Brandon Jennings, Through a Mother’s Eyes

by August 06, 2009

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.”‘
