The Milwaukee Bucks, who drafted Brandon Jennings tenth overall in the 2009 NBA Draft finally decided to part ways with the volume shooting point guard this past offseason.

Tired of his selfish ways, the Bucks traded Jennings to the Detroit Pistons where the President of Basketball Operations, Joe Dumars, wants Jennings to be…more selfish?

Yep – Dumars recently said that Jennings needs to be more aggressive on offense, suggesting that he shoot the ball more:

However, in a conversation with Joe Dumars a few days ago, the Pistons’ president of basketball operations apparently told Jennings a little selfishness could be a good thing for a point guard, despite the latter’s promise to get his new teammates more involved offensively than during his shoot-first days with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Jennings went on to say that if there is a shot available, he’s going to shoot it – and he wasn’t joking as Jennings took the most shot attempts by a Piston in nearly 60 games during their most recent loss.

Funny enough, despite a request for more shots, Jennings is actually averaging the most shots of his career – 17.6 per game.
