Blog Photo - Brandon Jennings Determined to be a Pass First Point GuardAfter the Detroit Pistons completed their trade for point guard Brandon Jennings, Jennings went from a situation in Milwaukee where he had to be the primary shooter, to a situation where he must now be the primary distributor.  With a loaded frontcourt boasting of Josh Smith, Greg Monroe, and Andre Drummond, Brandon Jennings cannot take the type of reckless shots that he was taking in Milwaukee.  Rather, the shoot first point guard must learn how to be a pass first point guard; moving the offense inside and out. 
 
This year I think you're going to see a whole different player, just with all the talent that I have around me, the veterans that are in the locker room," Jennings said.  "I definitely have to change my game for this team, for my teammates, everybody to be successful.  The things that I was doing in Milwaukee, I won't have to do here -- take all those bad shots."
 
If Jennings can really practice what he preaches, the Detroit Pistons may be able to resurrect what they had in their old days.  Furthermore, with the addition of Chauncey Billups, the Detroit Pistons have increased their IQ as a whole.  If the Pistons can play smart (inside-out), they have all the right pieces to make a push for the newly stocked Eastern Conference.
