April 6, 2015 Updates

There was a running “discussion” over the past few months about whether or not this year’s stacked Kentucky team could beat an NBA team. It was a silly discussion, because every NBA team would destroy this team, but whatever. It was silly and most fans of college and pro hoops knew it was silly. Pistons guard Brandon Jennings was not pleased, however, and he didn’t care if it was silly. For The Win

Though Bieber’s tweet (and the vast majority of the retweets) did not count and though Raptors global ambassador Drake chose not to endorse Lowry via Twitter, some players were a bit miffed by the process, most notably, Detroit guard Brandon Jennings, who indicated, again via Twitter, that being powered by celebrity endorsements was not an ideal way for players to be selected. “So I guess next year imma have rappers, actors, & etc say vote for me for all star. I mean that’s all it takes,” Jennings tweeted, before later adding he believed Lowry deserved to make the team. Toronto Sun

"They're still competing hard, still playing hard," Jennings said. "I still think we're going to make the playoffs, if you ask me. We just signed John Lucas, another veteran point guard, so the confidence is still high. Like I told the guys all the time, the main goal is to keep going hard every night and keep playing." NBA.com

"Definitely disappointing," Jennings said Tuesday night at The Palace, taking in his first Pistons game since the injury after spending a week in New York, where the surgery was performed. "I was having the best time of my career playing basketball, especially (because) we were winning and were one of the hottest teams in the NBA and to come down with a season-ending injury really (stinks) because of all the hard work I put in this summer and then for me to go down was just really tough."

Detroit Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings is out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon, but his thumbs were healthy enough to rip LeBron James on Twitter Monday night. In a discussion with a frequent NBA blogger on the social media site of the league's greatest all-time players, Jennings tweeted that James "run(s) too much when *&$% gets tough," a reference to James leaving the Cavaliers for Miami in 2010 and then rejoining Cleveland after the Heat lost in the Finals last summer.
