    Brandon Jennings not happy as it appears Augustin will replace him as starter

    Brandon Jennings in entering his sixth NBA season, and has started in 370 of his 373 regular season appearances.

    His position in the opening tip lineup, however, which was once completely solidified, may now be on shaky ground due to having a new head coach in place, a capable guard playing behind him, and a couple of personally shaky performances.

    From Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:

    Van Gundy has turned to backup point guard D.J. Augustin for a majority of minutes in the first two games of the 0-2 start.

    And itís obvious that Van Gundyís decision-making process is bothering Jennings.

    When told that Van Gundy said that Augustin has been the better point guard the first two games, Jennings quietly said: ďThen he should start and Iíll be the backup, if thatís the case.Ē

    And with that Jennings added: ďThatís all Iíve got.Ē

    He then walked away from reporters.
    Itís only been two games, but Augustin has outplayed Jennings when heís gotten the chance. Jennings is averaging just four points, three rebounds and four assists in 17.5 minutes per contest, while Augustin is at 17.5, 4.5 and 4.5 in 30.5 minutes off the bench.

    Jennings hasn't learned anything since being drafted. Literally zero improvement from day one in the league.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see him out of the rotation and waived soon, then subsequently out of the NBA.

    This was said before yesterday's game, he started yesterday and played well so maybe when he feels the pressure he can step up. Augustine has out played him but none of the less, neither one has done well shooting lately

    He has a history of taking awful shots. If he's upset about the prospect of not starting, he should stop playing hero ball.
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    but he scored 55 points in a game as a rookie... that counts for something doesn't it?

    I just don't get why he cant shoot over 40 percent for a season
    If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all.
    Peace
    Love
    Happiness

    I can't believe the Pistons have both him and Josh Smith.

    Worst case scenario really.

    They could have Rudy Gay too.

    Jennings just had a great game and DJ didn't play that many minutes.

    SVG is going to make whoever wins those minutes really earn it.

    18 points on 14 shots in a losing effort is a great game?
