We had a lot of things to say when the Bucks selected Brandon Jennings with the tenth pick of this year's NBA Draft. Most of it was negative; some of it was downright mean-spirited. (I don't wanna point fingers, but one of you wrote: "Brandon Jennings? Really? The kid who's so dumb that he went to play ball in Italy for a year?" You know who you are ...)
ANYWAY, as is so often the case (except when it comes to questioning the competence of Mike McCarthy), it appears we may have misjudged this one. BraJen was off to a nice-but-not-overly-impressive start, and FPMKE was nice enough to post some camera phone shots of Jennings in Chicago, but, until Saturday, Jennings hadn't done anything that made you look up and say: "Whoa."
Then the young man dropped a double nickel on the Warriors this past weekend, including putting up twenty-nine in the third quarter. Since there's really no other way to put this, I'll just say: HOLY LIVING FUCK. Where the hell did that come from?
At the risk of jinxing his budding stardom, I'm willing to say: I'm mildly intrigued by this guy. I might even be willing to pay American cash money to take in a game at some point in the next month. Anybody else?
