Brandon Jennings began his career with a bang, but quickly faded into obscurity as he’s averaged single-digit points for two straight seasons. He’s now gone even lower, heading to play in China where he’ll make less (1-year, $1.5 million) than the NBA minimum salary.
The point guard, who played for the Knicks and Wizards last season, caught some headlines earlier this year when he decided to bash Paul Pierce. The veteran announced his retirement before the season and during his final game Jennings tweeted, 1 ring don’t mean you get a farewell tour.
Harden finished with 27 points, 12 rebounds, six assists and two steals, while Paul finished with 13 points, 10 assists and this highlight 3-pointer.
It was a capacity crowd in the Los Angeles gym as NBA players DeMar DeRozan, Nick Young and Julius Randle played earlier in the day.
There were hundreds of people outside waiting, coming and going because they couldn’t get in, Drew League commissioner Chaniel Smiley told ESPN.com. Today’s crowd had to be on my top-two list.
Paul is now eligible to play with LAUNFD in the Drew League playoffs. The team also features Rockets guard Bobby Brown, former NBA player Pooh Jeter and the top high school player in the class of 2018, Marvin Bagley III.
And there’s the system. Anthony played in Mike D’Antoni’s offense before, of course, for parts of two seasons in 2011 and 2012 with the Knicks, and his unwillingness to embrace the ball-sharing flow of D’Antoni-ball was a major factor in D’Antoni’s ultimate ouster from New York.
