Brandon Jennings is not very nice in streetball play

Brandon Jennings seems to be coming into his own this summer. He’s publicly committed to improving his game, has raised his profile in a sponsorship “internship” with Under Armour, and has been playing steadily in various summer leagues. Last few days he’s been patrolling Dyckman League. And one unlucky defender paid the price for keeping his head focused on Jennings’ mid-section (which actually isn’t a bad approach, but whatever):

Now, that’s just not nice, Brandon.

Jennings seems to be coming into his own during the lockout. He’s showing more aggressiveness and confidence in improving. Jennings really believes he can be an elite player in this league. This silly streetball move isn’t proof of that, but it does show you that the kid may be humbly pursuing improvement, but he hasn’t lost his swagger.

Poor guy never saw it coming.

    ***MUST READ***

    I was 14 years old…

    The first time I saw this move was on one of the AND 1 mixtapes…and I did it in a game when we were up 20 points on a weaker team in the 4th quarter with 2 minutes to go…the ref blew the whistle and then called the came off, parents in the stands were disgusted by the shameless act of sportmanship and overall disrespect to the game of basketball itself…

    after the game the ref pulled me aside and explained why it was not right to do that and how “thats not basketball”, I didnt think anything of it until I got older…

    and I realized that has got to be the DUMBEST WHACKEST MOST DISRESPECTFUL thing you can do to the game of basketball, your own game , and to your opponent. Now that I’m older I feel like such a fool, I can remember the parents faces, like what is he doing? I feel like such a fool now looking back on it, I was 14 at the time and wanted to put on a show, etc…

    well Jennings is a lot older then 14, and has played overseas and in the NBA, he should know better then to pull this bushleague tactic. Jason Richardson did it to Carlos Boozer wants in the Rookie game…

    But this is like so un-thoro, un-hard, and b word type ish , your an NBA player, you need an ego boost so bad that you’d try that type of move on a random baller in pickup? make you feel tough dont it brandon…

    its not gonna feel so great when you get traded soon outta Milwaukee, overrated no right hand having skinny flat top no swag havin derrick rose d jumpin etc…

    sorry , that move by an NBA player is just bush. And to the kid I did it to when I was 14, I’m ashamed of myself and I apologize, in all fairness my coach who wanted to rub it in called for it from the bench, but still, that is 1 of my darkest moments as a basketball player.

    Please for anyone who sees that type of Bush , never allow it in the game and if someone does it , steal him in the mouth, its bush and should be found nowhere in the game of basketball.

      I agree with you. It takes a lot of courage to admit mistakes and apologize for them. Good for you. Don’t listen to these other keyboard warriors who will inevitably post nonsense in response to your post.
