Did Brandon Jennings Make The Right Move?

Brandon Jennings is the latest prep-to-pros star. Yep, you heard me right, prep-to-pros...not just in the NBA. Brandon Jennings decided to skip college and go pro in Europe. As many of you know, the NBA doesn't allow high school players to go straight to the NBA without "attending" at least a year of college. So Brandon Jennings decided to take his game to Europe.

It remains to be seen whether or not Jennings made a good decision. But it seems that he did. Instead of playing against "kids" in the NCAA, Jennings will be bangin' with professionals who have bodies of professionals. One thing Jennings will have to develop sooner than later is his body. He needs to put up some mass if he wants to keep up with the big boys in the Euro league.

One more thing that Jennings will learn in Europe is how to play team ball. The NBA "one-on-one" style would not be able to win you games in Europe. If Jennings could adapt this style of play, he will be able to compete with point guards such as Steve Nash, Deron Williams, and Chris Paul. Jennings will be able to run a team smoothly, which is one quality teams are looking for right now.

A quality point guard has been a hot commodity right now in the NBA and Jennings might be the next hot stuff for the 2009 Draft.
