Newly acquired Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings can rub people the wrong way.
With an overly cocky attitude and sense of entitlement, Jennings has a bit of a prima donna reputation throughout the NBA. It’s a reputation that fellow player Mike Taylor is aware of, so Taylor, unhappy with some of Jennings shenanigans during a recent game at the Drew League proceeded to show his displeasure – with a slap to the face of the point guard.
Per Danny Savitzky:
Wow. Mike Taylor just slapped Brandon Jennings at the Drew. Jennings lost it and had to be held back by his whole team.
WHAT DID THE FIVE FINGERS SAY TO THE FACE?!
As to what Jennings did to Taylor? That’s not known at the moment though he probably deserved it along with a swift kick to the groin.
Nothing more came of the slap after Jennings was restrained by his entire squad of teammates, though in fairness to the new Pistons guard, I would have reacted the same way.
