Prior to beginning his NBA career, Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings spent a year playing basketball in Italy. Jennings was on with Jim Rome yesterday and credited the time he spent in Italy for the quick adjustment to his life as a professional basketball player in the great city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Via Ball Don’t Lie:
Rome: “Can you see spending your whole career in Milwaukee?
Jennings: “Yeah, I can. I like it. It reminds me of Italy, laid-back town, small little market, and they’re real big on sports.”
I’ll just let you guys chew on that one over your lunch hour. Enjoy.
