Definitely.

Jennings had red flags in every scout report concerning his attitude coming out of highschool. While it remains to be seen if those flags were misplaced, I agree that the euro experience probably worked the best for him and his attitude.

I kept reading occasionally about his time in Europe, and it was definitely a tough experience for him. That probably will help him in the long run.

Read the guy's blog. Start from when he gets to Rome and go forward in time. You can actually see how he gets humbled by playing there. I don't know if he mentions it, but dude had a million dollar contract and gave $50,000 to victims of an earthquake in Italy.

http://blog.underarmour.com/wheninrome/page/6/

Also, at one point, he lists his 5 favourite PGs of all time. Let's give him a pass on Jerry West who wasn't really a PG, but doesn't the list strike you as odd if he was a "me-first" kind of player?

1. Magic Johnson
2. Jason Kidd
3. John Stockton
4. Steve Nash
5. Jerry West

Only on ISH where you will see this type of idiocy.

I specifically said that the car thing isn't relevant to his attitude, I was just saying that I don't know where people get the idea that he has a bad attitude.

Apparently he's learned from Walker's mistakes. Good for the rook.

Thats cool. I rented a Ford Edge for a week and loved it, really nice car all around. Another one around the same price but with a little better looks and a beefier engine is the Saturn Vue. Can probably get those cheap now too. Would take either one over an Escalade or Range Rover.

What the hell are you on about?

He's talking about how playing in Europe would have helped Jennings mature more as a person, not get him more NBA ready.

Jennings has a great attitude. Last night when I got to the game, he was the only player on either team out there shooting. He hired himself a PR coach to do better interviews, and he got his condo a mile away from the Bucks practice facility. Even in that leaked video, he was caught defending Skiles and the city of Milwaukee.

I can't wait to watch Jennings this season.

I'm more excited about his development than our itself. Hopefully he can continue to get players involved and help this team improve. If Jennings can stay consistent and Redd/Bogut start getting hot, they will start winning games.

Pffft, should have bought a Fit or an Accent, then I'd be impressed by his frugality.
