Brandon Jennings said the Pistons could become Lob City under his direction. Of course, the first step of a lob is a pass, and Jennings has a reputation for being a reluctant passer.
Believe it or not, Larry Sanders took exception.
Andrew Gruman of FOXSportsWisconsin.com (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball):
Count me among the skeptics that Jennings will pass significantly more often this season. It’s hard to relinquish being a top scoring option for a lesser role, even when players have the best intentions.
But if Jennings is going to pass more, Drummond, Smith and Monroe are better targets than Sanders. Sanders is a good player, mostly because his defense. Offensively, he’s still pretty unpolished. Drummond and Smith are athletic finishers, and Monroe has quality post moves.
Pistons-Bucks games will be interesting this season. I’m sure Jennings wants to take it to his former team, but because of Sanders’ quip, maybe Jennings will try to show up the Bucks by passing extra.
