Going to college was something that I didn't want to do.
— Brandon Jennings
I started playing basketball when I was about three years old. After that, everything else just came naturally. I had older cousins that used to let me hang with them, so I got my toughness from them.
During the lockout year, my focus was the basics, sharpening my moves, my fundamentals.
I've never really been told my game reflects like I'm from Los Angeles. I'm always told that I have more of an East Coast type game.
As long as you put me out on the court, I was gonna play hard.
When I was about 12 years old, I knew I had to take the game more seriously if I wanted to be able to provide for my family.
Coach Skiles is tough. He's been my only coach in the NBA, so I'm used to it. His rules are a little different at times. At the end of the day, he just wants you to play hard defense, and you can't fault him for that.
