Brandon Jennings is a man of many firsts. The devilishly quick point guard bypassed a one-and-done college career in the Arizona desert for a more lucrative stint with Pallacanestro Virtus Roma in Italy. (A little Mediterranean sunshine never hurt anyone, did it?) Jennings also was the first hoops athlete to sign on with upstart Baltimore-based brand Under Armour who has made noise in the football and training worlds with functional, anti-aesthetic releases. The company is set to deliver hardwood kicks just in time for the 2010 season. (UA released cleats in ’07, trainers in ’08, runners in ’09 and so on…) In the meantime, you can preoccupy yourself with the latest images to surface from ‘cross the Atlantic, as BJ is tantalizing us with early weartest samples of Armour’s product. The first impressions are promising! And if you’re one of those restless cats, agog and hankering over every detail regarding Jennings and Under Armour developments, be sure to check out his interactive experience on the company’s website, “When In Rome”.
