Brandon Jennings

Watching this dude when he first came on the scene(HS,AAU,Mixtapes) everyone was amazed by him, he had it all, speed,quickness,hops,sick handles,passes,flash, flair, whatever you wanted Jennings had it.

But as I watched more and more of him, I noticed he doesn't have right hand, like he literally cant do anything going right, and it's starting to affect him, and it's holding him back from being the Elite player he can become.

Good article about him not having a right hand, it's going to hinder him if he doesn't get one quick.

Jennings never had it all.

Jennings never had it all. He always had a weak build and a low bball IQ, which still hinder him today. His lack of off hand should be no secret if you've watched him play over the years, but it's still interesting to see numbers backing that.
It's weird because even guys with weak off hands tend to favor pulling up or using a step back going to their weak side because it's much easier to square up. Jennings doesn't even do that well. Pulling up going to the shooting side leads to more off balance jumpers because you have to square up in the air. Maybe Jennings is just more comfortable shooting off-balance jumpers, but that also could explain why he's such an inefficient shooter.

I think there's a difference

I think there's a difference between low basketball IQ and poor shot selection. Jennings has the latter. But Scott Skiles played him from the get-go (which he almost never does with rookies) because he said that Jennings learns the game extremely quickly and reads things very quickly.

I think they're one in the same. Deciding when to shoot a shot is still a decision. Also, if he had a higher IQ he'd be able to set up his teammates and run an offense better.

being a streak and inconsistent shooter never helps either.... and he takes some questionable shots.... you would think that him and monta wouldnt work out.... but in the games ive seen them play they work out alright... maybe im wrong... i dont watch buck games every often

great player!

In my opinion he can't be guarded he gets anywhere he wants to go! Yes he still need to learn how to control his pace, but he and monta is a lethal backcourt! There in the 7th place and climbing the bucks are playing great basketball! If not a all-star this year definitely an all-star next season! Cuz Kyrie iz killing right now along with jrue Holliday!
