View Full Version : Brandon Jennings says Kobe shouldn't play in the Drew League.

If Kobe Bryant agrees to play in a proposed Drew League-Goodman League rematch, thousands of L.A. fans would flock to wherever the game takes place. And if he does, it appears Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings would go on his own "birther" campaign, like Donald Trump did with President Barack Obama.

"He wasn't born and raised in L.A," Jennings told ESPN the Magazine's Chris Palmer regarding Bryant, who attended Lower Merion near Philadelphia. "You gotta be from L.A. for Drew. Show me a birth certificate." [...]

Don't mistake Brandon's gripes about Bryant as a personal attack, though. Even though the Compton native would benefit from playing alongside Bryant, his gripes point more to his belief that the Drew League is compromising its roots in representing L.A. players. Jennings, after all, reiterated to Palmer the same thing he told me at the 2010 ESPY awards.

What the **** is this guy smoking? Kobe is a huge part of Los Angeles. He may not have been born in Los Angeles but he certainly has done a lot to represent this city and give the Angelinos multiple moments of joy. Brandon Jennings should shut his mouth because all I see is jealousy and disrespect towards Papa Colby.

This kid is full of himself when he is not even a Top 10 PG! He should just stick to Milwaukee.

Guy must be bipolar.

He also praised Kobe in the article, and just recently on NBA TV they showed him talking about Kobe. He called him an animal, the best in the league, and by far the best player and competitor he has faced since being in the league.

Maybe, just maybe he saw that Artest, Barnes, and Blake got deals after getting into it with Kobe and is trying to follow their path on his way o the forum blue and gold.

No players has scored more professional points in the city of Los Angeles than Kobe. Kobe gets a pass here.

Just saying here is a list of guys who have played in the Drew League straight from their site



David Greenwood
Raymond Lewis
Lester Conner
Byron Scott
John Williams
Greg Anthony
Freeman Williams
Micheal Cooper
Dennis Johnson
John Staggers
Paul Pierce
Allen Caveness
Tyrone Lue
Andre Miller
Kenny "Bad Santa" Brunner
Bobby Brown
Jason Hart
Ricky Davis
Trevor Ariza
Gabe Pruitt
Craig Smith
Nick Young
Dorell Wright
Marcus Williams
JaVale McGee
Brandon Jennings
Demar Derozen
James Harden
Cuttino Mobley
Baron Davis


I know the ones underlined aren't from LA. They like Kobe have ties with Lue being a Laker, Davis and Mobley being a Clip, and McGee's mom being a Spark. Anthony grew up and went to school in Vegas but trained in LA during the summers at the UCLA and Venice Beach courts by his own admission.

Jennings doesn't want to get his butt kicked by the Black Mamba. Kobe ain't fearing the deer.

Who cares, if they want to let Kobe play, and Kobe wants to play, what the hell is the problem. Jennings is a *******. "BJ" (lol) needs to focus on getting himself a jump shot, he's pathetic.

I am critical of Kobe's stretches of lack of efficiency, but how about "BJ", the guy has got to be the most inefficient guy in the league!!! lol

"BJ" is jealous! Maybe he wishes he was a Los Angeles Laker instead of a Milwaukee Buttwheat!

Kobe might not be born and raised in LA but we all can say that we watched him grow up as an NBA Player in LA, which to me is equivalent if not greater. 17 years Italy/Philly...16 years all LA.

Colby has been a Laker for almost as long as Jennings is alive. Dude should seriously stfu.

Kobe has adopted LA as his home. His hometown has completely bashed him for years. Screw Jennings.
