Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks says Brandon Jennings is still learning to be a PG


This is Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings fifth NBA season, but this is his first with Detroit. His head coach, Maurice Cheeks was a hearelded point guard during his time in the NBA. When it comes to playing, Cheeks thinks that Jennings is still learning the position.

Cheeks went on to further explain that there are certain intangibles – i.e. looking for your teammates before you look for your own shot – that point guards are developed with from an early age.

“It takes a certain amount of time for a guy to do that if that if they haven’t been doing it that way their whole career,” Cheeks said. “I don’t think it’s just an overnight thing, I think Brandon is learning a little of that.”

The age old question in the NBA, at what point does potential become a flame out?
