Brandon Jennings First Scrimmage In Italy Video

One of the stories I’m most interesting in following this fall and winter will not be taking place on the NFL field, the NBA court, or a college campus. It’s the ever-intriguing Brandon Jennings and his quest to play basketball professionally in Italy.

I love college hoops and would have enjoyed his success at the University of Arizona, but one most also realize that college is not for everyone. His bold decision, one that may very well teach him more than he could ever care to learn in Tucson, is something that should be applauded.

Pete Thamel had a great piece on Jennings in the Sunday New York Times I suggest you read.

Thanks to Dime Magazine, we’ve now got some video footage of Jennings’ first scrimmage for Lottomatica Virtus Roma (must be one hell of jersey).

Check out the move at :50. Wow.

  1. yo he is so smart to go to italy to play basketball because while he is playing pro over there. Nba teams are still looking at him. So if he gets into the draft, nba teams already know what it is. He is going to be a very prospects player and everbody is going to try to get a hand on him.

  2. He looks Very good and I’m impressed with his game. He is an assist monster who still manages to get buckets! We’ll see him in the 1st round next year.

  3. Good move, and Italy is a wonderful country…Get out and explore with your basketball game. Bravisimo!!!

  4. keep balling

  5. now I’ll be in touch..
