Throwback Thursday: New Pistons PG Brandon Jennings Is a Longtime Fan

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffAugust 1, 2013

Former Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings was recently signed by the Detroit Pistons to the tune of $24M over three years, and apparently he's been a fan since he was a child.

SoleCollector shared the photo of a young Jennings sporting a Grant Hill jersey, despite growing up in LA, and this being a time when the Pistons had beaten the Lakers to earn their first title. 

Also of note: Jennings wore another Pistons shirt on Sunday at the Drew League last Sunday before he was signed to Detroit on Tuesday. Perhaps he knew something we didn't, or perhaps he was just returning to his throwback roots.
