Brandon Jennings Doesn’t Allow Rookie Willy Hernangomez To Help Opposing Player Up

Knicks rookie Guillermo Gustavo “Willy” Hernangomez Geuer (yes, that’s his full name) has only seen 22 minutes of action before Wednesday’s game against the Nets. In that game, the rookie racked up a career-high 14 points on 6 of 7 shooting, 6 boards and 2 blocks in just 15 minutes. He was so nice he even wanted to help the Nets Rondae Hollis-Jefferson up after a hard foul. Before he could, veteran Brandon Jennings grabbed his other hand and pulled him away like a mother would pull away a child who is about to take candy from a stranger.

The amusing moment reminded me of the time DeMarcus Cousins wouldn’t allow Isaiah Thomas shake hands with Chris Paul.
