Brandon Jennings will follow the footsteps of Marbury and other NBA players who became big in China.
China has become the land of promise for basketball players as it is the country where you can revive your popularity, increase your playing time and be a superstar without worrying too much of the salary.
China itself is one of the best markets these days in almost any industries, and companies that are serving the global market would be foolish not to try and enter the market. But entering China is not that easy unless you are a well known basketball player.
Brandon Jennings still relatively young at 27 was an NBA superstar. He has spent a good 8 years in the NBA and has been rather successful in most of them until the last three years. The stint with Detroit was his last productive season when he was averaging not less than 15 points until he ruptured his left Achilles and had to be sidelined for a while.
It was all downhill from there as he got traded and soon found himself on one year deal with Orlando and Washington where he wasn't one of the focus on offense. He was shooting a horrible 36% and averaged 7 points per game,
New Brandon Jennings will be unleashed in China
Brandon Jennings has accepted a one-year, $1.5 million deal to play for China Shanxi. When an American with the caliber of Jennings plays for China it is almost automatic that he would be a star and would be given enough opportunity to lead the team and be the player that he was during his early years in the NBA. Brandon Jennings should have a renewed career in China and while he still wanted to play back in the NBA, it will be tempting for him to stay in China where he could be considered as a top player and get all the attention compared in the NBA.
