Jennings says he’ll learn from YouTube incident
MILWAUKEE — First-round draft pick Brandon Jennings has yet to break a sweat in practice for the Milwaukee Bucks, but he’s already doing a little backpedaling on defense.
Jennings drew unwanted attention last week when his telephone conversation with a rapper was videotaped and posted on YouTube. In the video, Jennings insisted that Ramon Sessions would not return, boasted that he will beat out Luke Ridnour as a starter and made a profane comment about the New York Knicks for not drafting him.
Jennings said Monday that he did not know the conversation was being recorded, but acknowledged that he was wrong and pledged to learn a lesson.
