Brandon Jennings explains why he passed up an open lay up for a jump shot

During Pistons vs. Mavericks, point guard Brandon Jennings passes up a lay-up to dribble back out and shoot a jumper… Jennings is shooting 36% from the field this season mind you. After the game, BJ took to Twitter to explain what happened: I didn't think I was open. Thought Monta was behind me. O! My bad! It happens — BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) December 18, 2014

Brandon Jennings passed up WIDE OPEN lay-up (VIDEO)

Vine Brandon Jennings is a shoot first, shoot second, fake pass shoot third type point guard.  You don’t ever have to him to put it up.  And really, he doesn’t even do it well (37% as of Wednesday). For some unknown reason (he wrongly sensed a defender in the lane), Jennings passed up a wide open lay-up Wednesday against the Mavericks. He made a nice backdoor cut to get open...

Brandon Jennings Would Rather Take a Jumper Than a Layup

On Monday, Howard Beck of Bleacher Report noted that Detroit Pistons knuckleheads Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith are both available for trade: New Pistons president Stan Van Gundy needs to trade one or both of these guys if he wants to preserve the sanity of new Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy. Both are firmly on the block, per rival executives. Personally, I believe Josh Smith can...

Brandon Jennings Declines Wide Open Layup for Bricked Jumper (Video)

This play pretty much sums up the Pistons and Jennings career clueless clip. Brandon Jennings is a career 38% shooter from the field, and is shooting a career low 36% from the field this season. That statistic didn’t stop Jennings from passing up an easy dunk or left-handed lay-up, to throw up this ugly-looking off balanced brick. The Mavs bench was even in awe of Jennings...

After watching many games over the years, I’ve personally thought that I’ve seen it all. That was until Detroit Pistons Brandon Jennings did something strange during tonight’s Mavericks-Pistons game.

Pistons look to end home slide Wednesday

The Dallas Mavericks opened a back-to-back set against two of the NBA's worst teams by jumping out to an early lead and spreading their minutes around in an easy win. The same could happen in Detroit, where the Mavericks face the Pistons on Wednesday night before returning home to face the defending NBA champions Saturday.

Motion, Movement and Identity

Last Summer, during the Sloan MIT conference in Boston, someone made the mistake of informing Stan Van Gundy that Paul George led the league in distance traveled. His response was this: “of what possible use is this information?” It was classic Van Gundy, equal parts serious and sarcastic. Van Gundy was all at once dismissing the statistic as valid in and of itself and asking...

Report: Pistons Could Trade Greg Monroe, Others

At 5-19 on the season, it’s rather evident that the current group of Detroit Pistons players simply aren’t getting it done. Short of a complete turnaround, which seems unlikely, this could lead to wholesale changes on the roster. And according to numerous reports, the team could soon go into full “firesale mode.” The Sporting News is indicating that Detroit wants a first...

Pistons asking for a first round pick for Greg Monroe

The Detroit Pistons are nothing short of a complete disaster, and arguably no one feels that more than PF/C, Greg Monroe. After failing to come to terms on an extension with the Pistons, Monroe decided to go the unconventional route, and signed his qualifying offer this season for just 5.5 million dollars.
