In 2009, the Knicks made the mistake of drafting Jordan Hill over Brandon Jennings, who dominated Rucker Park at the Elite 24 games and surely would have been a fan favorite in New York. It was a mistake that Jennings is still upset about.

Then this past summer, the Knicks redeemed themselves by signing the point guard at a bargain price of $5 million. His arrival isn’t generating as much noise as Derrick Rose (and his optimistic comments) but I’m expecting him to play just as important of a role for the Knicks, especially since he’s as motivated as he’s ever been.

In the meantime, let’s celebrate Jenning’s arrival and birthday today with some of his best past plays and performances.
