Brandon Jennings On Being Benched: “I Don’t See Any All-Stars In This Locker Room”
Last night the Milwaukee Bucks were beat by the 76ers 100-92, and point guard Brandon Jennings sat all the 4th quarter. The Bucks are in the midst of a playoff chase, and according to ESPN Jennings can’t understand why that move was made.
“I don’t see any All-Stars in this locker room,” Jennings said.
Jennings was held scoreless for the first time in 281 career games, and only played 17 minutes in the loss. Jennings who is looking for a max deal this summer, has had a few rough outings.
I think that everyone should be held accountable,” Jennings said. “There’s no maxed-out players in this locker room. So don’t try to put me on a pedestal and just give everyone else the freedom to do whatever they want.”
Jennings was asked if he thinks he’s being singled out?
“Of course,” Jennings told the Milwaukee-Journal Sentinel. “This is the third time this has happened. We had a sluggish start but we still had a chance to win it. It was there for us to take.”
Jim Boylan explained his choice to sit Jennings.
“I just felt like I needed to do something to energize our team,” Boylan said. “When you play that position in this league, there comes with it a lot of responsibility. The talent at that position is outstanding. So you have to bring it every single night. If that’s not happening, you need to do something.”
