Emmanuel Mudiay is skipping the NCAA and becoming a professional right out of high school. Can he forge a different path than those who've done the same?
Welcome back to my Ask A Blogger series in which I interview bloggers about the #bloglife and basketball. To see previous interviews, go here.
Today we have Hawks Hoop and Hickory High blogger Cole Patty
The Detroit Pistons got a win last night, but it wasn't enough for Mo Cheeks to keep his job. After struggling all year, the Pistons finally axed Cheeks earlier this morning.
The Detroit Pistons have fired
In case you weren't aware, last night was Drake night in Toronto, and it was magical. We already showed you the picture of Drake's jacket lined with a Vince Carter jersey, but that was just the beginning.
Once again, it's Brandon Jennings who takes the award for Pass of the Night. Very recently, he was featured for his passing against the Philadelphia 76ers. Today, it was for his nice feed against the Milwaukee
Chris Paul, Stephen Curry and Damian Lillard were all in action yesterday. Even Kevin Durant had 12 assists. But the winner of Pass of the Night? Brandon Jennings. Yep, Brandon Jennings.

Well this feels familiar.
Apparently off-the-backboard passes are becoming a thing now - well at least for Brandon Jennings that is. For the second time in three days, Jennings is featured on "Pass of
Last night on ESPN we had an interesting second game of the doubleheader. Usually national TV games feature the best the league has to offer, but last night we saw the Detroit Pistons travel to Sacramento
After much anticipation, Brandon Jennings made his Detroit debut on Sunday night. The former Milwaukee Buck was signed-and-traded this past offseason to the Pistons in exchange for Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton and Viacheslav Kravtsov.

His first game at the Palace was a success. Jennings entered the game midway through the first quarter, wearing a clear mask that protected his face and chin. He finished with 12 points, 4 assists and 4 steals in the Pistons’ (2-1) 87-77 win over the Boston Celtics (0-3).
Jennings, however, did take the facemask off in the fourth quarter.
“I’m not used to playing with something on my face so it was my decision to take it off,” he said.
A couple of the most significant plays of the game came from Jennings. After the Celtics cut their deficit to 79-77 with under two minutes to play, he forced two turnovers. His first was a steal that he dished off to Rodney Stuckey who was fouled. He drained two free throws to give the Pistons some breathing room.
Head coach Maurice Cheeks was pleased with Jennings’ play.
“It was good to see him out there and the effect he can have on the team,” Cheeks said. “He brings a little electricity to a game.”
Day 1 is in the books. The Bulls vs. Heat game turned out to be a bit of a letdown, but it was still great to see Derrick Rose back on the court in a regular season game again, and LeBron James was as
