NBA Star in Milwaukee Bucks Brandon Jennings

Brandon Jennings was seen as a risk by some NBA General Managers, Scouts, and
NBA Coaches. There seem to be a debate on rather Brandon was mature enough to
play the point guard position in the NBA. Although, His stats in High School was

over-whelming and very impressive. Jennings last year in High School he averaged
32.7, 5.1 rebounds, and 7.4 assist. After all, he was named Naismith Prep Player
of the year in 2007-08. I don't know what some of the NBA scouts were reporting,
but this kid can flat out play with the best. Jennings can exploit any situation
on the basketball court. If I was looking for a leader, distributor, scorer and
winner, I would start with Jennings. He is young and with unbelievable composure
at 20 years old.

First, Jennings has a explosive first step to the hoop.
He can get to any spot on the basketball floor. That is very important for point
guards to learn while trying to guide a team. There should be no questions now
concerning his shooting abilities. For example, Jennings scored 55 points
against the Golden State Warriors on November 14th. He is the youngest player in
NBA history to score 50 points or more. At just 20 years old, I don't think
there should be anymore doubt about his maturity and willfulness to achieve
greatness. Some players have a Michael
Turner jersey
gift to score, and control the flow of the game.
Jennings has the ability to dominate and distribute the ball as needed. There
are just a few point guards in NBA history that can actually claim that
roll.

Secondly, Jennings became the first High School player to skip
College and go directly overseas to play professional basketball. Some people
will perceive this as a sign of avoiding College academics or the 19 year old
rule by the NBA. I feel a individual has the right to pursue their dreams, and
be able to provide for their family. Other athletes in other sports, such as
baseball, hockey, tennis, skate boarding etc...turn pro at a very young age.
Much younger than 19 years old. I feel the age restriction rule was implemented
to Sean
Weatherspoon jersey
help out the Universities and exploit the
revenue. Jennings is a prime example of Urban basketball, and how the NBA pick
their players. The commitment from Jennings to play pro and make money is
something that 100% of kids from tough neighborhoods would like to achieve.
Also, Jennings gained valuable lessons in life "Better know as experience" by
playing in Europe. Playing in Europe probably made Jennings grow up, and
prevented him from slipping thro!

ugh the cracks. We all know about the
great players that didn't make it.

In addition, Jennings is guiding the
Milwaukee Bucks into the playoffs. The team is currently sitting in 5th place
and continuing to improve. The rookie is showing the world that he is ready for
prime time. He is learning to make better decisions with the ball, which result
in better Asante
Samuel jersey
movement and touches for other teammates. Jennings
performances will probably set the stage for other players to skip college and
gain experience overseas. Life has a way of teaching someone the right way, and
the incorrect way. Obviously , Brandon choosing to go abroad and wait his turn
was worth the opportunity. If you factor in that life over in Europe is probably
no picnic. Brandon can probably appreciate the good life now that he is adjusted
to the falcons super bowl jersey.

Last but not least, Jennings is a talent with
multiply abilities. there has been a lot of hype surrounding him since High
School. The dream of playing in the NBA, and fulfilling goals is not a easy
task. Hopefully, Jennings understand that he is blessed ,and continue to show
the world that he is worthy of the 14th pick of the NBA draft. Jennings is
definitely a franchise changer and ready to lead the Milwaukee Bucks. The
Milwaukee Bucks are in the Eastern Conference, so seeing Brandon and LeBron
James go at it will be worth the ticket. The Milwaukee Bucks will be good for
years to come. It's good to see the Franchise bounce back, and have a player
worth watching.
