Scott Skiles Addresses Brandon Jennings’ Remarks
Milwaukee Bucks coach Scott Skiles spoke to Brandon Jennings about the slumping rookie guard’s recent lament that he doesn’t "even know if I want to shoot the ball."
"We’re not fond of that kind of statement," Skiles said before the Bucks played at the Washington Wizards on Friday night. "He’s too important to our team and our franchise to have any sort of defeatist-type mind-set right now. And he doesn’t, really."
Skiles chalked up Jennings’ words to coming in the "heat of the moment" after a game — and to Jennings’ being only 20 years old.
"We know where his heart lies. He’s a really good person, he’s hardworking, and he loves the game," Skiles said.
