Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

Impressive Brandon Jennings

His interview with Rod Burks

  • Print




You have to applaud Bucks rookie sensation Brandon Jennings. He's inspiring on and off the court. Hopefully some young people watched his recent interview with TodaysTMJ4 Sportscaster Rod Burks. Especially those dreaming of fame and fortune. In that exclusive, Brandon admitted that he is driving a Ford Edge. Not one of the glitzy glamorous big deluxe rides that we often associate with NBA stars. He is smart enough to know what matters. He wants to work hard, does not want to waste his money, and is in no hurry to buy an expensive vehicle just because he can afford one.

During an exclusive interview Burkes joked with Jennings saying, "I've been to the Bucks Parking lot you see Mercedes, Lexus, Range Rovers. Are you telling me you're rockin' in a Ford "Edge?" Brandon's answer, "Yeah, I'm rocking a Ford Edge because it's something to get me by, and also it snows a lot, and I don't need anything nice. I need something to get me from A to B right?" Burks goes on to say, They guys on the team have to be giving you a lot of smack." Jennings admits, "They were making fun of it a little bit. But at the end of the day I'm going to save my money right now."

How impressive! A young star with his feet on on the ground.

Jennings sounds much wiser than his 20 years. A rising star, choosing to emphasize discipline and hard work over instant gratification. And with his attitude, it's a good bet this NBA star will score success on and off the court.
