OK so the NBA lockout might have been nauseating for all NBA fans but there is no doubting it did give us some great highlights, courtesy of Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks.
From coast to coast, Jennings made any summer exhibition game he took part in his personal stage to basically humiliate anyone courageous enough to attempt to defend him.Indeed, Jennings was a one-man-show but let's remember the countless victims who are now immortalized in videos of his on-the-court rampage during the summer.The fellas over at Hoopmixtape.com put together some of Jennings' best highlights from the summer. From dribbling backwards to bouncing the ball off a defender's forehead and much more, Jennings sure did make the lockout bearable when he took to the court.

ST. FRANCIS Healthy and rested, Jon Brockman is ready to get back to work.
Brockman has been a regular fixture at the Cousins Center since NBA training facilities were opened to players in the wake of a 149-day lockout. The extended offseason gave the 6-foot-7 forward plenty of time to recover from surgery to remove a bone spur from his left ankle.

Beno Udrih, Jon Brockman and 2010 second-round pick Darington Hobson worked out Monday at the Bucks practice facility while the countdown continued to the opening of training camp. More players will be showing up at the Cousins Center in the next few days as Bucks players return from across the country and overseas.
It's still too early to tell, but Bucks forward Jon Brockman says something feels different about the team as it prepares to open training camp Friday.
The Milwaukee Bucks released their shortened 66-game schedule for the 2011-'12 season, and their fans definitely received some good news.
