Remember when Brandon Jennings said the Bucks were going to beat the Miami Heat in six.
Similarly, he’s still displaying that reckless bravado again. This time, he’s actually convincing people (the Milwaukee Bucks) that he’s actually worth $12 million per year.
The Racine Journal-Times reports that Jennings is demanding $12 million per season, and the Bucks are actually starting to consider moving in that direction.
Jennings demanding $12M a season; Bucks starting to cave and are offering just over $11M.

(Insert punchline here)
But in all seriousness, let’s take a look at this.
Now, Jennings may not be that out of his mind, after all. Let’s remember Ty Lawson received a $12 million per year extension last October.
Is Jennings better — or as good — than Lawson? Probably not, but there’s not that big of a difference between the two.
But he thinks he is, and it’s working.
The Atlanta Hawks, reportedly, are interested in making a swap with the Bucks for Jennings in exchange for Jeff Teague. It isn’t known, yet, if the Hawks would be willing to offer up that kind of dough to a character such as Jennings.
Again, can anyone explain to me what exactly the Bucks are doing?
