Shook Ankles: Is Brandon Jennings More Pony Worthy?

Comparing these two players isn’t debatable; I take Curry 10 times out of 10 without looking back. Jennings is a nice, solid point guard who can dazzle an audience and be a solid playmaker, but will he ever be an All-Star? It looks like last year’s double nickel might’ve been a bad thing; the expectations on him just seem too high this early on. Then you look at Curry: a sharpshooting, more than reliable scorer who doesn’t rely on athleticism.

Brandon Jennings Career Stats: 15.4 points, 1.3 steals, 5.4 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 36 percent from deep, 37 percent from the field, 81 percent from the free-throw line.

Stephen Curry Career Stats: 17.9 points, 1.8 steals, 5.9 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 43 percent from deep, 47 percent from the field, 91 percent from the free-throw line.

I think we have a winner. Then I watch the embarrassing clip and it’s like my eyes and mind are battling it out in a Gladiator pit. Forget stats, as the great Vince Lombardi said, they’re for losers anyway. Right? I think I might be changing my mind.
