF’s moreso than competing and winning

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i’m not telling you a theory as to why the rules changed. I’m telling you why they changed. it’s not a guess, it’s why it happened.

    .

    The rules changed because defense’s were becoming so sophisticated that it was slowing the game’s down dramatically. and fans were losing interest in NBA games that featured final scores in the high 80s or 90s.

    .

    Then advanced statistics were introduced sometime around 2004. And offenses started catching back up.

    .

    Now we are at the point where both, offense and defense are better than they have ever been.

    .

    Offenses are getting more out of their possessions then they did in previous eras (mainly attributed to advanced stats illuminating the huge benefit of taking 3 point shots and avoiding mid range shots)

    .

    While defense’s are more paramount to winning then ever before. The game is still slower than the league wants, and defenses still have the ability to make some playoff matchups absolutely dreadful.

    .

    For example, the best defense not in the playoffs is the Wizards, who for the second half of the season were the 5th best team in their conference, after them the best defense not in the playoffs is the freaking Minnesota Timberwolves. Who rank 14th. And the WORST DEFENSE in the playoffs is the Lakers who rank 20th.

    .

    Of the top 15 defensive teams in the NBA, 13 are in the playoffs.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    Chris Paul has a lot of friends in the league, guys used to stay at his place when he was in New Orleans…have you seen him not compete or try to win in any game? That idea of guys being too friendly is overblown and flat out wrong. These guys grew up in a different era. They’ve known each other since high school. LeBron and Kendrick Perkins played on the same McDonald’s All-American team, have you seen him smile at anyone at all on the floor much less LeBron during those Cavs/Celtics and Heat/Thunder games in the regular season and playoffs? KD and LeBron went at it during the Finals last season and they go at it in every regular season game they play. It’s fun to watch. In fact, I’d say that friends may actually compete against each other harder than guys who don’t like each other. Jordan and Barkley were/are great friends. Did they not compete against each other? Magic and Larry. Magic and Isiah. It’s just like brothers in the backyard. Even Jordan talked about how hard he played and worked to beat his brother. That’s an idea that some people are sensitive over but they have no real basis for their argument. The top 10 players in the league all respect each other, all played with each other at some point, some are close friends. It hasn’t made the game any worse. Just different. Different doesn’t equal worse. If you want 80s and 90s gameplay, watch highlights on YouTube or buy some DVDs. The game changes.

  • pposse

    Magic and Larry legitamately hated each other until a mutual respect was formed. Yeah Jordan and Barkley were cool but MJ always referred to barkely as his “little brother” big difference from “brother”. A guy like Perkins is a rarity nowadays.

    Yeah i do think there is a little bit of competive edge that a fan gets deprived of (from seeing) bc of how close some of these guys are. You couldn’t really prove it one way or the other cause there isn’t any hatred or ‘beef’ between the all stars. The only thing remotely close to hatred/rivalry is D Rose vs Lebron and thats just based off of a glare Rose gave the east all stars when they were dancing. That and the fact that D Rose insisted on not recruiting other players to come to the Bulls in the offseason. I get it, this is def. the AAU generation all these guys known eachother since they were like 10 yrs old.

    IMO the best brand of bball was the form that was played in the 80′s 90s with the hand checking and illegal defense calls; its what translates on any level. thats the type of game people play everywhere.

  • pposse

    the only way a defense could have gotten more sophisticated is from the implementation of zone defense. Why was zone defense allowed to begin with? If no one was scoring in the NBA then why have zone defense put in place?

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    no, defense became more sophisticated because teams started recognizing strengths and weaknesses of offenses. The reason Zone defense was re-implemented was because the no-zone, illegal defense rule turned the NBA into a one on one sport. Michael Jordan, the best one on one player in NBA history had the luxury of playing in an era where one side of the court could be cleared out. It took the strategy out of basketball, and slowed the game down even more.

    .

    Under the old illegal defense rule, even double teaming was a tricky proposition. Because defensive player’s couldn’t rotate to make up for the trap, they had to stay at home. Or else they were committing a defensive violation. Nobody wanted to watch one on one basketball that ended in a final score of 94-92. Just look at the 1994 nba finals – http://www.basketball-reference.com/playoffs/NBA_1994_finals.html

    .

    Zone defense was put back in so that the game would open up. The idea that Zone’s slow the game down is outrageous. if anything the game speeds up when teams are playing a zone because it opens up more open looks, and cuts away much in terms of transition defense. The zone at it’s roots forces teams to shoot more long jumpers, but as i told you earlier, the value of a 3pt shot is much higher than traditionally thought of. Forcing a team to shoot more 3′s creates more long rebounds and more points. The game speeds up.

    .

    Again, if you want to see how defense’s have, and are still becoming more and more sophisticated, just take a look at the Spurs this season. Read this, http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2013/03/22/these-spurs-arent-the-same/

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    A little brother is still…a brother, right? How is that different? That makes absolutely no sense. I don’t remember D-Rose giving a glare to his All-Star teammates. Also something that was overblown. I watched. He looked at them and decided not to dance. All he did was be himself while the other guys were themselves. A glare implies that he had an issue with it, which he didn’t. It just wasn’t him. Also, him not begging guys to come play with him isn’t an indication of anything except that he’s not that close with many NBA players. Notice that the guys who joined together in that summer were pretty close friends. And to him, everyone knows what Chicago is like so if guys wanted to go there, they would have. That’s how he saw it. The only thing that makes the Bulls/Heat a rivalry is the Heat beat Chicago in the Conf Finals two seasons ago so the only team standing in the Bulls way when they’re healthy is Miami. They know it and Miami knows it. It’s not hatred. It’s tough competition between the two best teams in the East when their best players are playing. Fans can either appreciate the game that they’re watching or stop watching.

  • pposse

    its different when you call someone a little brother. Idk how else to explain it to you! when you rub someone’s head, thats what you do to your lil bro, thats why cp was heated when pau pau did that to him.

    the still photo makes it look like d rose was glaring at them; whether he was or not is whatever, but i have read articles citing that photo and trying to make some feud between bron and rose that probably doesnt exist. It would add to the game if they were legit beefing imo, it would add to the intensity.

    Or fans such as myself can watch and put suggestions out there on how the game can be better.

  • pposse

    the game speeding up is not a good thing, too many opportunities for injuries. People complained cause there was no superstar guards to watch. But now there is, so the rules should revert back.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    No, CP3 was mad because Pau doesn’t know him like that to be putting his hand on his head. His teammates do it to him and it’s not a problem because they know each other. It had nothing to do with the “little brother” idea you’ve put forth.

    The point is that Rose doesn’t dislike LeBron or the Heat regardless of what rumors or what beef people are trying to start and regardless of what the photo looks like. There’s a difference between what something looks like and what it actually is.

    None of your suggestions will be heard or cared about. No one in the league office cares. It’s about making money. The league will be making money unless people stop watching. People won’t stop watching. The players are too talented and skilled. It’s too entertaining to watch. So suggestions don’t mean anything.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    injuries are irrelevant. fans in seats is all that matters. come on, this is a business. Not a charity for good athletes to be healthy.

  • pposse

    i know, but if superstars keep going down then the business of bball will suffer.

    Already there has not been an impactful big man in how many years? I wonder what type of player Hakeem would be in this day and age. Greg Oden was supposed to be the next Shaq. We already seeing one of the better Centers in Noah stuck with a debilitating injury. Plantar is no joke my fear (as a concerned fan) is that its gonna affect the rest of his career. All of this can theoretically change with rule changes, and the star power is so big right now that this can be implemented.

  • pposse

    the people won’t be watching if these guys keep getting career threatening injuries. Acting like its not happening all the time? What happened to Greg Oden, he was supposed to be the next big thing. Noah, foot is crippling him. D Rose has taken a whole season off. I don’t see whats entertaining about that. In all likelihood unless Kobe is wolverine, he will be out for some time. I could care less if u or anyone else wants to hear my suggestions, im goin to make them bc i care about the best interest of the business and the game; if you don’t want to hear them then don’t engage me in conversation in the first place.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    Greg Oden was simply injury prone. It started in high school, not when he got to the NBA. D-Rose’s injury was a freak injury on a move that he’s done thousands of times. Neither had anything to do with the style of play of the NBA. The Bulls aren’t even a running team unless D-Rose is doing the running. Kobe’s injury was also a freak accident.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Since Michael Jordan…..2 teams have won a title without a top 5 big. What are you talking about.

  • http://twitter.com/apowellAdvocate Allen Powell II

    You should check the numbers. The success rate of players who leave early is much higher than those who stay longer. People theorize that’s because players who leave early are obviously more talented than their brethren who stay in school. People have actually studied this, you should use the Google Machine.

  • http://twitter.com/apowellAdvocate Allen Powell II

    That’s an interesting standard. You cut out LeBron on purpose and tied it to players who haven’t been int he League a decade and tried to make us make a determination about where they are compared to all-time greats. That’s a slick trick to win an argument.

    Like I said, if Brandon hits over 50% of his 3pointers and Monta averages 15 pts in the paint and if the Bucks win in the Rebounding Stats. The Bucks win. Go BUCKS!!

    im specifically talking about 2005- present. I consider tim duncan, kg, kobe the last of the mohicans.

    So are you telling me that Andrew Bynum, and even Pau Gasol really stand a chance against the bigs from the 90′s and 80s?? Hell look at Bynum anyways, how long lived was his career?? If your cool with not ever seeing a legit big man dominate or have a lasting impact on the game ever again then yeah the league is entertaining. What about Yao? I don’t see this trend changing either unless you do slow the game down.

  • pposse

    MJ kept the league ticking. And i know your gonna say Lebron is keeping the league ticking now, but even with the injuries to the players you mentioned, MJ still had to go thru a gang of talented players/ teams to get and ultimately win the finals. Look at Miamis team this year, they got to go thru the bucks, bulls/net, nyk celt/pacers to get to the finals. How many HOF worthy player Lebron has to go up against, and how many of them are near their prime? KG, Carmello? and its only gonna be one of those guys (left d rose out since he aint playing and injured which is my pt, and d will cause he aint HOF worthy or on pace to be yet imo).

  • pposse

    Greg Oden may have been the first big man that was raised to play ball post MJ era. You guys do realize that guys like Tim Duncan, Hakeem Olajuwon only started to hoop when they got to hs right? big men in general don’t have long lasting careers. you keep saying all of these injuries are freak accidents, while i think they are a direct result from the style of play that is being promoted in the league right now.

  • pposse

    Lebron is the exception. Regardless of what type of d is played against him i think he would succeed. I truly do believe if he continues to win championships he will be the second best all time. Keep in mind this is only one guy. And really how great will his impact to the game be if he in fact he is playing against watered down talent?

    I Can’t even say KD is a lock for good offense against a guy like Pippen or any even a Dennis Rodman or a Fat Lever with hand checking rules (mainly cause of his lack of strength). We will never know for sure.

    We also won’t know for sure how the players of yesteryear would fair against zones and the new defensive rules. Good players will attack the seams of zones exposing themselves to injuries and probably succeeding in drawing fouls. What type of player would a Clyde Drexler be?! we would never know.

    Very arrogant Jennings guarantee 0-4 with the heat series and what’s worse, scored below average 10 pts or less

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    sorry to say it, but that was too harsh of a comment, nbk. no need to make it THAT personal. It’s just his opinion that the league is watered down… We don’t need to belittle him for his age or anything else like that–I respect that he grew up watching ball in another era. Let’s not take it there.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    actually he was insulting you too quite a bit lol. Both unnecessary. Of course I agree with your points though, bro.

  • Brandan E

    if brandon jennings can come thru wit this prediction he can run for mayor in milwaukee! cmon bucks beat the heat for the sake of the whole NBA!!

    He’ll have to average 55 and Monta has to go circus to pull this off. But hey, on a serious note, those Milwaukee bigs are no pushover defensively.

    “Because defensive player’s couldn’t rotate to make up for the trap, they had to stay at home.” not quite accurate, rotations were allowed, it eliminated the “free safety” type of defense thus making it easier for the offense to operate.

    The guys you mentioned don’t play for teams that play that way. The Blazers weren’t a run and gun team when Oden was on it. The Bulls don’t play that way either. Neither do the Lakers.

  • DeeDre

    What kills me is if you had that mentality of winning 4 out of 6 games all season your sorry team wouldn’t be under .500 right now

  • Slick Ric

    Gotta love the confidence though…lol

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    how do you post the actual gif in the comment and not just the link???

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    nvm it does it automatically lol.

    2010, 2011…

    … then, of course, he’s allowed to shift his pivot in a three-foot radius, at will.

    Still the best, obviously, but don’t act like Jennings’ comments are going to make the Bucks lose worse than was inevitable already.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    Typical Laker fan. Good thing you mentioned 2010 because that’s the last time the Lakers won something.

    I know Slam is bad about reposting parts of articles while leaving out other key parts that provide context. So, did Brandon also say he expects that the Miami Heat will not actually show up any of those 6 games, and the Bucks will play 5-0 basketball? Even under those circumstances it would still probably go 7 games.

    Well we all know how that turned out. The Bucks didn’t stand a chance. Now they are the worst in the league, but at least they have some rising talent and a top pick headed there way. I can see them being competitive again in a couple of years. http://www.greenview.com/index.php
