Jennings Calls Pistons The New "Lob City"

Choosing to not stay pat and tank next season hoping to gather more draft picks and take a stab at the talent in next year’s free agent pool, the Detroit Pistons made two big signings in adding free agent Josh Smith, and acquiring Brandon Jennings in a sign and trade.

The trade left them with the more talented of the Brandon’s – as Brandon Knight went to Milwaukee – but people have started to question Jennings’ shoot-first mentality and how that could possibly mesh with a hefty front court of Smith, Greg Monroe, and possible franchise big man Andre Drummond

In his press conference introducing him as a Piston, Jennings said he will be looking to change his game and not shoot nearly as much as he did with the Bucks.  He even called the opportunity of playing with the talented dunk-happy front court as a chance for the Pistons to be the steal the “Lob City” moniker from the Clippers.


“We could bring the Lob City to Detroit this year,” Jennings said.

“You’re going to see a whole different player,” Jennings said. “…I definitely have to change my game.”

“The things that I was doing in Milwaukee, I won’t have to do here, take all the bad shots,” Jennings said. “Now, I can just actually be myself and be who I was five years ago when I was in high school, playing AAU basketball.”
