Here’s a great short interview with Brandon Jennings about misconceptions, the growth of Under Armour in the basketball market, his all-time Oak Hill HS starting five and AAU basketball in response to Kobe’s negative comments.
If you weren’t aware of Jenning’s AAU career, he was a member of one of the best AAU teams ever – the SoCal All-Stars which also featured Kevin Love, Renardo Sidney and Taylor King. They won 47 games in a row in 06 and would often beat teams by over 47.
As for Oak Hill, where Jennings played his junior and senior year at, here’s his all-time starting 5: Himself, Ron Mercer, Jerry Stackhouse, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant.
Here’s a few other notable players from the academy: Rondo, Rod Strickland, Ty Lawson, Josh Smith, Ben McLemore, Stephen Jackson, Mark Blount, Steve Blake, Marcus Williams and Jeff McInnis.
