Brandon Jennings’ infamous interview with with rapper Joe Budden is the subject of much fallout today, thanks, in large part, to Jennings’ liberal use of a certain word that begins with the letter “n.” To prove Jennings uses equal opportunity slang, he refers to his coach Scott Skiles and the New York Knicks basketball team with the same noun. Uncomfortable slang aside, for those of you keeping score of Jennings’ ability to prognosticate, you now have a result to tally.
Today is obviously NBA day around IF–blame the fact nothing else was on last night, save Pittsburgh’s bounce-back against Syracuse–and with that, let’s get into Greg Oden’s big night last night. Against the Milwaukee Bucks, Oden had a career best 24 points, 15 rebounds, 2 blocked shots and 2 steals. Obviously, this the type of performance that made Portland fans drool when they won the NBA Draft lottery last year.
