Brandon Jennings Talks Family, Class of 2009

Posted by Marcus on October 6, 2008

So what does Brandon Jennings think of the class of 2009? Already, people are asking him who he thinks could go pro in Europe. It seems a little early to be asking a guy who just inked his first shoe contract a week or two ago this question, but his answer involves some of the better known players from the class of 2009:

Jennings said that three high school players in the class of 2009 — the California big men Renardo Sidney and Jordan Hamilton and Lance Stephenson of Brooklyn — were talented enough to play professionally in Europe. Stephenson’s father, Lance Sr., has expressed interest in making the move.

“I would ask them this: What do you want to get out of it?” Jennings said. “If they’re coming over here for the money, don’t do it. If they want to learn and get better, they should think about it. If you have a bad attitude, it’s not going to be good.”
